The Aquarium is located very nicely in the city center of La Rochelle. The prices were decent, offering student prices as well. If you decide to get the yearly pass, it comes with a lot of perks such as various discounts and unlimited visits throughout...More

Not quite Blue Planet but an interesting visit when many of La Rochelle’s attractions are not open, at least in mid-week. The tanks are clean and the sea creatures seem lively and well cared for. English commentary available on headphones. Children were enjoying their visit.

One of the best and most interesting Aquariums we have visited. Beautiful, clean tanks with lots going on. Unusual species such as Cuttlefish, Nautilus, Octopus, Jellyfish etc. Went off season and early so no crowds and easy to get around and look at everything

This is a really excellent aquarium. The scale and variety of the exhibits is breathtaking. Great for kids or adults and really worth spending a few hours there to take everything in.

A lovely relaxing walk to see a wide selection of different species of fish, broken down into sections by ocean, worth a look, stayed here roughly 90 minutes. Don’t buy any food or drink outside at the stand as it’s overpriced.

We absolutely loved this aquarium. It has to be the best one I have visited, so naturally done and a calm environment I would thoroughly recommend it!

We eventually bought €15 morning tickets on-line with no problems. Glad we did, the queues to buy tickets looked long. There doesn't seem to be a way to buy the cheaper ticket at the moment.
