On-board Diary: A Visit to Palma de Mallorca Aquarium

Author: Keith Ellenbogen
Date: June 5, 2008



As we woke up this morning the Oceana Marviva was docked in the harbour of Palma de Mallorca. With the afternoon to explore the island, Enrique Talledo, Oceana’s underwater videographer and I traveled to Palma Aquarium (www.palmaaquarium.com).

Upon arriving at the aquarium we introduced ourselves and were fortunate to be invited on a behind the scenes tour from Michael Gradel, Assistant Curator. For the next couple of hours he walked us through the various galleries from fishes in the ‘Old World’ to the ‘New World’, “Out Door Gardens’ and the ‘Big Blue’.
