The aquarium “Poema del Mar” opens its doors in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Next to the Cruise Ship Pier and 200 meters from “Las Canteras” Beach, has been created in the downtown of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria the Great Aquarium Poema del Mar.
A large biodiversity theme park of our Blue Planet with three zones: surface marine ecosystems, deep marine ecosystems and freshwater species. Poema del Mar will recreate as accurately as possible the ecosystems of dozens of species that inhabit both, inside and outside the water.
The visitor will start the tour submerging in the first zone, The Jungle, which reproduces images of landscapes that cover the entire planet, paying homage to the 5 continents. The second part of Poema del Mar, Arrecife, is a walk around a huge cylinder with more than 400.000 liters of water, which exhibits a variety of colours of corals and fish. The final part of the tour ends in the Deep Ocean.
