My wife and I visited the aquarium as half the places to see in Guernsey during January are closed, but also as I am a keen fish keeper with tank and pond. To say we were disappointed is a understatement. The aquariums are very poorly...More

Like most aquariums, being next to the ocean allows for constant sea water to be used to keep the tanks in good condition. This aquarium don't seem to have made best use of this. The fish were in very poor condition, with many tanks containing...More

The aquarium is ideally situated close to La Valette Museum so was easy to do the two together. This is a lovely well-kept aquarium with a good amount of exhibits. Worth a visit.

A friendly and honest welcome by the owner not to expect a huge aquarium but think along the lines of a petting farm compared to a zoo. A brilliant comparison. Visit because you will see a good selection of tropical fish and marine fish found...More

Slightly disappointed in the lack of local, marine life promised to be on display. But worth the visit to see the results of the effort put in to install the display tanks in the old Occupation Tunnels.
