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 !

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in the South of France, we visited Marineland and found it a clean, beautiful enviromnent. All the animals are happy and cared for perfectly. It is fairly expensive to get in but drinks and snacks are reasonable (for the south of France!) We found there was plenty of time to get from... More

The whale, dolphin and sea lion shows are very well done so make sure you check the program times so you don't miss them. The killer whales actually seem quite happy and their dorsal fins are upright which I believe is a good sign of a reasonably happy and healthy whale. The polar bear enclosure includes a glass walled pool... More

Nice clean park with friendly staff. Shows were great but need to arrive in early to get a decent seat. We also booked our two children onto the Meet the Sea Lions, which was a huge mistake. We paid 78 Euros for them to spent 10 mins with a group of 6 others meeting a lone sea lion. During which... More

The killer whale show brought in the crowds but we loved the dolphin show. Lots to see and do for all ages but especially great entertainment if traveling with children.

Please think twice before going! Orcas and dolphins are beautiful intelligent creatures and should be left in the wild. Watch "blackfish the movie" and learn about Tilikum, who was taken from his mother when he was two and treated so badly he became psychotic. Orcas need to be with their families and swim huge distances each day. Not stuck in... More

A 'must visit' if you are in the South of France with Children! There is plenty to see and do here and it is good value for money for all ages.The food and drink areas are good value or you can take your own picnic. The dolphin and seal shows are good entertainment . It is also across the road... More

I don't know why anyone would want to contribute to this whale prison. Boycott this horrible jail for wild animals. I cannot believe that human beings can pay to go to this park and not feel even slightly guilty for such beautiful WILD mammals being stuck in a tank, forced to perform to be fed, have their young taken away...
