It was an amazing experience. The journey with the various creatures was fun filled with the knowledge. It is suggested to give every guest a small booklet upon arrival. This will help them to have more knowledge and understanding about the various species on the display.

This is my second visit to the Aquarium and we thoroughly enjoyed the interactive and informative journey. However I do wish to highlight an issue with the tickets purchased online. We had purchased 3 tickets priced at AED160/- that included the aquarium and glass boat package. On arrival we were informed that we were each booked for the AED140/- package and would need to pay an additional AED50/- per person to upgrade. Thankfully an alert staff / supervisor intervened when she observed I was rather unhappy and quickly reissued the correct tickets ensuring we had a pleasant evening.
