Explore the most beautiful underwater landscapes on earth surrounded by sharks and giant turtles at the Saint-Malo Grand Aquarium.
The aquarium, located in one of France's most visited tourist resorts, is divided into nine themed areas. Together with the fictional marine explorer Jean Kermalo, you will take a journey from the ice seas to the tropical seas of the earth and discover more than 6,000 different marine creatures. Be captivated by giant Japanese crabs, piranhas, jellyfish, seahorses and barracudas! Even the smallest creatures like phytoplankton and zooplankton are not forgotten. So you will get to know the sea as a natural system consisting of many different ecological components in flora and fauna.
Unique experiences for the whole family
A highlight for the little ones is the yellow submarine Nautibus, which invites you to play and explore in the depths of the ocean. The so-called "Bassin tactile" - a sea water pool where you can touch and feel fish and starfish - provides spectacular experiences. A very special highlight is the shark pool "L'anneau des requins". The 360-degree pool, in which sharks up to three metres long swim past you in close proximity, gives you goose bumps. If you want, you can even spend a whole night with the sharks! Thrills are guaranteed during the extraordinary night tour.
