  • Than happy to go as a couple! the first time I was with the kids but this time just with my boyfriend. What joy to see all these beautiful creatures! Just the polar ourd (male) who got me seemed a little depressed... we spent almost an hour a flatter rays! some of them really seem to like being touched! Wow! for those who go there with their children I strongly advise you to go as a couple (: o) it's so different and it really takes the time to all watch and it also lot more enjoy our visit! I highly recommend! My only "problem" they are not in their natural environment... it's like a zoo, these fish and other animals living in open water are still somewhere took but to see jellyfish has 2 inches from my nose j, really liked to observe them without getting hurt;o)

  • Very cool, for fun, great place for children. It was very cold and rainy, so not all departments were open.

  • Go here. It is a unique experience that you will have as a lasting memory of your visit to Quebec City. Unlike many aquarium's this is a place that has about half of the exhibits outdoors. This is very important to know if you're planning a trip in the winter (like us). It can actually still be fun even in the cold, because the polar bears, walruses and seals are in their more natural atmosphere.
  • Absolutely AMAZING! Great place to visit. Even saw a personnal guide there for a birthday party! Indoor exhibits were breathtaking. You can pet rays and touch starfish. Outside exhibits were great as well. We caught a few feedings. Games throughout the site. Even water games near pinic area. Going back next year for sure!
  • Overall nice experience but it was a little dirty ive seen much better aquariums and lots of the animals you could'nt even see. It's a nice family visite if you've done and seen everything else their is to see. Too expensive for what it is.
  • I love this place! It's a shame that it was pouring rain the day that we went because 40% of the exhibit is outside. We stayed for 2 hours, but if the weather had been nicer, we would have stayed all day. The polar bears and the walruses were my favourite part of the aquarium. They also have a very nice jelly fish exhibit that will amaze you. Also, there is a pool full of sting rays and you get to touch them, which is pretty cool!
  • Great aquarium, very interesting. Lots of fun for young kids! We learned a lot about stingrays, walruses, and many other kinds of fish and mammals! We laughed a lot. The polar bears were a little listless, but that's understandable in the hot Quebec sun. The highlight of the whole fantastic experience was the underwater tunnel through the tank full of many kinds of exotic, exciting, and rare fish! I saw a clownfish up close!
