Sharjah Aquarium

Aquarium in Sharjah

Enter an 'abandoned dhow' for close-ups of maritime creatures from the UAE's west and east coast without getting your feet wet. Moray eels lurk, blacktip reef sharks prowl, eagle rays flop and jellyfish dance around tanks that re-create Dibba Rock (when in season), mangroves, Shark Island's coral reefs and other local watery habitats. We like the touchscreens, but a few more labels wouldn’t hurt.
