Experience

The Oceanogràfic of Valencia offers you a unique and exclusive experience… go behind the scenes of the biggest aquarium in Europe to get to know it.

Your diving experience will start with the fish kitchen, where food is prepared every day for more than 15,000 animals of the 500 different species that live in various marine tanks.

In the quarantine area, you can know firsthand baby sea horses, or the new sharks that are waiting to be housed in exhibition tanks. You will also learn how all the water that comes straight from the sea every day, 960,000 litres, is filtered to be monitored to ensure animals’ health.

If you like intense sensations, here’s an adventure for you: walk over the sharks tunnel with dozens of dogfish at your feet.

Come and dive in the marine adventure!
