Information COVID-19: Ashore and at sea, for the marine and scientific crew as well as for the public we meet, safety for all is our watchword. Until further notice, the visits of the scientific schooner Tara are cancelled to help limit the spread of the epidemic. Those who have already booked will be reimbursed in the coming days.
We sincerely hope to welcome you soon on board, but for now, it is in the warmth of your home that we suggest you virtually visit Tara.
From exploration to preservation: when the Ocean comes to town
The research schooner Tara, representing the Tara Ocean Foundation, will be docked in Paris from February 29 to April 13, 2020. Through an exhibition and guided tours of the legendary boat, we invite you to travel, dream and discover. On the eve of the 2020 municipal elections in France, what if we take a fresh look at our relationship with the Ocean and marine biodiversity?
Every weekend and Wednesday and Friday afternoon, from February 29 to April 13, the Tara Ocean Foundation will be happy to welcome you aboard to learn about the schooner and the various instruments used for scientific research. Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied. Unfortunately, the access on Tara is not adapted to welcome people with reduced mobility and animals are not accepted on board.
Exhibition : “Tara, Discovering a New World: the Ocean”
Set up on the quai next to the schooner, this exhibition provides a total immersion in the world of Tara’s expeditions. Learn about the 4 main missions of the Tara Ocean Foundation. From one expedition to another, you will discover the major environmental issues confronting our planet. The exhibition is accessible to people with reduced mobility.
Until further notice, the visits of the scientific schooner Tara are cancelled to help limit the spread of the epidemic.
