The 10 million liters of water at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo is home to roughly 33,000 fish and hundreds of sharks. Have fun finding them all! From the moment you walk through the underwater tunnel, your education on a watery world commences!

See fiery piranhas, ethereal sting rays and flopping jellyfish. Count the toothy-smiled sharks, and step inside the Submersible Simulator for a virtual adventure among dugongs, whale sharks and many other sea creatures.

The all-new immersive Penguin Encounter Dubai lets you step inside the Penguin Cove habitat and go face-to-feather with the waddling colony of live Gentoo penguins. You'll learn about their natural behaviors from an expert zookeeper guide, and also watch a fun video all about these incredible Antarctic birds.

Over rated, should name it Dubai Aquarium and Maze. Everyone looked lost after entering the place.

Excellent
It was very interesting and educational. I’ve learnt a lot of fun facts. What I would have liked more is seeing and observing sharks better. Maybe in a fish tank where they could swim a bit...
It was very interesting and educational. I’ve learnt a lot of fun facts. What I would have liked more is seeing and observing sharks better. Maybe in a fish tank where they could swim a bit further away from other fish. Overall it was great and I’ve also noticed how helpful and well informed were the staff.
