Great place to learn

Had a nice time to learn about the marine life in the pacific area. The new aquarium has been very well done and there is alot to see.

I travelled here last year (sorry late review) with my sister. Despite my poor French found the aquarium with help from locals & free bus service. Aquarium was quite modern with lovely exterior. We were surprised that the hour we spent there, only 4 other customers. Impressed with the attraction ( though small). Easily 1 hour is long enough to... More

Definitely worth a visit - such a great variety of marine life. Highlights included seeing the sea turtles being fed and a glimpse of the nautilus.

We arrived on the Carnival Spirit. Taken to the visitor information centre and we exchanged some cash. We then headed up to the bus terminal to catch the local bus. We took local bus No.10 to the aquarium. It was 210CFP for adults and 100CFP for kids. It's about a 20 min trip. Bus stops right at the door of... More

We visited the Aquarium whilst our cruise was in Noumea and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The tanks are most impressive and the staff very friendly. If you are cruising to Noumea, do not buy tickets on the ship, instead buy them at the venue....much cheaper

It has a good variety of Noumea under water wild life. A nice place to visit when in Anse Vata and willing to walk, hide from the sun, or just take a little break. There is an outdoor area, where the turtles are, great to sit and enjoy. Little kids will love it and easy for parents to keep an... More
