A Hidden Gem in Abu Dhabi

The National Aquarium Abu Dhabi is impressive. It features an astounding diversity of marine life and offers a fantastic chance to witness the natural formation of pearls. The variety of species you will see in each of its zones will mesmerize you. I loved the Flooded Forest themed zone, which was captivating and an immersive experience.

A Must-Visit for Shark Lovers

If you're a shark enthusiast like me, the National Aquarium Abu Dhabi is a dream come true. It was a spell-binding experience to see a variety of sharks, including hammerheads and zebra sharks up close. The Black Sea Devil and Super Snake were pleasant surprise. There are 10 themed zones in the Aquarium, and all offer an immersive experience.

A Mesmerizing Underwater Journey

The massive 9000-square-meter aquarium is a sight to behold. Waling through the tunnel and seeing a variety of fish species swimming over our heads was a wonderful experience. There are many things to see and do at this Aquarium. You can walk on a glass bridge, visit an animal hospital, and take a glass bottom boat for an underwater glimpse.

Educational and Entertaining

The National Aquarium Abu Dhabi is a perfect venue for entertainment and educational. The Aquarium showcases amazing biodiversity of the Eastern Arabian Peninsula. Exploring all the themed zones was a great learning opportunity. A perfect outing for families and nature enthusiasts.

Review ImageMichael KSeptember 2023

The National Aquarium Abu Dhabi was better than I had anticipated. The displays are thoughtfully laid out to make for simple navigation. I was in awe seeing the intelligence and agility of dolphins. It was wonderful to stingrays, sea turtles, Eagle Rays, hammerhead sharks, and hundreds of marine animals at leisure.
