Beautiful place and well worth a visit. Allow yourself plenty of time to queue though as even though the title says you can skip the queue....you cannot. I asked 2 separate staff members and they said no everyone queues for everything.

We booked 5 tickets in total 3 Adults 2 Children For explorer expedition and VR effect Upon arrival they said that the tickets issued by viator vendor is only for 1adults and 2 children. Rest 2 tickets were for VR only. So we had to pay another 395 dirhams over there for quarium n zoo explorer expedition. GOOD WAY OF MAKING MONEY GUYS. KEEP ON CHEATING N FOOL PEOPLE. U WILL GO A VERY LONG WAY.

We decided to book this tour to kill time between checking out of our hotel and catching a late evening international flight. The aquarium was easy to find and presenting our tickets was an easy process. The aquarium and underwater zoo was a little underwhelming. For Dubai where everything is grand I really expected more. I thought it would have been larger and felt I could have gotten almost the same experience I did purchasing tickets by simply not purchasing tickets and looking through the free observation wall of the aquarium within the mall. The type of fish were however interesting with some I'd never seen before.

Had a really enjoyable morning here...

Had a really enjoyable morning here. The aquarium was not as big as I expected I thought Dubai, it will be massive but it was totally the right size seeing as it is inside The Mall! The glass bottom boat was not what we expected as it just takes you around in a circle and the glass is so small you couldn't really see anything, you could see more looking over the side. The range of fish and parrots they have here are really great. Would highly recommend a trip here and we would certainly go back again.

The aquarium is better seen free...

The aquarium is better seen free from the mall area. The tour itself and the admission are not needed. We took the researcher option and it was a waste of time. Watching a video is not my way of under sea adventure.
