    Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo
    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo is one of the largest indoor aquariums in the World and it has won a Guinness World Record for the world’s 'Largest Acrylic Panel.' The 10-million liter Dubai Aquarium tank is located in the Dubai Mall, the largest mall in the world, and it houses over 33,000 aquatic animals, comprising over 140 species. Over 300 sharks and rays live in this tank, including the largest collection of Sand Tiger Sharks in the world. Located just above the aquarium, Underwater Zoo brings its visitors up close with penguins, piranhas, crabs, water rats, sea horses, jellyfish, and more. Choose between two packages — the Researcher or Explorer — and see below for more details on what's included with your experience. Option 1: Researcher Experience Take a tour of the back-of-house facilities with a guide, and get an up-close look at the various breeding projects the scientists are working on. Study the Sea Jelly Lab where Aquarium scientists simulate environmental change to encourage breeding, or take a close look at a baby shark developing from an egg. Then continue your journey to ‘Underwater Observatory’ which puts guests at eye level with the inhabitants of Dubai Aquarium and have the unique chance of feeding stingrays and sharks. Option 2: Explorer Experience Alternatively, step inside ‘Dubai Aquarium Explorer’ a Submersible Simulator which takes guests on a virtual adventure among dugongs, whale sharks, and many other sea creatures. Head down to water level and step on board the glass-bottom boats, drift out over the surface of the aquarium and watch thousands of animals swim below, and learn interesting facts from your guides while having chance to feed fish. See the Itinerary section below for more information on what's included with both experiences. -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- The King Croc The Underwater Zoo is also home to one of nature‘s rare phenomenon and one of the world’s largest reptiles. King Croc and his female companion of 20 years reside here in a special enclosure that replicates their natural habitat. At over 5 meters long and weighing an imposing 750 kg plus, the 40 year old King Croc weighs the equivalent of over 15 fully-grown men. UAE’s Night Creatures ‘UAE’s Night Creatures’ in Underwater Zoo takes visitors through an educational journey to discover the amazing diversity of Arabian wildlife and features a variety of animal species that thrive in the desert environment. From Arabian Toads, Fruit Bats, Giant Camel Spiders, Scorpions and Hedgehogs, to Veiled Chameleons, Frog Eye Geckos, Ornate Spiny Tail Lizards and Cheesmans Gerbils, these animals also present a vivid sketch of the Arabian desert environment and how these species thrive on wadis, rocky mountains and sand dunes. Discovery Channel’s Shark Week Exhibit Discovery Channel’s Shark Week Exhibit brings the popular “Shark Week’ franchise to life and offers guests’ access to the underwater world of the sharks through a truly innovative and interactive experience. Located at Underwater Zoo, guests enter the new exhibit through the world’s first interactive digital shark cage, before moving towards the main feature, a beautiful hybrid of digital technology and living aquarium. The exhibit is formed of a 20m aquarium demi-tunnel, and the back wall of the display is made up of LED screens. Guests can choose their favorite shark species to swim on the LED background, bringing the heroes of Discovery Channel’s ‘Shark Week’ to life.
