I was able to experience the Aquarium Tank last time when my sister was here in Dubai. Its her first time here in Dubai so I made sure that she will get the best time ever. So I booked a two ticket so that we can avail the Cage Snorkeling Experience. This experience is really awesome because you are going to go inside the largest suspended aquarium in the world. With an estimate of probably 9 to 11-million liter aquarium, they were able to build this thing inside the mall. Super amazing fact!!!!

This aquarium holds a thousands of marine animals with the estimate numbers of I guess over hundred fifty species. It has sharks....real sharks, lols, rays (big and small) and the collection of Sand Tiger Sharks. It is so cool even just watching from the outside, well whats more if you're inside the tank.

One of the scary thing I did was the Cage Snorkeling Experience here in Dubai mall inside the Aquarium. At first I was thinking, what will happen if the cage break down and we will be trap with the hundreds of sharks and rays..or maybe I will loose my oxygen or a lot of weird things going on in my mind but this is really is it! Ok the water is cold but I need to do this.. I paid for this already. From the time I touched the water, I started to feel amazed, not scared at all. I did it! This is one of the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. I was with the marine animals. I can touch some of the small fishes. But it scares me a little bit whenever the sharks are trying to swim close to us.

Best ever water adventure!

One of the spot here inside The Dubai Mall, always expect that this area are always crowded. But you will not feel it once you experienced there inside the tunnel see the different amazing creatures of water. And of course taking pictures is always there. For only 80dhs we experienced the amazing area of the Dubai Aquarium especially the Underwater Zoo which is located at 2nd Floor...weeet weee you really enjoy all the animals there. Most of the kids really love it. Good Place to visit for family and group of friends bonding...

The kids love the place and so do I. If you have not gone through the tunnel and gone up stairs and seen all the fish you definitely should. Dubai Aquarium is a great thing to do with the kids before lunch at least once. After you have done the whole experience once it is great to to come up to the second floor where it is less crowded and stair in awe. Plus it is a little expensive when you have 3 kids and it only absorbs about 45 minutes.

I have to admit Dubai has done it again and produced another fantastic experience. Now all I have to do is get the kids to stop bugging me to go back.

For me, rates for the aquarium and underwater zoo was kinda expensive. I did enjoy the underwater zoo but most of is not worth my money. perhaps more activities for adults and kids at heart?

This is a good place to time pass with getting knowledge specially if u have kids, this is more of a kids attractions than an adult but its worth going at least once. The glass bottom boat ride is small, tunnel is awesome, underwater zoo is having good varieties. Kids love taking snaps through the glass bubble and walking on rope way. Do not go on a crowded day as the area is small and soon become suffocated. Going all the attractions tunnel, zoo, boat ride +.... together is a cheaper option rather going one at a time and if you r emirates nbd card holder, u will get some good offer like buy one get one. The place is good at least for a single visit or two.

Although a little expensive; but an amazing place to visit. No matter what age group you fall in, it will surely hold your attention for a long time. It has a huge collection of under-water life and a very informative yet entertaining place for kids to visit.

When I first visited Dubai Mall, I was so amazed of the enormous attraction they have - The Aquarium and Underwater Zoo. Even there's a glass wall, you will see and feel that the sea creatures are nearly coming to you.

Its truly an amazing experience to walk in the tunnel while having a close view on marine life. It’s an enjoyable experience not only for kids but for adults also. The place is pretty big and well maintained and has various species of water creatures. In underwater zoo you can watch Piranha, Giant Catfish, Penguin colony, and more. Dubai aquarium and underwater zoo is worth watching at least once specially if you have kids.

First time I came here we spent around 1 hours just wandering around and looking through everything on both sides. There's also a really small shark tank located on the side of the aquarium but all the sharks are smaller in size and just swim aimlessly in an empty tank :( I liked the different jelly fish, small fish. They have cute, interactive exhibits for kids. Overall, the aquarium is a little underwhelming but it's a great place for kids since it's more engaging for them and they probably won't get tired of walking through it. There are a lot of activities for them to do so you'll find a lot of families here on the weekend.

I really like this place. I went there for the first time and I was in awe of its natural beauty. It's really great to see the nature and the creatures surround it. If you wanna go make sure to bring your camera with you and make the most of it while there. Although i'm afraid of sharks but they're really are beautiful to look at.

Interesting place. Beautiful and well organized. They have species of animals including sharks, catfish. A nice view of marine life. It’s a pleasure to watch them so The underwater Zoo is fascination. They have Piranha, Humbolt, Penguins, Caiman Crocodiles, and many more amazing aquatic animals. A great fun for all especially for kids. Worth visiting at least once.

This is a great, great thing to show visitors as it's easy, cheap and generally wows everyone who sees it. Another thing is you can really make a day out of it with the other amazing attractions in dubai mall. If you have kids they have special programs here like zoo type stuff. For me its just nice to walk through the tunnel and stare off into blue abyss. One piece of advice for them would be to have either a poster that says what all the fish are, or a really knowledgeable marine expert there....at atlantis the staff know what every fish is....and you can ask them what's this and what's that...makes it even better.

You need to take the kids there. Perfect place for photography and you really get a sense of being under water, without getting you hair wet!
