"Marine Park 30 minutes from Cannes" Cannes Things to Do Tip by Cathy24

Cannes Things to Do: 226 reviews and 421 photos


When we got off our cruise we passed a little tourist information hut at the pier and saw a flyer for the Marinepark. It is situated in Biot - four stops on the train and only took 30 minutes to get to as it is 5 minutes from the train station in Biot to the park by foot. This is not only a marine park but also has crazy golf, a water park with loads of slides and also a wild west park so you could easily spend a day there. Plus on the other side of the road from the train station there is a nice little beach.

The marinepark cost ?35 (doesnt include adminission into the other parks) which i thought was a bit steep and unfortunately we only had about 2 hours to spend there and we weren't in time for any of the whale, dolphin or sealion shows so if you are going make sure you have about 4 or 5 hours to spend there.

There was an underwater tunnel where you could see sharks and turtles, a penguin enclosure, sealion enclosure, piranhas and dolphin pool where even if you couldnt see a show you could still watch them playing. Best of all you can go and watch the killer whales in the big pools on the tiered seating where the shows are held so even though initially we were disappointed to miss the shows and didnt think we would see the whales, we were able to spend ages watching them play (and try to attack a seagull - lol).

It was a really nice day and despite the cost it is worth going to if you are in Cannes for a few days. We didnt go to the water park, etc but they looked really good. It only costs about ?2 on the train to get there and there are return trains to Cannes very frequently.
