En ouvrant les portes du Parc antibois, le Comte se dote d'une mission bien precise : transmettre sa passion pour le monde marin a un large public afin de lui faire decouvrir cet univers fascinant.Au fil du temps, Marineland diversifie son offre et enrichit son espace avec l'ouverture de plusieurs parcs thematiques : La Ferme du Far West, Adventure Golf et Aquasplash. Depuis juillet 2006, l'Espace Marineland fait partie du groupe espagnol Parques Reunidos : leader europeen sur le segment des parcs animaliers et aquatiques. L'Espace Marineland vous invite a la rencontre du monde marin : a travers ses spectacles, mais aussi ses expositions et animations pedagogiques, c'est la richesse de la faune marine qui est devoilee. Dauphins, orques, otaries, manchots, requins... pres de 35 especes evoluent dans notre Parc pour vous eblouir le temps d'une visite forte en emotion !La preservation des animaux, appelee plus generalement la conservation des especes, est aussi le message de fond que le parc cherche a promouvoir aupres de ses visiteurs. La Fondation Marineland, creee en 2011, renforce cet engagement. Les naissances que nous avons regulierement sur le Parc, temoignent egalement de cet objectif essentiel pour un parc animalier.En 2013 ce sont des bebes otaries et des bebes manchots qui ont vu le jour !En 2014 nous esperons encore d'autres naissances et surprises a vous faire vivre et partager !Nos trois autres Parcs : Aquasplash ouvert en juin, Kids Island et Adventure Golf toute l'annee, vous permettent aussi de diversifi er votre visite a l'Espace Marineland ! Des jeux aquatiques aux parcours de mini-golf, en passant par l'univers de Kids Island ou les lemuriens et autres activites vous attendent: vous variez les univers et les plaisirs !Vous etes chaque annee nombreux a venir sur nos Parcs et nous vous en remercions, nos equipes restent a votre disposition pour repondre toujours au mieux a vos attentes de visite.Decouvrez toutes l'actualite de Marineland sur facebook et profitez de reportages complets et inedits grace a la web TV Marineland ! « less

We have never seen whales or dolphins before (come from Britain) we can't afford a two week trip to Orlando for sea world so my son picked up a leaflet for marieland while on holiday last week, it looked okay so we headed off. We went on April 9th so unfortunately the splash park was shut as were the food... More

I have driven past this place and I would never willingly spend money to visit. Orca whales, dolphins and other species kept in captivity under the most cruel and unnatural conditions to generate profits by performing some lame circus hoops. There is absolutely nothing educational about this. My heart goes out to those beautiful animals being exploited for selfish human... More

Disgraceful, animals are starved and made to perform. Most have been stolen from the wild and witnessed their families slaughtered in Taiji. Orcas in pools far to small, no stimulation, made to perform, kept hungry! Cruel, cruel cruel and unacceptable

For those in europe who haven't the luck to go in Miami to visit the first Marineland park, come in Antibes, it's a really good one with nice shows especially for children.

We visited Maineland in juli 2013. The whole family enjoyed Marineland enormously. Especially the dolphin, orca and seal shows. Simply incredible. These shows superseeded all other animal shows we have seen before. A visit to the park easily consumes a full day. My young daughter and son also took advantage of the opportunity to go horsebakriding which they both enjoyed.... More

Marineland gives the family a lot of fun and education on the sea life around the world. Did you know there is an exchange program for dolphins with Harderwijk in the Netherlands?

I felt sick watching these 'wild' creatures be anything but wild. Anyone thinking of visiting should watch The Cove first - whilst I'm sure there are lots of good people working here, how can they justify keeping Killer Whales/Dolphins/Polar Bears etc in tanks?There's no justification for it. I'm ashamed that I went - and hope that others won't support places... More

We went here in November and even though it's quiet that time of year, the tickets were still full price (€38 for adults and €30 for kids). As we didn't have a car,we went there by train from Nice and it was confusing, as the website says it's in Antibes but you actually need to get the train to Biot.... More

We spent an autumn day there with our 2 children of 3 and 6 years. Some of the inclosures seem a little small for the animals, but over all the children loved it. We went to a teaching sea lion show, where the "teachers" only spoke french. The dolphin and orca shows are spectacular. The other parcs were closed the... More
