The Acquario “Le Navi” in Cattolica is the biggest aquarium of the Adriatic Sea and it is the second aquarium in Italy, after the Acquario di Genova. It was inaugurated in 2000 and it is made up of 4 pavilions. It was created during the renovation of an old marine settlement of the 30s. Today, inside the aquarium you can have extraordinary encounters with thousands of marine animals. The indoor itinerary: 100 exhibition tanks and 3.000 specimens.
The visit in the aquarium is divided into 4 itineraries: blue, yellow, green and purple.
The blue itinerary tells you the story of the Planet Earth and its evolution.Il percorso Through the yellow itinerary you can discover the watercourses with caiman puppies and otters inside.
In the green itinerary you can discover the world of nature with its insects and reptiles.
The purple itinerary allows you to listen and see the Mediterranean and tropical species, which communicate with each other through their sounds. Through the footprints of the “Emperor Penguins”, this itinerary brings you to the South Pole and allows you to discover the life of this species.
Thanks to its educational importance, schools often propose the visit of this park by promoting and spreading the respect of the sea environment.
Kids love to call the various animals by their personal names:
The Humoldt PENGUINS are ALOO, KEEMA and MASALA, this kind of penguin is an endangered species hailing from the moderate coasts of Peru and Chile. The OTTERS are three sisters, called EVA, COSTANZA and MARTA and they are playful mammals which live in the swamps of mangroves and in the swamps area of freshwater. The BULL SHARKS BRIGITTE, SFRANGY and the whole family are the largest sharks in Italy and they live together with the NURSE SHARKS. In the touch pool you can find the WHIPTAIL STINGRAYS: they are flat sharks and the kids can stroke, but they have to pay attention to their mouth and tail, because these animals have a poisonous spine at the extremity of their tail, which is used for self-defense.
In the range of the itineraries there is also the DWARF CAIMAN of CUVIER, which is the smallest alligator in the world but it is also the most dangerous hailing from South America, where it lives in the flooded forests and in the ponds.
JELLYFISHES have stinging tentacles and 90% of their body is made up of water. MORAYS are similar to snakes, they have long and sharp teeth and they live among the rocks. The LEOPARD GECO is the funniest among reptiles, the “DART” FROG has poison inside him and it was used by the American indigenous to dip the tips of their blow darts. There is also BOA CONSTRICTOR, which grinds its preys and then swallows them.
