Overall everything was organized very well. It was not clear that there are two types of tickets when I ordered, we were surprised at the aquarium. 99 AED is too much for only one half of a ticket, at least it should include the both parts. Thanks for understanding. One more comment. It will be good if there will be shuttle from big hotels, it will enhance the visibility and accessibility of visitors.

The tour within the aquariaum was smooth and amazing, however ha ing a tour guide to provide expalntion to visitors would have add value a lot. Though at bthe ended on the rescue section were got well explantion on what they do and how they have saved, and feed animals, which was appealing aveyone. We booked tickects online but there was technical challenges and had to wait for long to get the tickets. Otherwise, it was good.
