Voyage to the bottom of the sea

The Gipuzkoa premises receiving more visits is no less than... the Aquarium. The infinite series of surprises is irresistible: the skeleton of a whale, an oceanarium with thousands of fish, a tactile aquarium, an 18-metre long mangrove swamp with tropical species...

Aquarium

Two bull sharks with their own names, Txuri and Kontxita, are the most famous neighbours of a centre inhabited by more than 5,000 living beings. Tropical fishes, Cantabrian Sea species, dangerous fishes, or jellyfishes occupy different thematic aquariums. Nevertheless, since the 1998 enlargement of the Aquarium, the star is the big oceanarium, with almost two million litres of water. From the acrylic tunnel crossing the aquarium, we can observe how sharks, rays and an endless number of species live and eat, as we would do at the bottom of the sea.
Another charm of this place is an amazing mangrove with clean water, crossed by a tunnel, which will surely delight children. It was installed in 2008, when the maritime museum finished the updating of its facilities and incorporated new aquariums with curious and colourful fish.
The real skeleton of an eleven-metre long whale, the last one captured in the Gipuzkoa coast, still presides the access to this submarine voyage.
