Marineland Antibes

The Marineland Antibes is known for its great shows and educational activities. In addition to giving visitors an unforgettable experience, the park’s mission is to pass on knowledge about the world of animals and how we can protect and preserve their species for the future.

With an area of more than 25 acres, Marineland in Antibes is the largest of its kind in all of Europe.

Experiences for the whole family

With as many as five parks in the park, there is plenty to employ an experience-hungry family.

  1. Marineland with all its sea animals
  2. Aquaplash – a giant water park
  3. Adventure Golf – three mini golf courses in company with dinosaurs, among other things 
  4. Children’s island – here children can frolic and get up close and learn about the animals
  5. Lagoon – private beach for relaxation and the opportunity to swim close to dolphins

Experiences that stand out: Orcas, dolphins and Boris and Laska.
Although Marineland Antibes is in itself a very special experience, there are still some I would like to highlight. They are to me the essence of this magical place.

Especially two shows and an entertaining feeding made an impression on me.

The dolphin show with the palm trees and the Mediterranean in the background made the experience of these amazing animals burn into my memory.

Next, I was almost overwhelmed by experiencing the Orca show. Seeing these giant sea creatures frolic in the huge 80 meter long pool with 40 million liters of water is impressive. The highlight was getting really close as the orcas were fed on the pool edge. WOW!

And do not miss the entertaining feeding of the sea lions Boris & Laska – the largest sea lions of its kind in the world.

Finally, I will mention the Shark Tunnel and the water slides

Shark Tunnel allows you to become familiar with different shark species (bull sharks, gray sharks and nurse sharks). An emotional moment for a unique face to face with the sea’s sharp teeth, in the heart of a 30 meter long tunnel that runs through a giant aquarium of two million liters of water!

Aquasplash offers more than fifteen giant water slides and swimming pools for both big and small children. This is a true eldorado for the kids and the number of visits of more than 180,000 annual visits alone testifies to its popularity.
