As Malta's only marine park, the Mediterraneo Marine Park is one of the best spots to see the island's varied marine life and an important animal welfare education center. Highlights of any visit include the daily dolphin and sea lion presentations, during which experienced handlers showcase each animal's athletic and cognitive abilities, discuss their individual characteristics, and explain how they are cared for and trained in an interactive learning environment.
Visitors can also explore the Reptile House and Vivarium, home to a vast variety of turtles, tortoises, iguanas, snakes, frogs, and spiders, and enjoy the parrot presentation, featuring blue and gold macaws, orange-winged amazons, and green-winged macaws.
The Mediterraneo Marine Park is located on the north coast of Malta and is linked to the island’s hotels and resorts by the Tul Il-Kosta coast road. The park is open daily from 10am to 5pm, and adult admission costs €15.90.
Although Viator tours do not include this activity, the Mediterraneo Marine Park also offers the chance to swim with dolphins, plus interactive experiences with dolphins, sea lions, and parrots for an additional fee. Prices start from €120 for dolphin swims and €35 for interactive experiences. Reservations required.
