Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo
Time Out Says
Take on a shark encounter, where you’ll be plunged into the depths of the aquarium tank (inside a cage) as 300 of the remarkable creatures swarm around you for feeding time.
You can also meet the aquarium’s resident crocodile, regarded as one of nature’s rarest phenomenons and one of the largest reptiles in the world at more than five metres long and 750kg in weight.
If that’s a bit too big for you, you can marvel at the pirhanas, crabs, water rats and the swarms of fish that inhabit the huge tank inside The Dubai Mall.
The Underwater Zoo is also home to regular exhibitions including UAE’s Night Creatures, presenting the experience of nightfall in the desert and the animals that come to life under cover of darkness.
