The La Rochelle Aquarium, a large vessel made of wood and glass, presents over 10,000 marine creatures from the Atlantic, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and the Pacific in an original way, and its 65 pools recreate the environments of the species as faithfully as possible. Its numerous innovations include an amusing trip deep down in the ocean in a submarine, and the shark tank. The tiered seating makes the visit all the more enjoyable.
