Full description
Discover a fascinating aquatic world with a day admission ticket to the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. The 10-million-liter tank is home to more than 33,000 aquatic animals, comprising over 140 species. There are more than 300 sharks and rays living in the tank, including the world’s largest collection of sand tiger sharks. Just above the aquarium is the Underwater Zoo. Get up close to penguins, piranhas, seahorses, jellyfish and more. Step inside the Submersible Simulator for a virtual adventure among dugongs, whale sharks and many other sea creatures. The Underwater Zoo provides an interactive approach to educating children and visitors on the ecology and sustainability of marine life. The journey consists of three ecological zones: Rainforest, Rocky Shore, and Living Ocean. The Penguin encounter allows you to get face to face with a colony of 16 Gentoo penguins residing at the new Penguin Cove exhibit along with a zookeeper. This exciting encounter starts with an educational video about the incredible Antarctic birds and their original habitat. Next, visitors get to meet the Gentoo Penguins, enjoy exceptional photo opportunities, and experience up-close penguin interaction.

All in all the experience was good. Only we had a small problem. We had booked the visit to the aquarium and the penguin bay. At first they didn't want to let us into the Penguin Bay because we had supposedly not booked it. But then we were able to clear that up and we could also look at the penguins.

If you would like to see many different fishes then YES go to the aquarium. If you would like to see something more like the shark ponds or penguins buy this add on ticket. Diving with the sharks is also an option (next time). If you are looking for the free visit, look at the aquarium from a slightly larger distance during the shopping.

This is great for any family or individual. I recommend adding one of the extras to see what goes on behind the scenes in relation to the work the aquarium does regarding feeding the many fish and other animals, the reproduction of some of the aquarium species, and how they help to protect the environment. My further recommendation is to take your time going through the aquarium and underwater zoo to fully appreciate what it has to offer.
