Oceanografic Valencia highlights

To help animals adapt to their natural living conditions, Oceanografic has set up various marine ecosystems. These habitats have been designed to best represent the environments the animals’ lineage has adapted to. Oceanografic is home to about 15 different habitats and here’s a deeper look into a few:

Dolphinarium

This Valencia aquarium boasts Europe’s largest dolphinarium with a seating capacity of 1,500 guests, and is home to the Bottlenose Dolphins. At the dolphinarium, research and observation are carried out regularly for their protection and conservation, as well as to study and exhibit dolphins’ biology, behavior, and reproduction manner. 

Oceans

The Oceans habitat is designed with two towers that are connected by a tunnel. With a water capacity of about 6000m³, Oceans is home to unique creatures like Angel Sharks, Blackchin Guitarfish, Grey Reef Sharks, Sand Tiger Sharks, Bull Rays, Sawfish, and many more.

Temperate and Tropical

Some of the greatest biodiversity on Earth can be found in warm tropical waters, averaging surface water temperatures of 25º C. These waters have long fascinated researchers. Keep an eye out for Clownfish, Giant Spider Crabs, seals, Green Moray Eels, Surgeonfish, Puffer Fish, Swell Sharks, Leopard Sharks, and many more.

Mediterranean

Though occupying smaller space in the middle of the world’s oceans and seas, the Mediterranean waters are a captivating ground for rare biodiversity. In this habitat, you can see common octopus, spiny lobsters, dreamfish, sea bass, Mediterranean barracuda, pearly razorfish, spotted catshark, dogfish, undulate rays, and many more.

Antarctic

The mysterious continent of Antarctica has been a subject of intrigue for decades. To mimic the continent, Oceanografic’s Antarctica habitat is completely covered with ice and snow throughout the year. The Antarctica habitat at Oceanografic is home to the Gentoo Penguins, flightless birds that thrive in such conditions.

Arctic

Oceanografic’s Arctic habitat is divided into two levels: the first level provides a bird’s eye view of the ice-filled ecosystem, while the second level brings you face-to-face with the animals. Standing at about 12 meters in height, one can expect to find the captivating Beluga Whale family swimming around in this habitat.

Crocodile Preserve

The interesting thing about the Crocodile Preserve habitat is that it has been designed to allow easy nesting of these reptiles. This habitat has been installed on the central inlet in a lake within the premises. Here, one can expect to find the Slender-snouted Crocodiles gently resting in their natural environment.

Wetlands/Aviary

The Wetlands/Aviary habitat is a massive sphere, standing at about 26 m in height. It has been created in such a way so as to accommodate animals and birds native to the Mediterranean Marshlands and the American Mangrove. Look out for the Eurasian Spoonbills, Glossy Ibis, and more. 

Islands

The Islands is another outdoor installation at Oceanografic, designed so as to best represent the South American coast. This is where researchers study the behavior of animals like sea lions, walruses, and seals. All these animals can be identified with a signature trait: the wide, flat legs that they use for movement.

Lakes

Oceanogràfic has a living lake with diverse aquatic birds, including red-crested pochard, common shelduck, and whooper swan. Various bird species visit year-round from Albufera Natural Park and the former Turia River bed.

Jellyfish

Oceanografic prides itself on being home to the largest jellyfish exhibit in Europe. All of these species are housed in different tanks and aquariums across the premises, like in the Access Building. Look out for the Barrel Jellyfish, Common Jellyfish, Flame Jellyfish, Japanese Sea Nettle, Mauve Stinger, and many more.

Mysteries of the Sea

True to its name, the Mysteries of the Sea habitat attempts to uncover some secrets of the Earth’s waters. Divided into six ‘jewels’ or aquariums, nothing can prepare you for the tiny, unique, brightly-colored inhabitants here. One can identify 16 species, including the Big-belly Seahorse, Peacock Mantis Shrimp, Boxfish, and more.

Access Building

Your first impression of what Oceanografic has in store for you lies in the Access Building, the entrance. The aquarium here has been created to represent the shallow, sandy waters and temperate waters that species like Shovelhead Sharks, Carpet Sharks, Common Jellyfish, and more, call home.  

Oceanic Islands

This habitat explores the ecosystem of some of the most remote corners of our planet. A walk through the Oceanic Islands covers five areas, each representing a different part of Earth. Guests can learn about the evolution of species here and find animals like the Aldabra Giant Tortoise, Hawaiian Goose, and more.

Mediterranean Tortoise

A unique aspect of the Mediterranean Tortoise habitat is that it has been created with the intention of preserving three endangered species: the Cartagena Rockrose plant, the spur-thighed Testudo Graec tortoise, and the Hermann Tortoise. The installation accurately represents a typical Mediterranean ecosystem.
