Can I visit Océanopolis with my dog ?

Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed in Océanopolis. 

This measure is imposed on us by the decree of March 25, 2004, published in the Official Journal of April 1, 2004. It sets the general rules of operation and the general characteristics of the installations of fixed and permanent zoological establishments, presenting live specimens of local or foreign fauna falling under heading 21-40 of the nomenclature of installations classified for the protection of the environment.

Article 13 of this decree concerns more particularly our friends the dogs:

“Animals must be protected from predation by animals foreign to the establishment. They must not be able to be disturbed or excited by animals foreign to the establishment. If necessary, establishments should implement programs to control these indesirable animal populations.”

However, we accept guide dogs.
