Sous-marin Espadon


Experience life in a genuine submarine

The submarine Espadon (“swordfish” in French) has been open to visitors for 30 years. During its 25-year long career, this submarine sailed the equivalent of 17 times the circumference of the earth, and it was the first French submarine to have dived under the Arctic icefields. Audioguided tour, approx. 30 minutes. In high season it is advisable to visit in the morning in order to avoid queuing.
