Palma Aquarium is an excellent holiday attraction on the island of Mallorca, which has been popular among visitors for many years. Our facilities big enough for everyone to have fun and they meet the highest of quality standards. 

If you don't know what to do in Mallorca, a visit to our aquarium is an absolute must, as it offers a great experience for the whole family. We have a new adventure waiting for you: Shark Vision Boat, a boat with a glass bottom that has been specially designed to get a front-row view of the sharks that live at Palma Aquarium.

Discover the marine world on foot

Palma Aquarium has a huge aquarium tank with a great variety of specimens that inhabit the Mediterranean Sea as well as the tropical seas. Moreover, we also offer an impressive jungle with all kinds of plants, waterfalls, and trees. However, one of the most impressive attractions is the Big Blue, the deepest aquarium in Europe, where you can book several activities with sharks.

In fact, this large area always offers new activities and features that leave everyone who visits speechless. It is without a doubt one of the most entertaining activities in Mallorca that you shouldn't miss. In the Big Blue, you can watch the sharks being fed and you can even sail over the surface to catch an incredible view of these animals from a unique perspective.

The Big Blue is 9 meters deep and holds 3.5 million liters of salt water. It houses exactly 11 sharks of two different species: sand bar sharks and sand tiger sharks, which swim peacefully alongside other marine life that you will also be able to spot: Eagle rays, stingrays, stingrays, golden rays and amber rays.

The Shark Vision Boat is one of our newest attractions and offers 33-meter ride on a boat with a completely transparent bottom, with amazing views into the Big Blue. In this way, you can enjoy an extraordinary panorama with your family and discover every detail that the colorful marine world hides. If you are particularly enthusiastic about sharks, you can experience other activities with sharks, such as diving with sharks - a unique experience that you will not forget.

A ship with glass bottom

The Shark Vision Boat was built by a Mallorcan craftsman exclusively for Palma Aquarium. This boat sails across the impressive Big Blue to view the sharks in the aquarium from a new perspective. 

In order to obtain a completely safe and stable boat, capable of supporting the weight of a large family and offering an amazing view, its construction was pretty elaborate.

The Shark Vision Boat has no engine and does not need to be driven by rudders. It is simply tied to a rope with which our guides drive the boat. Thus, our guests can watch the sharks under the visitors' feet, as the bottom is completely transparent, without interrupting them.

Palma Aquarium's aim is to give you an authentic view of the sharks from a boat that offers you the greatest possible protection so that you can watch the sharks in peace without being afraid. The floor is transparent, so you will feel like you are on top of the sharks and get a realistic impression of their behavior and size. Everyone on board wears a life jacket, despite there being no risk. 

Please bear in mind, it is advisable to book the boat in advance so that you can enjoy this attraction as soon as you arrive at the park. There is an additional charge to the entrance fee for this activity.

Be closer to sharks than ever before

Palma Aquarium is one of the most incredible attractions in Europe. The Shark Vision Boat allows you to observe sharks in their natural habitat from a boat and its transparent floor allows you to sail and see the entire surface of the aquarium. We also offer you the possibility of a sleepover with sharks, an activity suitable for the bravest children between 5 and 12 years old.  

On this boat, you will be able to observe the real life of eleven sharks in their natural habitats, as if you were one of them. You will be absorbed into their world and feel closer to sharks than ever before.

Not only can you see them up close and sleep next to them, but now you can also dive with sharks and swim in one of the largest shark tanks in Europe. As we have already explained, the Big Blue is a tank with 6 sand tigers and 4 sand bar sharks, and you will have the opportunity to swim with them and see how they move and behave in this marine space. You are bound to be fascinated!

Get to know our sharks

At Palma Aquarium you will find four species of sharks. Would you like to get to know them better before you go swimming with them?

  • The sand tiger shark, or Carcharias taurus, is no less than a close relative of the famous great white shark and, despite what its name may imply, is not related to the tiger shark. It differs from all other shark species in that it is the only one capable of swallowing air and storing it in its stomach for greater buoyancy, which means it requires less energy. They can reach up to 3 metres in length and weigh up to150 kilos. One of their main features is their grey-brown body with reddish-brown spots and their pointed, cone-shaped head.

  • The sandbar shark, brown shark or Carcharhinus plumbeus, is one of the largest coastal sharks in the world, reaching up to 2.5 metres in length. It is a close relative of the bull shark and is characterised by a more robust body than other species and a shorter snout. It is usually blue or grey to bronze in colour and has a white belly. It eats fish, crabs and rays, and its predators are sometimes larger sharks, such as tiger sharks and great white sharks.

  • The blacktip reef shark (Carcharhinus melanopterus) can grow up to 2 m long, although it is usually no longer than 150-160 cm. It is a species of requiem shark, easily recognised by the black markings on its dorsal and caudal fins. It is a shy species that is difficult to approach but can be very dangerous to humans.

  • The violin ray, or rhinobatus, is a rhinobathid that reaches up to 170 cm and can weigh almost 20 kg. Like all fish in its family, it is characterised by the flattened cone or arrowhead shape of its head and fins, while the rest of its body is shark-like.
