  • Descriptions

    Unique in Europe! Meet up just past the Orca Fjord, to discover these black and white sea giants as you've never seen them before! Up close and personal! The killer whale keeper team awaits you for a VIP encounter in a small group (10 people maximum) to learn more about their exceptional skills. During a twenty-minute session, the animal keepers will give you detailed information on their anatomy and behaviour.

    This marine mammal, which is also called the orca, is a member of the dolphin family but quickly grows to more than 2 tonnes in weight! The Killer Whale, or Orca, has about fifty identical teeth but they are not used to chew their prey. These giants' elaborate hunting techniques have earned them the name Killer Whale, yet they love ice cubes and being petted by their keepers. They have a very complex social system, in which the females are in charge, and a very rich communication system, ranging from vocalisations to bellowing. You will learn that although it is at the top of the ocean food chain, the killer whale is also endangered by human activity (such as pollution, overfishing, disturbance, etc.).
