- The Explorer Experience takes you underwater with the sharks and dugongs in a submersible simulator, then puts you on a glass-bottom boat to witness hundreds of sea creatures beneath you. Learn the facts from your guides and feed the fish.
- The Researcher Experience takes you on a guided tour behind the scenes, to see where the scientists work. See the Sea Jelly Lab and watch a baby shark developing from an egg. Then step up to ‘The Interactive Platform’ and feed the stingrays and sharks.
Somewhere within the 10 million liters of water, 33,000 fish and hundreds of sharks, lurks the truly amazing King Crocodile and his family. Have fun finding them at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. From the moment you walk through the underwater tunnel your experience will be filled with aquatic thrills. Skip the line and dip a toe into the life aquatic.
The aquarium features an incredible walk-through glass tunnel that whisks you into a whole new watery world. You’ll get up close and personal with fiery piranhas, ethereal sting rays and flopping jelly fish. Oh and sharks. Lots of sharks.
They have hundreds of them here, including the largest collection of Sand Tiger sharks in the world. Pose with them - they're behind 30 inches of acrylic panel (the world’s thickest), which means they’ll get snapped long before you will.
With the Researcher Experience package you’ll also enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of where the aquarium scientists work. See a baby shark while it's still an egg, and head to the Sea Jelly Lab, where Aquarium scientists simulate environmental changes to encourage breeding. Fascinating stuff. The guide will share their expertise with you on such cool things as the aquarium’s breeding program for seahorses (the only animal whose male gives birth instead of the female!)
With the The Explorer Experience you'll head underwater with the sharks and dugongs in a submersible simulator. Then you'll board a glass-bottom boat to float over the aquarium, and witness hundreds of sea creatures beneath you. You can even feed the fish!
And then there’s the absolute highlight of the whole experience. King Croc, himself. This real-life monster originally hails from Australia, measures a gigantic 5 meters, weighs 750kg, and has a bite fiercer than any other animal on earth. Don’t judge him, though. He’s a committed family man. He recently fathered three baby crocs and has been with his Queen Croc for 20 years!
