Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo - Jelly Fish



The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo was designed by Peddle Thorp and is managed by Emaar Entertainment. The aquarium, located in The Dubai Mall, showcases more than 300 species of marine animals, including sharks and rays.

Its 270-degree acrylic walk-through tunnel lets visitors see a variety of underwater animals up close. A special 'lunar-cyclic' lighting system changes the ambience of the tank depending on the time of day.

The Underwater Zoo is located above the aquarium, and provides an interactive approach to educating children and visitors on the ecology and sustainability of marine life. The journey consists of three ecological zones: Rainforest, Rocky Shore, and Living Ocean, each of which features a variety of aquatic animals including penguins, crocodiles, piranhas, giant spider crabs, water rats, sea horses, and jellyfish amongst others.


The attraction was awarded with the ‘Certificate of Excellence’ award by TripAdvisor in 2012, and won the ‘Images Most Admired Retailer of the Year – Leisure & Entertainment’ at Images RetailME Awards 2012.
