Turtle Pool

They are among the main attractions of the SEA MUSEUM and live in the largest basin of the house: loggerhead sea turtles, green sea turtles (also called soup turtles) and a real hawksbill turtle.

Key data for the pool:

  • Capacity: 350,000 litres
  • Acrylic glass pane: 25 m² large, 21 cm thick, 6,600 kg heavy
  • Pool depth: 4.5 m

Feeding and diving in the turtle tank

The feeding time in this tank is particularly exciting when the armoured reptiles are supplied with fish, salad and squid.

In addition, "Frieda & Co." receive regular visits from divers. Then it can be observed how they get in close contact with the animals, play with them and stroke them.
If necessary, the panorama window can also be cleaned. In addition, the campaign is commented on, so that you can learn interesting facts about the way of life and behaviour as well as data and facts about the turtles and the largest aquarium in the MEERESMUSEUM. (Please understand that in rare cases, appointments may be cancelled at short notice.)
