You can have all sorts of fun experiences at the impressive venue, including rides on glass bottom boats that let you peer into the water below; cage snorkeling; shark dives; and animal feeding.
The ten million-litre Aquarium Tank is the world’s largest suspended aquarium. Situated in the Dubai Mall, it is home to all manner of sea creatures, including 400 sharks and rays. The 51-metre tank also boasts the largest collection of sand tiger sharks anywhere on the planet.
In the Underwater Zoo, visitors will be able to discover what goes on in rainforests, oceans and along rocky shores. There will also be a chance to catch glimpses of magnificent humbolt penguins, caiman crocodiles, giant spider craps and piranhas.
The shark dives allow you to enter the impressive aquarium tank yourself and are open to everyone, whether you’re an expert diver or cannot swim.
