Both kid and adult friendly this Aquarium is awesome! It may not be the largest place but it offers a lot to do such as: Interacting with animals (Petting starfish, stingrays, and sea cucumbers..), a variety of marine life to gawk at, and the opportunity to watch the polar bears, seals, and walrus' is quite entertaining! It is worth a... More

This wasn’t a huge place, but we enjoyed it. The facility makes good use of space and has quite a few animals. The highlights were definitely the seal and walrus shows, which were well done, but were presented primarily in French with only a smattering of English. For the written exhibit captions, however, there was always both French and English,... More

Location was great just off the highways. There were less attractions than I was expecting, actually I bit disappointed in not seeing as many varieties of marine species. However, the tanks were highlighted well, and loved the glass tunnel underneath the tanks. The "petting" area was ok, but could have had a few more things like a sea cucumber etc.... More

Far more than just an aquarium, this park includes gardens and large animal exhibits (polar bear, arctic fox, walrus, etc.) as well as a large play area and restaurant. Parking is free. Numerous aquariums contain freshwater and seawater fish and animals. The largest one can be viewed from above and from a glass tunnel through it. The jellyfish exhibit (in... More

But if you are traveling with little ones, bring them over for the fishy shows, the seals and the touchy feelies. Know that the shows are entirely in french, but they try to accommodate for their English speaking friends. Show your AAA card for 10% off!

The best thing about this aquarium is the walruses. I'd never seen them in a aquarium before and my family and I spent a lot of time watching them when we visited. The polar bear, seal, and arctic fox exhibits were also very cool. The aquarium is big enough to spend a day in but not overwhelming like others can... More

We visit aquariums every chance we can, and this one did not disappoint. The walruses were particularly interesting as were the variety of seals. There was just enough information to read, without it being too much or too discouraging. I thought it would be a particularly great aquarium for young children as there was a lot of hands on activities... More

It was our first time in an aquarium. Plenty of fishes of all kinds and colours. But i liked the colourful jelly fish pond. The colour was coming from light ,but it made a very nice environment. We went during the winter and there was mild snow fall that day. So the outside animal was difficult to see. But we... More

A small aquarium with lots of different activities. Two outdoor shows (seals and walruses). Many kinds of fish and other aquatic life...mostly Canadian species. Children are able to touch live star fish and rays. There is a small playground for children. Several eating areas on site. Affordable entertainment for the family.
