It's no Altanis aquarium but is worth visiting due to its convenient location. Little pricey but everything is in Noumea. Turtle pool are main tank are the pick of the displays.

Well worth the entry cost (which was quite modest) especially if you don't have any plans to dive or snorkel at the reef

This is a small and dated venue. Interesting to see the local sea and river specimens as well as coral samples for area.

They had some cool fish. great to see some coral, lots of colourful fish, a tank with turtles (which we were not so sure was big enough...) and a ray with reef sharks. Just not sure we like small aquariums, like circus animal attractions.... ?
