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.

Great
Amazing to see what they have done in middle of a shopping mall. This ticket does not include access to the penguin cave!!! Also, although we purchased the ticket here we had to wait in the queue again because the QR code on the ticket wasn’t working

Burj Khalifa, Dubai aquarium and Underwater zoo Combo
I had a 6 hour layover and booked to go. Because of delays getting though customs and car service was late, my 8:00pm booking was missed. However the counter accepted my voucher and was able to do both in the time I had before going back to the airport for my connecting flight.

Burj Khalifa and Dubai Aquarium Combo Admission Ticket
The aquarium is a little bit underwhelming and some parts of the underwater zoo are only accessible to those who pay extra, but overall a very good value for money ticket. Very good to see 2 of the most common Dubai attractions.

The penguin cove could have been more exciting. The guide was very low and u clear, hard to understand. Other than that, pretty cool aquarium.

Burj Khalifa: At the Top (125th floor) & Dubai Aquarium Combo Entrance
Amazing views but it was overcrowded on both 124 & 125. They’d be better limiting numbers for a better overall experience and less waiting around.
