Not all days in New Caledonia are sunny! This is the perfect place to spend an afternoon when hanging out on the beach is not feasible. This Aquarium is a surprisingly wonderful attraction and offers a great overview of the sea life in the lagoon that surrounds NC. Amazing displays and a great opportunity to see the local fishes and... More

I was amazed by the quality of this place - absolutely stunning displays, brilliantly maintained. Kids couldn't stop saying "wow!". Too sweet. June 2015, not December.

What a beautiful & well presented aquarium. It had the most eye catching displays . The coral its colour and types were inspiring not to mention the variety of fish. Very clean and well set out. Wonderful for all the family. I was very impressed and can't wait till I can visit again and spend more time there.

We visited the aquarium with our grandkids on a day ashore from a cruise. At us$28 per adult, cheaper for the kids. I haven,t been to an aquarium for many years and my expectations were low, but this is a high class exhibition of what can be found in tropical waters, most exhibits are beautiful, the colours of coral and...

I was completely blown away by this aquarium. Not only beautiful tropical fish, but live corals for them to swim around in many of the tanks. I have been to a few aquariums but none to compare with this one. Without realising, my friend and I stayed there for over two hours, totally absorbed in the calming atmosphere. Be sure... More
