From pool to pool, the kids will discover the innumerable fish and other species of the Atlantic coast and the Mediterranean Sea, plus a host of surprising sea life they’ve probably never seen before: the great barracuda from the Java Sea; the guitarfish, a ray that lives in the Celebes Sea; or the leopard shark from the Pacific. A dazzling display certain to impress all the family! You can even join in the activities offered by the Aquarium and included in your entry ticket. Some, such as the hands-on workshop to discover the marine animals, have been specially designed for children!
Visit the Vendée Aquarium as a couple
To cut yourselves off from the world, or just to take a break from the beach, the Vendée Aquarium makes a fabulous outing for the two of you. With its 500 species from all around the world, it offers plenty to marvel at, even for grown-ups!
The visit is particularly complete and offers a chance to find out more about the remarkable lives of the underwater creatures. For example, you’ll be able to get to know the bluestreak cleaner wrasse, a tropical fish whose mission is to remove the parasites from all the inhabitants of the coral reef! If you’re feeling brave why not take part in an interactive shark presentation and discover that they are really not as formidable as they seem. Finally, the visit comes to an end in the ocean depths, the realm of luminescence. Enjoy your visit!
