Get additional infoAn audio guide is available to rent for €3.70 (or €5 for two), and it’s helpful to have, guiding you around the exhibits and giving you extra information. You can rent a guide in Spanish, Valencian, English, French, German, Italian, or Russian.
Mind the climateMake sure to dress appropriately for the weather, especially in summer. There are lots of indoor areas to hide in if it rains, but in the hot Spanish summers, you’ll want sunglasses, sunscreen, and a hat to prevent sunburn or heatstroke.
Combination offersIf you’re also planning to visit the spectacular Museu de les Ciències in the City of Arts and Sciences then you can save money by buying a combo-ticket.

L'Oceanogràfic: excursion into the underwater world

The largest aquarium complex in all of Europe, with 45,000 animals from 500 species.

Marine animals and amphibians, birds and mammals

The inhabitants here include penguins, sharks, beluga whales, sea lions, flamingos, and turtles, along with many different fish and amphibians. The beluga whales are a very special experience of Oceanogràfic: they are the only family that lives in an aquarium. In 2016, the first baby beluga whale in Europe, Kylu, was born here. Research on beluga whales allows deeper insights into ways to protect and conserve these animals in the wild as well.

Guided Tours behind the scenes

If you want to learn more about the animals and their care, book a guided tour behind the scenes: This costs €12 per person, lasts 90 minutes and you also see the divers' area, the quarantine area and the kitchen.

Feedings and shows

It is possible to be present at the feedings, which take place several times a day. Information about the feeding times is provided for visitors right at the entrance. Especially the dolphin show is worth seeing, especially for children! Please do not feed the animals on your own! This can lead to serious health problems.

For families with children

The tanks are designed so that even small children can easily see inside them.

Children can usually get a lot out of a visit to L'Oceanogràfic. They enjoy recognizing all the different animals and maybe seeing the dolphin show. There are also two playgrounds where kids can let off steam. The 4D films on offer are not suitable or permitted for children under the age of 4. This should be considered when buying the tickets.
