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.

  • Passionate about underwater life, I went to visit this place by pure leisure. I enjoyed this visit, information on the different species were quite full, and according to what I could follow, interesting tours. However, I was a little disappointed in seeing that announced species were not present, which to me shows a lack of updated posters and a lack of professionalism. I think that some species could have a little more room, but overall, the animals seemed to be well cared for. This visit was nice but not amazing.

  • There are many species, especially stingrays and sharks; only downside: it was a rainy day so everyone came, and they let in everyone, so difficult to move around and see some basins, or so we must fight to see something... The basin with big sharks is still impressive.

  • Very nice discovery, wonder of children on all the activities shown. A specific point with the meal of the penguins.

  • 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.
