Enjoy a 5-minute video presentation on the Ocean Odyssey just after you enter the aquarium and then begin your journey into the depths of the Ocean.

Thanks to the latest interactive technology, you’ll have the opportunity to play with sea lions, get a close look at different sharks and discover how these mammals and fish live and in which parts of the world.
