“Great Aquarium and frindly interested staff”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

This is a must for the family and can easily spend 2-3 hours in a calm and relaxing environment, the variety of the fish and getting up close is great, staff speak good English and were keen to introduce the various species and their knowledge, a great morning thank you

“Total blast!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

My 2 adult children and their parents all LOVED the Aquarium. Cool exhibits and exciting space. All the signage was in French, but we got the idea. Cool sea creatures. Go see it!

“Entertaining!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I have been there twice, and every time was a good experience. Staff is lovely and helpful. There is a lot to see (and a lot of space). I just think it is too expensive, even with reduced prices (students, etc.)
I would recommend it though!

“Fun. Lots of sharks. A big squid.”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

I liked this place. We went on a week day morning so there was no one there. It was really well organised, they had put a lot of effort into the displays and information, and most of all, the tanks were well maintained, meaning the fish didn't look too annoyed that they were incarcerated for life.
There was also a kind of ship's bridge to stand on that simulated various weather conditions, right up to storm force winds. A nice touch.
