An amazing collection of marine life, beautifully displayed. We spent nearly three hours watching all the corals and fish, and reading the informative signs describing them. We were briefly inundated by crowds from cruise ships a few times, but they got whisked through the place so fast they didn't disturb us for long (we felt sorry for them - they... More

A look but disappointing. The turtle enclosure was lack lustre. Lots of kids from the schools visiting when we were there , and the little ones appeared to enjoy it.

Lots of aquariums with an amazing array of fish. The sea snakes were very scarey especially as we were intending to swim in the sea.

We walked from the Hilton into downtown Noumea and visited here on the way back. The signage is not very large so we missed it on the way there (its behind the Quick burger joint). Plenty to see and make sure you go outside to the turtles. Amazing coral colours and the striped snakes were amazing & revolting at the... More

Good value, 2 adults and 2 kids CFP2,000, easy place to spend 2/3 hours, wonderful fish, god education for the surrounding seas. Fish feeding was a bonus, sadly though the commentary only in French- beyond my schoolboy repertoire!

This unobtrusive aquarium is a very small place but internationally known for its research on fluorescent corals and nautilus reproduction. It is best seen during a sunny day as the tanks benefit from natural light. It can be reached at the end of the Lemon Bay (Baie des Citrons) behind the round tower 'Casa Del Sol' on the left (short... More
