Directly on the Rhine, an adventure awaits you that will take you into the world of seas and rivers: Sea Life Speyer. In this large aquarium, you can discover over 3,000 marine creatures from 250 species in more than 40 fascinating tanks. Each habitat is individually designed and perfectly adapted to the specific needs of the animals.
The Underwater Worlds
One highlight of Sea Life Speyer is the "World of Corals". In this colorful underwater world, you can observe diadem sea urchins, longhorn boxfish, and clownfish. Furthermore, Sea Life Speyer offers many other captivating habitats to explore. From moray eels and lobsters to blacktip reef sharks and snapping turtles - each underwater world holds new surprises.
Running through the 320,000-liter ocean tank is an approximately 8-meter-long glass tunnel. This provides a unique all-around view of the underwater world and gives the impression of being part of the ocean itself. The tropical touch pool is especially popular with families and children. Here, you can not only observe but also touch starfish and Indo-Pacific cleaning shrimps up close.
Marty, the Visitor Favorite
A visitor highlight of the aquarium is definitely the green sea turtle "Marty". She was found injured, rescued, and found a new home in the "Panorama Window" of Sea Life Speyer, alongside blacktip reef sharks and zebra sharks. Marty has become a visitor favorite and serves as an important ambassador for species conservation.
Turtle Conservation Project
Sea Life Speyer runs a conservation project for the endangered European pond turtle. The turtles are raised and cared for here before being released back into the wild. The aquarium aims to raise awareness about the threats and conservation of this species and makes an important contribution to species protection.
