Home to more than 2700 species of aquatic life-sharks, rays, fish, and more, the BahrainAquarium provides an insight into the deepest realms. The aquarium, 17 meters tall and 7 meters wide stands along 4 floors of the Mall of Dilmunia and boasts being the first cylindrical aquarium of this scale inside a mall in the Middle East. 700,000 litres of seawater fills this cylindrical marvel which houses 85 species of marine life.
Children can enjoy an educational experience along with some fish feeding at the Aquarium. Divers-both certified and non-certified can immerse in an underwater experience and get up close to the marine animals in the Aquarium.
