About The Experience

Due to the immense popularity of Khor Al Maqta, featuring iconic sights like the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in its vicinity, it’s no surprise that the surrounding area offers extensive and luxurious entertainment options. One prominent attraction in this area is the colossal AED 850 million Al Qana Complex, with its centerpiece being the National Aquarium Abu Dhabi. This complex aligns with Abu Dhabi Vision 2030’s goal of transforming the capital city into a global tourism hub. Developed along a 2.4-kilometer stretch of Al Maqta Canal, the mega-project is a joint effort between the Abu Dhabi Municipality and Al Barakah International Investments.

Explore Al Qana’s Top Attraction Covering over 150,000 square meters, Al Qana boasts a range of world-class attractions. The most remarkable among them is undoubtedly the National Aquarium Abu Dhabi. This massive 9,000-square-meter aquarium holds the title of the Middle East’s largest aquarium. It features an extensive collection of exhibits from different parts of the world. Visitors can marvel at one of the region’s most diverse gatherings of rays and sharks, including eagle rays, hammerhead sharks, zebra sharks, and other incredible species like the Black Sea Devil and Super Snake.

Discover 10 Themed Zones The National Aquarium Abu Dhabi is divided into 10 captivating zones, each showcasing hundreds of thousands of marine wonders from over 300 species. Explore “UAE’s Natural Treasures” to see aquatic animals native to the Eastern Arabian Peninsula and learn about the region’s pearl farming heritage. Venture into the “Atlantic Cave,” be amazed by the beauty of the “Red Sea Wreck,” and delve into the world of submarines and marine life at the “Sub.” Experience a glimpse of Abu Dhabi’s hidden island gem at “Bu Tinah Island.” More surprises await you in zones like “Ring of Fire,” “Ocean,” and the “Flooded Forest.”

Participate in Immersive Experiences In addition to observing a wide range of fish, reptiles, amphibians, and coral species, you can take part in several marvelous and immersive experiences. Depending on your choice of ticket, you can access different levels of these experiences. A general admission ticket allows entry to the underwater creatures in all ten zones. The “Beyond the Glass” pass takes you behind the scenes and includes an amazing glass bridge walk. For a comprehensive experience, consider the “Bu Tinah Dhow” ticket, which covers everything in the general admission ticket, plus a spectacular glass-bottom boat tour.
