Nice!

Nice aquarium, good to see, not very big, it doesn't have a lot of variety of fish but it's worth visiting... Spend good time overthere

Worth a visit, but cost Euro 31 for two. Good to see the penguins and the talks - for the money they should provide an English translation, perhaps via headphones as husband's French is not up to that level. NO toilet paper in an entire ladies' on the ground floor - had to use my own!! Displays good - liked... More

The aquarium is not big but super nice! We loved it and our 2 years old was absolutely happy! They have a ship there with real storm ☺ and it's very realistic! I would definitely recommend this place.

A great area of different displays, live creatures, perspectives of sea life. Much better than the average 'aquarium' - also providing welcome air conditioning on a hot August day!

Been to many aquariums such as London and seaworld in florida. Doesn't compare to those however still has some excellent fish tanks. Loved the marine fish including the puffa and cow fish. Some impressive sharks. There is a talk on the sharks however was in French. There are penguins too and u get to stroke some fish at the end.... More

I visited in July and it was wonderful to see different species of marine life. It is a nice and well-maintained place but it is rather small and not as vast as other major aquariums I've been to.

This is a great day out. Go early to avoid the queues. The penguins are really cool as are the different sharks. Lots to do and the info is given in English and French. Great for adults and kids. Allow about 3 hours for the full trip.

Coming from Sydney which has a large aquarium this was rather small but was saved by a number of things, especially for me the trawler experience....fish wise they don't have much but I enjoyed the visit.

The aquarium have many different fish, and even an attraction with a boat in high sea. The layout is very good and you are attempted to continue the tour.
