The Dubai Aquarium is one of the biggest with more than 140 species to keep future marine biologists busy. Little mermaids will love the mermaid encounters on offer – from a simple photo to full transformation. The underwater zoo is a fun, educational experience – perfect for curious children who love animals. Marvel at the world’s biggest crocodile and discover the secrets of the night owl, fruit bat, scorpion and spider. There’s even a ‘junior aquarist experience’ allowing kids to get a ‘behind the scenes’ look at life at the aquarium, help feed the animals and get a close view of the shark feeding.
