Dubai Aquarium

The 10-million litre Dubai Aquarium tank, located on the Ground Level of The Dubai Mall, is the largest suspended aquarium in the world.


It houses thousands of aquatic animals, comprising over 140 species. Over 400 Sharks and Rays live in this tank, including the largest collection of Sand Tiger Sharks in the world.


There are numerous ways for visitors to experience the main Aquarium tank, which measures 51 metres in length, 20 metres in depth and 11 metres in height.


The main Guinness World Record-winning acrylic panel in front of the  tank provides free viewing to the public from all 3 levels of the mall


The 48 metre walk-through Tunnel provides 270 degree views from 11 metres below the  surface of the tank


Visitors can go on a Glass-bottom boat ride, providing unique views of the tank from beneath their feet


Those who want to experience a dip in the tank can opt for a Cage Snorkeling Experience


And for the adventurous ones, a Shark Dive is a once in a lifetime opportunity, bringing you within inches of a large variety of sharks and rays.

You don't need to pay the entrance fee to view the aquarium, since there's a huge window right inside the Dubai Mall. But entering is more fun, and an aquarium tunnel leads to a deeper view as well as to a fascinating underwater zoo. The magnificent aquarium boasts over 30,000 tropical fish while the underwater zoo exhibits marine creatures from three ecological zones, including rainforest, rocky shore, and living ocean. Among the diverse sea life you'll see here are penguins, sharks, piranhas, lionfish, giant spider crabs, eels, and octopus. There's also a rock pool that children can explore, as well as a glass bottom boat offering a chance to feed the fish.
