6 Tips for Visiting the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo

King Croc at the Dubai Aquarium
Watch the feedings throughout the day - make sure to be there when King Croc eats lunch, he has a bite force of 1700lb PSI, which is one of the most powerful bites in the world! Sharks and rays are also fed by divers who enter the aquarium, which is also pretty cool to watch.

The aquarium is pretty busy every day of the week, but it’s less busy first thing in the morning and later in the evening if you want to avoid the crowds. The aquarium tends to be at its busiest between 5 and 6 pm.
You can see part of the tank from inside the Dubai Mall without buying tickets, but you won’t see all the fish, or get access to the zoo which has land-based and amphibious creatures.
If you’re interested in seeing animals in their natural habitats but you don’t want to leave Dubai to do it, then why not visit the VR Zoo? The VR Zoo experience can be added to any package for AED 30, and you can choose between the Animal 360 Experience or the Ocean Experience.
Plan 1 to 2 hours for your visit - it takes about 15 to 30 minutes to visit the tunnel, then 45 to 90 minutes for the rest of the exhibits.
There’s a combo-ticket available for the Dubai Aquarium and the 124th and 125th floors of the Burj Khalifa, which is great value for money. Both attractions are either inside the Dubai Mall or a short walk away from it, so the combination makes for an excellent day trip. If you’re not too keen on heights then there are plenty of other attractions inside the Dubai Mall to keep you entertained, including an ice rink, the Dubai Fountain, and KidZania.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s special about the Dubai Aquarium?

The Dubai Aquarium is one of the world’s largest suspended aquariums, holding over 2.6 million gallons (10 million liters) of water. It’s 36 feet (11 meters) deep and 167 feet long, and guests visit it by walking through a tunnel. There’s also a small zoo with a combination of land and amphibious creatures and a special exhibit for the nocturnal animals of the United Arab Emirates.

How many species can I see at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo?

The main tank holds more than 33,000 creatures from over 140 species, and then there are even more animals to see in the zoo section of the attraction! You can see different species of sharks and rays, plus clownfish, batfish, giant catfish, guitarfish and unicorn fish, and oh so many more!

How long is the tunnel?

The tunnel is 157 feet (48 meters) long, slightly shorter than the tank as a whole. While walking through the tunnel you’ll get a 270-degree view of the inside of the tank from 36 feet underwater).

Who is King Croc?

King Croc is one of the Aquarium & Underwater Zoo’s major stars! He’s a 40-year-old saltwater crocodile from Queensland, Australia, and is one of the largest reptiles in captivity. Back home in Oz he had a reputation as a “problem crocodile”, who was aggressive towards humans and other male crocodiles, but the Dubai Aquarium have given him his own space to call his own. He’s over 16.4 feet (5 meters) long, weighs 118 stones (750kgs - about as much as 14 grown men), and could grow even bigger over the next 50 years! He lives with his partner of over 20 years, known as Queen Croc, and you can visit them both on the 2nd floor of the aquarium’s zoo.

Um... how thick is the glass between visitors and King Croc?

The acrylic glass covering the enclosure is 50mm (or about 2 inches) thick - it’s totally safe for the crocodiles, staff, and public.

There are glass-bottomed boats??

There are! You can ride on top of the aquarium in a glass-bottomed boat to get another view of the fish below. Boat rides take 15 to 20 minutes and are not recommended for pregnant visitors. Some ticket packages include the glass-bottomed boat experience, or you can choose it as an add-on once you arrive at the aquarium.

Can I take photographs?

Yes, photography is allowed throughout the aquarium. Some exhibits ask you not to use flash so as not to harm or alarm the animals, but these are clearly marked.
