The Basics

The Dubai Aquarium, home to the world’s largest suspended aquarium, also ranks among Dubai’s most popular family attractions. You can choose between two admission packages: the Researcher Experience, which includes a guided behind-the-scenes tour of the Underwater Observatory, or the Explorer Experience, which includes a glass-bottom boat tour and a submersible simulator experience. Add-ons offer the opportunity to interact with sea otters, rays, or King Croc, the aquarium’s most famous resident. Guided tours of Dubai that include aquarium entrance might also feature the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Creek, and the Burj Al-Arab, depending on the option you choose. The aquarium is also an option on the Dubai Explorer Pass.

Dubai Mall Aquarium & Underwater Zoo Basic Tickets
The trip itself was very good and it was a good deal. I want to focus on the agent’s team here. I made a mistake with the date and they proceeded to help me and fix my problem while I was right in the line. Great support and help.

Dubai Aquarium Ticket with Penguin Encounter at Dubai Mall
Pingouins are amazing ! The aquarium is useless as we see enough from the mall but the zoo is nice, notably the crocodiles. This is not a “ticket” so you still have to make the queue but there were not a lot of people.

Burj Khalifa: At the Top (125th floor) & Dubai Aquarium Combo Entrance
Wonderful views. The only frustration was that we prepaid for tickets and we still had to stand in the ticket line for a long time, and again for the aquarium. They should have separate lines for people who already have tickets.

Burj Khalifa, Dubai aquarium and Underwater zoo Combo
It was a fun experience with the highlight being the zoo and Burg Khalifa view. My son (18) enjoyed the afternoon and also a plus not having to leave the mall.
