Only Local currency used here and was very pleased that debit/credit card was accepted.

The Aquarium is good to spend a few hours and not expensive compared to the rest of Noumea. Great selection of what fish are around New Caledonia and surrounding areas. The turtles have to be the highlight! Conservation and how to protect the oceans doesn’t...More

Cool off without having a swim! Excellent time on a warm/hot day to make your way through here - air conditioned! Lovely fish and even large outdoor turtles, yay! Can spend 1-1.5hr at a leisurely pace.

Some fish are shy when you dive into the lagoon to see them! We are delighted that the visit pleased you :)

Great range of local marine life, including a few that you rarely see in aquaria, like the nautilus and sea snakes. Good displays of fluorescent coral, plus the usual crowd pleasers like sharks and rays. Well worth a visit, and not expensive.

Bus or taxi. Taxis are cheap so I would do that as saves waiting. There is a lovely beach and many restaurants close by you can make a day of it
