Oceans

The underwater trip that this habitat offers crosses the Atlantic Ocean through a 35 metre tunnel connecting the Canary Islands with Bermuda.

The world’s oceans are large extensions of water which, despite containing few nutrients, are inhabited by animals capable of travelling thousands of kilometres to find food or mate. In open waters, only animals adapted to such hard conditions can survive. This aquarium consists of two underwater towers, connected by a 35 metre long tunnel, containing a unique underwater space inside the same tank. It is one of the largest aquariums in the world, with 6,000m³ of water.

The grey reef shark can migrate thousands of kilometres due to temperature changes in the water it inhabits and food availability.
