It was a cloudy day so the walk along the beach to the aquarium was well worth it. Excellent displays, info, exhibits. I have seen Melbourne and Osaka aquariums and this ranked well alongside them, just smaller which was nice. Great for all the family or like me a solo traveller. Only disappointment .... No coffee available before the walk... More

The Aquarium is worth a visit, some very good displays although unfortunately the turtle pool was out of order when we visited. It is easily accessible by the 10 or 11 bus as well as being within walking distance of both Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons. It costs XPF1000 to get in which is quite reasonable, it would take...

A small aquarium with good displays of corals & fish. Descriptions provided in French & English. A 50 minute video about whales might have been interesting but as it was in French with no subtitles so we had no idea what was being said. Price is reasonable at 1000 francs but an hour here is more than enough. We wouldn't... More

A great range of live corals are here. We were able to see a lot of coral lives and types of corals. I am originally from Pacific but this was the first time for me to see so many different types of corals. the entry is cheap too compared to how expensive everything else in New Caledornia

The displays were simply beautiful. Made for a great day learning about marine life in a different part of the world.

Very well presented. Naturally it is all about local marine life, but that was different and interesting.

Great for a wet day. Yes it rained and we decided to visit this attraction while walking by. It was inexpensive, and of very high quality with large and unusual displays. It made snorkelling on the outer reef the next day far more meaningful as we had discovered what to look for and observe. Well worth the visit
