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

This aquarium is the best I have ever been to, not large but it does not have to be large to be impressive. Nearly all the species you see here can be found if you go snorkelling around the area. All the exhibits are wonderful, they even have deep sea fish. But, for me the best exhibit is the live... More

Really nice place, employees lovely and helpful. But a bit disappointed by the size. Worth a visit, and not really expensive. Good experience. Probably really good with kids.

The aquarium is located right by the water's edge. It is great, with loads of variety of species on show. Well worth a visit.

Definitely worth doing. We were enthralled throughout the visit. Good English, French and Japanese commentary. The variety of fish and the clarity of the water are second to none.

Although smallish (not as big as the Melbourne aquarium) it was very well laid out and totally interesting. Fitted in with Noumean style.

It's certainly not the biggest and best aquarium we have ever been to but unlike just about everything else in N.C, it is very reasonably priced! There was a good range of exhibits, all of which seemed to be well maintained (although the poor crayfish looked like they could use a bigger exhibit area!). All in all, a very easy... More

We walked to the aquarium from our hotel Le Pacifique. We all thoroughly enjoyed this visit and were able to get very close up views of many brilliantly coloured fish, sea plants and coral. This was a great way to spend our one rainy day in Noumea. Highly recommend.
