Aquariums and Zoos in Brittany, France

Aquarium Saint Malo

An outstanding aquarium that takes you on a journey below the waves, quiet literally in fact! The aquarium takes you on a tour through themed sections where you pass through the inside of pirate ships, wrecks and all! Then there is a ride in a submarine through the aquarium for a fish eye view - The shark section is breath taking, you're surrounded 360 degrees by fish, it's like being inside a fish tank looking out! (Our kids loved this aquarium - Well worth a visit!!!)
