Located on the French Riviera, Europe's largest marine theme park promises entertainment for the whole family. We bet you've already dreamed of going out to meet marine mammals. It's a must-see during your stay on the French Riviera ! We will take you on a discovery tour of this unique park in the world and inform you about everything you need to know to organise your visit to Marineland.

PLAN YOUR VISIT TO MARINELAND ANTIBES

Orcas, polar bears, dolphins, sea lions, seals, penguins, Caribbean flamingos, sharks, rays, turtles... At the Marineland Park of Antibes you will meet more than 3000 different species. It is a discovery that will take you to the 4 corners of the planet and fascinate you ! 

The Marineland Park was created in 1970 by Roland de la Poype. From the beginning, the main objective was to make the marine world known to as many people as possible.Today Marineland is a success which fascinates thousands of visitors with its different types of animals including fish, reptiles, mammals and birds.

A PARK THAT WORKS FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE MARINE WORLD

In addition, Marineland is an important local player: it participates in several marine animal conservation programmes and is one of the most visited zoological establishments in France. The park has also set up a conservation research centre to study and learn more about the marine world. Finally, it is also important to note that certain professionals at Marineland Park are authorised to intervene in the event of the stranding of certain marine animals. 

The park also has an association called the "Marineland Association". For example, in 2017 it opened a care and rehabilitation centre for turtles. Turtles are then taken in charge and cared for by Marineland's carers and could not be cared for without the existence of this association. The Marineland association is therefore a great way to raise awareness of the marine environment and to try to preserve it.  

WANT TO MEET DOLPHINS OR MAMMALS?

The park offers many activities in addition to your classic visit. For example, you can organise a meeting with dolphins at Marineland, interact with them and discover them in their environment, under the eyes of a dolphin keeper who will make you experience a magical moment.

Dolphins are often the favourites animals during a visit to Marineland. The park has 12 dolphins: the oldest Sharky, a male born in 1980 while the youngest Ollie is a female born in 2020. An encounter with dolphins costs 70€ per person at Marineland.

Killer whales are mammals that are also very popular with visitors. Marineland is the only French park to present killer whales to the general public, which makes it a unique park on a national level but also on a European level. The park has 4 killer whales named Inouk, Wikie, Moana and Keijo. They live and evolve in a set of 5 basins filled with natural sea water and it is possible to discover and meet them during the various performances. It will cost €69 per person to experience a unique encounter with these mammals.

The other animals of the park people really love are polar bears. There are two polar bears at Marineland: Rasputin and Flocke, born in 2006 and 2007 in Europe.

However, be careful about the time of year you visit the park. Indeed, some of the catering points are only open in high season during the summer. It is therefore important to check which ones are open when you arrive in the park. 

If you wish to bring your own picnic, that is also possible! However, it will be forbidden to eat it in the park.

DISCOVER AN EXCEPTIONAL REGION

Marineland has an exceptional location and it would be a pity not to take advantage of the many assets of the region when visiting the park. 

Antibes, where the park is located, is a city where the lifestyle is incomparable. Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean, its old town will delight you between its historical heritage and its Provencal market. Nature will also fill you with wonder and for this, we obviously recommend a stroll to the Cap d'Antibes. 

Antibes is also a good starting point to discover the cities of Nice and Cannes. A little more lively and tumultuous, these two cities are very different from each other, but are nevertheless a must if you have time after your visit to Marineland. 

Finally, we recommend that you go to the hinterland of Nice to discover the charm of Provence. Vence, for example, will delight you for its charm and tranquillity.
