Marineland is an animal exhibition park in Antibes, France. It was founded in 1970 by Roland de la Poype. First, it was a small oceanarium with a few pools and animals but now it is one of the biggest in the world and receives more than 1,200,000 visitors per year. It is the only French sea park featuring two cetacean species: killer whales and dolphins.
Killer whale show: the largest tank in the world performing in eleven million gallons of water, with a panoramic glass wall 64 metres long where the spectacular power of these mammals weighing several metric tons rivals the gentle complicity binding the whales with their trainers. Marineland holds five orcas: Freya, Valentin, Inouk, Wikie and her calf, born in March 2011.
