Activity with commentary in French

Behind the scene tour (in french only)

Spend an exceptional hour witnessing what goes on behind the scenes every day between the aquariological handlers and the fish of the High Seas.

What goes on behind the scenes of the High Seas tank?

You'll discover the handlers' beach, the fish kitchens that would be worthy of a gourmet restaurant, the aquariological reserves and you'll even have access to the filtering cathedral of the High Seas tank.

There's always something going on in the High Seas tank, and you may even get the chance to see the rays or sharks being fed.

A member of the activity team will be on hand to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the team of handlers.

Learn all about the technical aspects and technological prowess of this 10,000 m3 tank, with its impressive dimensions and many other surprises.
