Dubai Aquarium at The Dubai Mall is running trips in its glass-bottomed boat so you can get even closer to the many exciting creatures that live in the world’s largest aquarium. The 15-minute tours run every half an hour, and seats on the boat can be booked at the main desk. Perfect for budding marine biologists, but sticking your hands over the sides isn’t advised…
Dhs25 per person, plus an optional Dhs5 for a pack of fish food. Open Sun-Wed 10am-10pm; Thu-Sat 10am-midnight. Dubai Aquarium, The Dubai Mall, www.thedubaiaquarium.com (04 232 8866).
