Cars & Passengers

Situated in a former casino, Nausicaa is a wonderful place to learn about the seas, man’s relationship with them and the creatures that call them home. The national sea centre aims to help raise public awareness on ocean-related issues and takes you on a wonderful tour of some of the most beautiful and amazing sea creatures and their enviornments on our planet. 

 
Visit the various aquariums and see the huge shark tank, marvel at the colourful beauty of the fish darting around the tropical lagoon, 
 
Various aquariums show off a stunning array of colourful tropical fish, marine mammal, get up close and personal with rays and in the touch pool, meet the caimans and piranhas in the submerged forest swamp, laugh at the antics of the penguins on a replica of the South African shoreline and walk through the submerged tunnal alongside the Californian sea lions. 
 
Exhibitions, expert presentation and films also help to bring the world of the oceans to life before your eyes.
 
Getting there
 
Heading to the aquarium at Nausicaa to see the sharks, rays and California sea lions for yourself is easy if you take the car on the ferry to France because Boulogne-sur-Mer is only around 30 minutes by car from Calais.
