This exhibition is really well done and showcases the sea life of the St Lawrence. It is under threat of closure and should be supported as it is a great resource for this little town.

A marvelous combination of aquarium and hands-on experience, the perfect way to introduce visitors (especially kids) to a region still dependent on the sea. Probably the only way to experience fish-harvesting without hiring onto a boat -- and if there's a species in adjacent waters, it's probably in one of its tanks (including live cod, sea urchins and lobster).

Just went into the very nice boutique/gift shop. Good selection, nearly surprising for the otherwise rather quiet harbour

The kids liked it but they also really wanted to go fishing and that was unavailable. Enjoyed the fourchette bleue program that they have a tasted seal for the first time! actually very yummy!

This is a truly amazing facility, featuring a dozen tanks with raven fish (a favourite), wolffish, cod, zooplankton, blue lobster, crabs, whelks, starfish. Fascinating to discover what life looks like under the estuary and gulf. Has a cafe, a great play area outside. Reserve the boat ride if you can and weather is good. Great fish restaurant adjacent.

We were passing through, weather was substandard, so decided to stop in. Not a bad facility given the remote location. Price is a bit high for what you get given that you can easily go through in about an hour (even with kids in tow). Staff are super friendly. Had one give us overtime in the touching pools given that... More

Not a bad little place if you have a couple of hours spare or children to entertain. More of an educational experience than entertainment and a good launch point for a spot of whale watching. The upstairs static displays are informative, with good use of technology to ram home the message that we need to improve our Eco habits. The... More

Good local place. Good for families to learn about the beautiful St Lawrence River. If I were traveling with children I would check on what programs they were offering and when. I would certainly schedule a stop for a program. And to let the kids stretch their legs. It is not a big-city aquarium but it does offer a lot... More

It is a great spot to learn about marine life in the St. Lawrence. It isn't Chicago or Boston aquarium but you are far from paying those price. I though that the quality for the price was good. There is touch pool where you get to tough hermit crabs, sea stars, sea cucumbers, urchins and others. The kids really enjoyed... More
