  • Firstly, this is a high-level aquarium with many interesting species, which all appear to be cared for well. Many of the recent reviews mention how busy and crowded this aquarium gets. This is true...

  • We spent 7 hours in this Aquarium and it is amazing, full of sea creatures we have never seen before. every ecosystem is incredibly well shown. You'll get the experience of diving with sharks, seeing creatures of the deepest oceans and even standing on the deck of a ship in a storm. It makes sense to buy the tickets in advance but I do not recommend the lunch voucher because it gives absolutely no advantage. you simply buy a voucher of 15 euros, whatever you take, and they don't have a combined menu for that. Better get there and eat what you want. The usual French "friendliness"... plenty of very clean toilets. Super attraction
  • We had brilliant time here today, the place is amazing! The size of the tanks is incredible with a great range of fish. There are two main sections the first being the deep sea with a great range of big and small displays. The second is a coast section with an huge range of habitats and fish. This is a big site so small kids like ours we wizzed around in 3 hours but you could spend all day here easily. I would recommend bringing your own food as the queue to the main restaurant is pretty mega. Great day out
