Activities and feeding times
There’s always something happening in the aquarium
Playing with fish in the petting-pool, walking with penguins, hopping on the beach with mangrove frogfish, leaping out of water with a feeding Arowana... The Nausicaa experience is also a personal one. Your trip has unforgettable encounters and surprises that only nature can bring!
SOME OF OUR ACTIVITIES:
BE PART OF THE SEA LIONS’ TRAINING!
Don’t mistake it for a seal, it might get upset!
This inquisitive and capable creature from the Californian coast is happy to play with humans… as long as they’re willing to throw it a few mackerel! At Nausicaá, every activity is designed to improve the daily lives of our residents.
Nausicaá is at the cutting edge of medical training and has received several awards for its work.
LAGOON FISH FEEDING
Watch the living fireworks! On the lagoon, join the simultaneous feeding of the aquarium’s coral reef fish. Angelfish, surgeonfish, coralfish, cowfish, and batfish will show you how different species cooperate, and draw you to a ballet of 3,000 dancers!
THE TOUCH TANK
The meals of touch pool animals give you a chance to touch marine fauna. Ray, cod, turbot, and halibut gather in the pool, where they let you stroke them or swim to your hands for a caress! Another way of experiencing the sea.
ANOTHER LOOK AT THE SHARKS
The meals of the leopard sharks from Californian waters, or the larger sharks of the open sea aquarium gives visitors a chance to take a fresh look at the rulers of the sea and better understand their vital role in the oceans and the planet. This thrilling experience with the savages of the ocean is a must!
MEET THE PENGUINS
The feeding and care of penguins allow carers to play with these gentle animals while performing their daily grooming, a real moment of pleasure and communion with you. A tender encounter.
