Loved this aquarium on a day off from a cycling trip in La Rochelle. Something to see and do for adults as well as kids. We mostly remarked on what the fish we were used to seeing on our plates looked like in real life. It's very well planned out and imaginative. There are explanations and signs in English

I really enjoyed my visit to the aquarium. It's well laid out and the size of the tanks made it very easy to enjoy watching the sea life.

This visit was out of this world! Perfect place to be if you wish a little break from the French summer sun. Even though I had read reviews on here, nothing could have prepared me for just how fantastic this was going to be. It is impressive that a city like La Rochelle has managed to creat this, London could... More

The fish are huge tanks and they seem much the better for it. The jellyfish displays are the best I've seen. DIsplays are in... More

This is a great place to spend a couple of hours and from our observations children really enjoy it. We had lunch in the excellent restaurant before touring the aquarium which starts by going doen in a lift on which you feel you are going down in the sea

This attraction was brilliant! The cost for an adult was 15 euros which was great value. There were alot of tanks filled with beautiful specimens from all over the world. There were quite a few places where you could just sit and watch the fish. Well worth a visit.
