Oceanographic is a must see if you are in Valencia, Spain.
It is the largest aquarium complex in Europe, with a surface of 110,000 square metres and includes a 26,000,000-litre dolphinarium and a 7,000,000-litre ocean tank with sharks, rays and other fish.
The park is divided into ten areas, including Mediterranean habitats, the Arctic, the islands, the tropical seas, the temperate seas and the Red Sea.
There are 45,000 animals of 500 different species including fish, mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates — amongst these are sharks, penguins, dolphins, sea lions, walruses, beluga whales, and more — all inhabiting nine underwater towers. Each tower is structured in two levels and represent the major ecosystems of the planet.
We went there during the “Las Noches” special – so we had a reduced price from 20:00 until midnight. I do recommend going there during the evening because it cools off a little. The nighttime dolphin multimedia show was phenomenal with music, dance, lights and interaction with the dolphins. The park is open till midnight during summer time which is very good!.
There is a large subterranean park inside the compound so parking is easy. Unfortunately, the food variety is very poor and expensive. Tickets are also expensive.
A good but expensive summer night in the south of Spain!.
