I was rather impressed by the array of different underwater life on display at what looked to be a small aquarium. For me as a scuba diver it was fantastic to be able to show my 3 year old the sealife I see and from the same prospective I see it.

Excellent aquarium with lots of varieties of sea life. Very well presented. Only negative was the very slow service at the counter! Friendly, but slow!

The Aquarium was relatively small but the fish were beautiful. Good place to visit to kill an hour! We got our tickets as part of a combo from the next door Quick fast food restaurant for 800F per adult!

This is well worth a few hours. And do it before you go snorkelling so you learn some of the fish you'll see! Really well laid out. The only disappointed was the turtle tank. The turtles just seemed like they were all trying to escape! If you have empathy for creatures you feel don't like being in captivity, skip the... More

Aquariums can be one of those things that become 'same same' after you've been to a couple. This one was certainly not 'same same'! Beautifully kept and an incredible array of tropical fish and sea life. Even fluorescent coral! Don't miss out on this in Noumea!

An excellent narration from Rebokea our tour guide. Noumea Discovery. Very informative yet not "in ya face". Especial interest was the deep sea species displays. Turtles, Nautilus.

Vey helpful staff at this small aquarium. Two great viewing areas to sit and enjoy the tanks at the end of the tour. Amazing coral room. Great for families or sea creature enthusiasts!

The best way to get pictures of coral and the fish. Not as large a range as you can see in the sea but you see some interesting fish and coral not close to the surface, including floresent coral and bioluminesence.
