Take a plunge into a brand new immersive, interactive adventure for an intimate encounter with the world’s biggest mammals!
The "Spot” is a digital wall that invites you to meet cetaceans up close. Alone or as a group, you will take a virtual dive with humpback whales and get the chance to interact with them, thanks to cameras that capture your movements. By observing, moving and just having fun, you will trigger the behaviours of these ocean giants...
The marine mammals are projected life-size in a spectacular visual production combining photorealistic 3D modelling and organic animations rigorously verified by a scientific committee.
Created in partnership with the Canadian company CREO, the range of scenarios presented by the Spot will gradually be added to. Watching humpback whales and belugas feed, helping to babysit baby whales, all these (contactless) actions aim to nurture an active understanding of these very special societies of large marine mammals.
Your impressions and reactions will be gathered regularly to help us improve the show. In other words, you will be helping with the development of this innovative project.
