The new augmented reality experience

Grand Large

Meet the giants of the High Seas.

Grand Large :

An immersive, sensorial and spectacular experience

Set out to discover the high seas, so little-known and inaccessible, and meet the majestic animals that inhabit it, thanks to an augmented reality system – unique in the world – in one of Nausicaá’s most fascinating spaces: The Great Bay with its 100 sq.m window! Wearing a set of Microsoft HoloLens 2 smart glasses that augment your vision thanks to animal holograms with unrivalled definition, live an immersive, sensorial and spectacular experience in the heart of Nausicaá.

Emotions guaranteed for out-of-the-ordinary encounters.

The leatherback turtle will accompany you on your journey, along with breathtaking species such as the whale shark, lion's mane jellyfish, Bryde's whale, tursiops dolphin, sailfish and sunfish.

All these animals appear virtually in augmented reality during the Grand Large experience.
