Even though we went out of season (November) and the aquarium itself wasn't particularly busy, we found the display windows small and therefore crowded and it was hard to get a good view into many. It was also a little dated and static compared to...More

We've been to Monterey Bay, The London Aquarium, the Trocadero one in Paris and many more, and La Rochelle's aquarium is definitely the best of all: it is modern, beautiful, the scenography is great... Apart from the touch tanks (they don't have any), there is...More

On our first visit to La Rochelle, we decided to first visit its beautiful aquarium and were really impressed. The variety of species from around the world is impressive and such a visit really calms the soul! If you have children, this is a must!

Being a family of 4 small boys, I think we’ve visited all the aquariums of the countries we’ve gone to, and I can honestly say that this La Rochelle jewel is one of the best. The interiors and the layout were artistically done. It was...More

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.
