Mediterraneo Marine Park, in Baħar Ic-Cagħaq, is a theme park set against the backdrop of Malta’s Mediterranean Sea. Children and adults can spend an unforgettable day at the park which features the unique experience of swimming with dolphins, as well as giving visitors the opportunity to feed exotic birds and learn about marine life through interaction. Mediterraneo always has the animals best interest at heart and promotes their conservation through education.
Enjoying Malta’s sunny climate, The Mediterraneo Marine Park remains open all year round. The park is conveniently located just off the main coast road enabling good transport links from most hotels and tourist accommodation.
Part of the Costa Edutainment group (since July 2012), The Mediterraneo Marine Park advocates animal welfare through an interactive learning environment inspired by their motto “Education, Emotion and FUN”. Visitors may participate in various animal interaction programmes which provide superb entertainment whilst increasing awareness and conservation responsibilities.
The park has three main programmes which are held daily:
The Dolphin Presentation, The Sea Lion Presentation and the Parrot Presentation. All of these presentations offer an amazing experience to aid a better understanding of the animals and an appreciation of their individual characteristics. The highlight of any visit to The Mediterraneo Marine Park has to be the Dolphin SWIM programme – a truly unique and once in a lifetime experience that is not to be missed! Some of the other species that visitors can also expect to see include green wing Macaw, Amazons, Snakes, Tortoises, Turtles, Frogs, Toads, Spiders, Scorpions and Lizards.
Most popular amongst Mediterraneo programmes is the Dolphin Swim Programme, where visitors have the rare opportunity to swim with bottlenose dolphins under the guidance of professional animal carers. Blending an informative presentation with exciting first hand experience, in The Sea Lion Interactive Programme guests can learn about the feeding habits and conservation of these fascinating South American mammals. While The Reptile House hosts a variety of arachnids, amphibians and reptiles such as snakes, lizards and spiders. As Malta’s only marine park, Mediterraneo has become a leading attraction with both tourist and locals.
