Discover L'Océanographic Spain

Part of the City of Arts and Sciences, the Oceanogràfic is the largest aquarium in Europe, home to more than 1,500 marine species. The dolphin show, lasting 25 minutes, is very impressive indeed. Some children will even be lucky enough to be able to touch the dolphins during the show! Your visit will take you from Antarctica to Bermuda, via the Canary Islands. Some of the many species here include penguins, sea lions, seals, Beluga whales (white-coloured whales nicknamed 'sea canaries'), porpoises, giant crabs and sea turtles. Of course, there's also the aquarium's popular underwater corridor where visitors can watch sharks swim right over their heads - an experience not to be missed! You'll be able to see giant manta rays swimming alongside them. Over the Christmas period, there's even an underwater nativity scene here! The aquarium's underwater restaurant is open all year round if enjoying your meal in the company of countless multicoloured fish tickles your fancy; it's quite the unique experience! The aquarium also features a giant greenhouse under a huge white sphere, called the 'humedales' or humid zone, home to a number of bird species, including the scarlet ibis. Looking for something extra special? Visitors can actually spend the night in the corridor that runs under the shark tank, but make sure that you book in advance.
