Made a visit on a rainy afternoon to pass a couple of hours. A little dissapointing. Pretty basic aquarium with lots of small tropical fish and not enough of the bigger beasts. No external attractions.

My partner and I visited here whilst on holiday last week, and we love to visit aquariums, this one to me for some reason just had a great feel to it! I loved it's layout, it's spacious tanks, the fact they had bothered to put information up in English and French. I can honestly say I enjoyed it from start... More

The centre is well laid out and the large tanks are very impressive information is provided in English although demonstration and feeding times are all in French my kids thought that my basic translation was really funny though

It rained one day on our holiday, sadly everyone had the same idea and visited the aquarium. That said we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were polite, the prices not extortionate and the exhibits of a good quality. We tend to visit aquariums and although not on par with last years visit to Biarritz it had some species we...

We found it expensive and were back in the car park in about half an hour. Some of the specimens were ok, just not enough of them to justify the price.

Went during the first week of June so was still low season, some of the tanks were huge so at least everyone could see the different animals in them but they do have the smaller tanks too so be prepared to queue when it's busy to get to see them all but it was quite a relaxing visit when we...

Son loves aquariums so it was obvious choice. Bit expensive but kids enjoyed it. Major downfall is names and descriptions of fish way too high on screens for kids to read. Should be lowered down. Otherwise good 1-2 hours on rainy day.

Visited the aquarium on a rainy day, this has to be one of the best aquariums we have visited. It took approx 2 hrs to complete but we could have spent longer. There was a tactile tank which the children loved and the highlight the flashlight fish, everybody was amazed with these. The tanks were named with information in both... More

Fantastic aquarium with tanks normally reserved for a large city setting. Informative and visually striking it is definitely worth a visit. Two hours very well spent. Ideal for children.

This aquarium was a nice surprise just down the road from where we were staying. It took a couple of hours to get round all the exhibits, but that would probably been a bit shorter had the entire population of France not decided to go at the same time as us. That said, once we got out of the first... More
