Presentation

The submarine trip... in Saint Nazaire!
Embark on a journey aboard the first French submarine to dive under the ice pack!
Between the main passageway, the listening post and the torpedo room, imagine yourself in the depths of the sea. In turn, during a surprising visit, experience the life of a submariner.
The Espadon submarine is a certified "Musée de France".
Twenty thousand leagues under the sea...you will experience the multiple sensations. Your destination? Your mission? You will learn about it on site, because we are inviting you to a real expedition. You will discover the whole submarine, by going through the main passageway and the living spaces of the crew.

A former French Navy vessel launched in 1958, the Espadon has covered, in 25 years of service, the equivalent of 17 times around the earth. It is also the first submersible to have sailed under the Arctic ice and remains today the only submarine afloat that can be visited in France.

The 3 good reasons to visit the Espadon:
- imagine yourself diving into the depths of the oceans, going on an underwater expedition beyond the Arctic Circle, during long weeks
- discover how 65 crew members could live together in so little space
- enjoy the brand new sound immersion tour and listen for the first time to the sound of a school of shrimp or the sound of an iceberg breaking in two

2 audioguided tours for adults AND children!

Allow about 40 minutes for the audioguided tour, visit on time slot - reservation recommended.
Last admission: 30 minutes before the site closes.
