Discover Océarium du Croisic France

Created in 1992, the Ocearium aims at presenting the various species living in the Atlantic Ocean and by the coasts of France.
Some 200 species live in perfect tranquillity in the tanks of the Ocearium, notably in an aquarium/tunnel filled with 300,000 litres of natural sea water (built in the USA, it is also the first of its kind in Europe).
The Ocearium is divided into several sections where you will see: sandbar, grey nurse, and blacktip reef sharks (in an 18x14m aquarium containing 1 million litres of water at a temperature of 25 °C); African penguins on their islet; the diversity of British Columbia's wildlife, thanks to 'Vancouver Island' lodge; and the wildlife found on the coral reefs in the Caribbean, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia.
Children will undoubtedly be delighted with the 'Touch Pool', where they can put their hands in the water and touch the starfish and hermit crabs!
Opening times: from 29th January to 31st May, 10:00am to 12:00pm and 2:00pm to 6:00pm
June, July, August: 10:00am to 7:00pm
