Come and discover one of France’s largest aquariums, with 600 different underwater species from seas all over the world!
Just 20 minutes from the Les Chevrets campsite, the Grand Aquarium de Saint Malo is located at the entrance to the corsair city, and is designed to share emotions with the whole family, from the youngest to the oldest.
A visit to the aquarium is based on a fictional story about Jean Kermalo, an explorer from Saint Malo, who sets off on a world tour of the oceans. The exploration of underwater worlds is divided into 9 universes. Highlights include the famous Ring of the Seas or 360-degree circular tank, home to various species of shark, as well as a touch tank where you can come into contact with carp, stingrays, starfish and dogfish.
You can also dive aboard the Nautilus, a 5-person mini-submersible, where you can watch blacktip sharks, leopard rays and napoleon fish from your portholes. With the Nautilus, you’re in for a real diving experience!
Even better, the Grand Aquarium also offers you an unforgettable dive into the abyss! Thanks to the Abyssal Descender, the world’s only descent simulator, you can plunge for a few minutes into the abyss to discover some surprising species!
Last but not least, new for 2019, the Grand Aquarium opens a new universe with the Fantastic Animals, but also offers new species (nurse shark, albino grouper, albino axolotl, elephant fish, opistognathus, zebra syngnathus, splendid garden eel…) and a new exhibition starting in April (legends of the sea in Brittany and the world’s oceans).
Another good reason to visit the Aquarium is its commitment to preserving our blue planet. Together with the World Ocean Network, the Grand Aquarium will be celebrating World Oceans Day on June 8!
