Junior and Senior Aquarist

Now your children can get a fascinating glimpse behind-the-scenes at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo.

Our experienced Aquarists are responsible for maintaining the tanks and exhibits, preparing meals, participating in education programs, monitoring animals’ health and breeding, and much more. For those wishing to learn more about the role and responsibilities of an aquarist, we have created two exciting experiences:

Senior Aquarist

Discover if your child is a marine biologist in the making by getting him/her to participate in the Behind-the-Scenes Tour at the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. Your adventurous flippers will experience cage snorkelling and the exciting close encounter with thousands of aquatic animals. They will also get to meet an Aquarist, watch a shark feeding, help out in feeding animals, ride on a Glass-Bottom Boat and so much more. An adventure they will never forget.

Junior Aquarist

The Junior Aquarist camp is perfect for anyone eager to learn more about Aquarist responsibilities. From maintaining aquatic exhibits to caring for the animals and checking the water quality, this is the best camp for someone who wants to live “a day in the life” of a Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo Aquarist. You will even get a chance to feed some of the animals in the Underwater Zoo.


Choose from two fun-packed experiences and discover if your child is a Marine Biologist in the making.
