Ocearium du Croisic, Le Croisic

4.1
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Le Croisic
At Ocearium du Croisic, the world’s marine creatures glide and sprint through their watery environments. Walk through the underwater tunnel and feel as if you’ve become part of the aquamarine paradise, which is inhabited by exotic fish, rays, and sharks. Then, if you just can’t get enough of those sharp-toothed predators, visit the Australian Shark exhibit. A million liter (264,172 gal) tank is home to these massive kings of the sea. The penguin exhibit offers an amusing counterpoint; in a predator-free environment, watch the tuxedoed birds slide, flap, and play with each other and--if you’re lucky--you.

  • We visited the Aquarium on 14 September to deal with on a gloomy day with a little of 2 years. Without great expectations, we were very pleasantly surprised by this visit. The site is small but is very well done, with many explanations, games and some animations (taste penguins, taste in the tunnel). The Oceanarium also boasts decorated according to themes, a real effort having been made on this side here. Our little loved, all being its size and unlike a zoo, the fish are moving constantly. He can sneak in places specially designed for young kids. Note that there are elevators everywhere for the PMR and strollers, which is significant. It takes 2 hours to go around taking relatively his time. Single point negative but expected due to the cost of managing such a complex, 14.50 euros entry price.

  • A kid on a human scale, if one can say! A new basin to rays! A moment of relaxation with the children. The Oceanarium n is not very big, but you can stay there 2 h in you stopping and taking time. Outdoor pool with a manchots.boutique memory at the end of visit. A bit expensive for a small complex, but attractive rates for the year, quickly pays off if you go there at least 2 times per year!

  • Went primarily on the basis I thought they had bull sharks!!! I don't think they did, but they have plenty of everything. From tiny fish to big sharks and everything in between. Got real busy in the afternoon. We arrived approx 2pm and was ok. By 4pm it was rammed. Free parking. Didn't see any catering, but we took our own food. Nice location too.
  • Great aquarium in Le Croisic, good for small groups. Different kinds of sharks, Pacific's skate fish, turtles and exotic fish. There is also an underwater tunnel so you can feel like swimming with the sea life.
  • A bit disappointed by the size of the place but the sharks' and rays' aquariums are great !
  • Love this place and so do the kids
  • I liked this place as a kid and still do. It got bigger and more interesting but it's still the one thing I always have seen in it - a fantastic window to a wonderful world beyond the surface.
