Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo#2 of 74 places to visit in Dubai
Reaching 51 meters long, this aquarium tank hosts more than 33 thousand of underwater animals and creatures of 140 sea species. Oceanarium has several programs for more detailed acquaintance with the underwater world, including scuba diving, small trips on the glass bottom boat, and others.
Located just above the aquarium, Underwater Zoo leads visitors through three ecological zones – Rainforest, Rocky Shore and Living Ocean – to bring them up close with penguins, piranhas, crabs, water rats, sea horses, jellyfish and plenty more. A fascinating new addition at Underwater Zoo is King Croc, regarded as nature’s rare phenomenon and one of the world’s largest reptiles.
There is a little trick for those who would like to save some money but still see the marvels of the largest oceanarium: you can come around the aquarium from the backside at level one (where Romano’s Macaroni & Grill restaurant and H&M store are situated) or at zero level from any side of the underwater tunnel.
The ticket price for adults is 100 dirhams (≈$30). The cost covers entrance to the Underwater Zoo, Aquarium Tunnel and Underwater Observatory.
Also you can buy tickets with some additional options: a guided tour to the aquarium "backstage" and a gift shop discount coupon (80 dirhams, or $22) – all these plus feeding the fish will cost 90 dirhams (≈$24,5). Besides, you can buy a club member card for 250 dirhams (≈$68).
The world’s largest Oceanarium is situated on the ground level of Dubai Mall, you can get there by subway: the nearest station is Burj Khalifa/The Dubai Mall.
