Home to more than 45,000 animals with 60 different exhibits, National Aquarium is the Middle East’s largest aquarium with its 10 zones standing over 5,500-square-meter (around 59,000-square-foot) floor area. The journey starts with UAE’s national treasures and tells the stories of pearl divers. Then, guests move to the Red Sea Wreck where they experience the Red Sea’s biodiversity. Atlantic Cave holds the secrets of the Atlantic Ocean and Sub Zone follows Atlantic with its submarine theming and its deep sea creatures. The Ring of Fire leads guests toward a volcanic cave, and following that, Ocean Magic will uncover the secrets of oceans. In Frozen Ocean, puffins accompany the guests and in the flooded forest the journey will continue from rivers to the seas.
