Marine Park Malta
The Marine Park Malta in Naxxar is a great day out for the whole family. This is Malta’s only marine park and is a leading attraction on the island with locals and tourists alike. The park is open all year around and provides entertaining and educational shows providing a unique opportunity for children and adults to learn, enjoy and interact with a variety of animals and sea life. The park also boasts a Vivarium with turtles, frogs, snakes, iguanas and spiders.
Kids will love learning all about the underwater world of dolphins and sea lions as well as being entertained with various shows. There are three main daily shows to see while there. The Dolphin Show, The Sea Lion Show and the Parrot Show.
The Dolphin Show
The bottle-nose Dolphins of course are the main stars of the Marine Park. The show is an amazing display of acrobatics while also a teaching experience as the trainers provide you with information about the dolphins and their habitat. This is a truly unique and delightful experience for all the family and a big hit for all visitors to the park.
The Sea Lion Show
Probably one of the funniest and entertaining shows in the park is the Sea Lion show. The show is a fantastic blend of informative commentary from the trainers whilst also providing some cheeky humour from the sea lions. These South American Sea Lions are great fun to watch and if lucky you may even get a customary kiss from one after the show.
The Parrot Show
A highly informative show featuring parrots, macaws with their bright colours and distinctive sounds and imitations. Learn everything about these wonderful birds and their environment, diets and of course their entertaining interactions.
Marine Park Malta also offers several interaction programmes where you can interact with the dolphins, sea lions and parrots. A chance to swim with the dolphins is also available. Pre-booking is advised as these are very popular programmes.
