Our guide to The Lost Chambers Aquarium at Atlantis The Palm
Discover the legend of the Lost City of Atlantis at the amazing Lost Chambers where, amid a maze of underwater halls and tunnels, you’ll come face to face with the incredible 65,000 marine animals of Atlantis. As you make your way through the 10 various themed chambers of what was once the world’s most advanced civilisation you will find over 21 exhibits with fish from all over the world flourishing in this magnificent environment. Sharks, stingrays, piranhas, lobsters and the tiniest of seahorses are just some of the creatures you'll come face-to-fin with in this spellbinding underwater world.
The eerily lazy movements of the jellyfish are almost hypnotising, while the piranha enclosure offers a glimpse of an altogether scarier beastie. For a hands-on experience be sure to visit the touch pools where you can pick up a starfish or caress a sea cucumber. Other highlights include the giant catfish in the Seven Sages Chamber and the colour-changing giant cuttlefish in the Abyss Room. Discover this lost world at your own pace or join one of the Navigators for a walk through the mysterious maze of underground passageways, tunnels and underwater vistas.
The Ambassador Lagoon is an 11 million litre, 10-metre-deep, marine habitat and underwater exhibit home to 250 species of marine life with a viewing panel looking directly into the mystical ruins of Atlantis. This habitat focuses on marine life found in the local waters of the Arabian Gulf, including golden trevally, cobias, crescent angelfish and a variety of sharks and rays. Here, you can watch the sea life peacefully while learning about fish species and ocean preservation.
