2. Discover the exceptional measures


For your safety and that of the team, in addition to the rules of distancing, the Aquarium has put in place several measures which we invite you to consult.

Amongst the most important, wearing a mask is compulsory for adults and children from 11 years old and strongly recommended from 6 years old, fifteen or so hydroalcoholic gels are available at regular intervals and the frequency of cleaning of key areas is greatly increased.


A circuit and a direction of visit have also been marked out to avoid crossing paths and any backtracking is forbidden. Certain areas are closed off, for example, it is impossible to access the René Coutant amphitheatre.
