Great place to take the family to learn all about the marine life in and around New Caledonia. The tanks are large and well stocked with plenty of information in several languages, including English. The turtles were huge! It was great to put a name to the fish we had previously seen snorkeling. I would definitely recommend a visit.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable visit. It's not a huge aquarium but it is nicely set out and has some very impressive large aquariums. Its quite informative and has English explanations as we. It is worth a couple of hours of your time. It's also quite a relaxing place to spend your time. I expect sive as well. It's good value.

I have visited a lot of aquariums and this one is near the top. It has some great tanks with lots of colourful local fish that all appear quite healthy. The sea snake tank was fascinating while the outdoor turtle pool was nice (and there are some good views of Baie de Citron). Overall, I would say it has a nice balance of specimens, is clean, with lots of sparkling colours throughout and it provides a great time for a family with small kids.

If you have been to the aquariums in Oz this may not be the place to go. It is quite a small aquarium but we enjoyed a leisurely time wandering through. Take the time to go and see the turtles in the outside area....great view over Noumea from up there

It's a nice aquarium, including sharks. I went there by bus at bus stop Commodore. It was a rainy day. Turtles are outside and nicer with dry weather. A lot of children running around. Building a bit dated.
