At 15erou a bit steep but a good visit. Very good exhibits and wonderfully presented. I took about 2 hours to view it all with reading time. And the rain forest at the end was pleasant. For a rainy day in La Rochelle well worth it. But that's just my opinion .0

I really enjoy visiting aquariums when I travel, and this is one of the better aquaria I have visited. It is a large aquarium, with a lot of different aquatic creatures. It is also worth while to get the available audio guide.

My husband and I visited this together on our first trip to La Rochelle, only weeks after visiting the Paris Aquarium. It was like a different world. First of all, the place is huge! There were lots of families with kids and even teenagers, all of whom loved it. Their signs are informative, as you would expect, there is a... More

Really impressed with 360° tunnel as we walked thru it, which is surrounded by different species of jelly fish. The 300 million litre water tank was breath taking - the Mediterranean and tropical fish with sharks and turtles are not to be missed ! We were on a cruise and the aquarium is only minutes walk from the port and... More

Good aquarium despite poor / unfriendly reception staff and an abnormal pricing policy (they charged my 3 year old about 15 USD).

This is a must for a visitor to La Rochelle. We used the English guides and learnt so much about our oceans and what lives in them. To see sharks, turtles and brightly coloured fish so close was a bonus. We had lunch in the Cafe above the Aquarium which gave lovely views over LR. The food was excellent but... More

A fantastic attraction for the city of La Rochelle. This aquarium is first class with many different tanks housing so many different species of fish and sea life of numerous shapes, sizes and colours. You wander through two floors of tanks, information, a movie theatre and then you arrive in the tropics - where you cross a wobble bridge and... More
