At the aquarium, spread across 10 zones, visitors can expect to see more than 330 species of marine life, including sharks, rays and turtles. These creatures are cared for by a team of 80 sea-life experts and specialists.

“We are delighted to offer this limited discount to UAE residents, giving them the opportunity to discover the wonders of the ocean while learning about its delicate ecosystem,” said Paul Hamilton, general manager, The National Aquarium.

Visitors will have a wide variety of interactive experiences at one of the largest aquariums in the region. Also, there is Bella and Rio’s interactive playground located in the Flooded Forest area for children to learn and discover fun and exciting facts about animals and the rainforest through various exciting games.

“We want to encourage families to experience the aquarium's enlightening journey to broaden their understanding of marine habitats and learn ways to contribute to their conservation,” Hamilton noted.

Additionally, visitors can visit the National Geographic’s Pristine Seas exhibition, which highlights the importance of marine protected areas as a mechanism for protecting and restoring the world's oceans.

“By combining the aquarium's journey with National Geographic exhibits and our edutainment programmes, we hope to inspire our visitors to become stewards of ocean preservation as well as enjoy fun-filled family time,” Hamilton added.
