The facility is small, esp. compared to those elsewhere (Boulogne, Brest, Lisbon) . As a consequence, there are fewer aquariums, and when in one or two of these the fish or other animals are not visible, there are not many others to make up for it. Even on an out-of-season day, the place is easily crowded, and in the plexiglas deep-sea tunnel (presumably one of the highlights) the visitor's enjoyment is definitely limited by cramped space and the boisterous behaviour of improperly supervised school kids. The enjoyment and appreciation of the outdoor displays (NOT tourist-oriented "shows", which I must grant is creditable), that is, the seals and seal clinic, turtles, penguins and otters is very dependent on the weather. The "jellyfish disco" means little more than changing light and deafening music, but true enough, it shows the varieties of jellyfish in an interesting, unexpected perspective.
The cafeteria is pretty sordid (metal tables and chairs, not all clean) and the food banal ("vegetarian" pasta means no meat, but also no vegetables, nothing but a greasy cheesy sauce on top), all served slowly and sulkingly.
