Shark Trainer Encounter

This family-friendly experience will educate guests about shark species as well as how the creatures are taken care of at Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo. The educational content will be all about their environment, feeding, and breeding habits while visitors also get to go behind the scenes in assisting the aquarium staff in training Bamboo Sharks and Leopard Sharks.

Submerged to about waist height in waterproof waders, visitors can get into the tank for a unique “trainer” experience and interact with the sharks.
