  • Visited the aquarium on a wet day recently where we had about 4 hours to kill. The aquarium was strangely deserted as the school semester had just begun. We had lots of time to wander through each of ...  read more »
  • 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!
  • 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!
  • 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!
  • We enjoyed our visit to this Aquarium very much. There is plenty to see with lots of outdoor habitats for the larger animals. The polar bears were very active swimming around and rubbing up against the glass right next to us. We arrived early and managed to get a parking spot close to the entrance this also meant it was fairly quiet so it was easy to see the attractions. The facility itself is well taken care of and very modern and clean. I would highly recommend a visit to this aquarium!
  • Always a great activity for the kids, the deep sea environment with medusa is wonderful. A good balance of price/fun/learning activity. The Water Parc section could be improved a little, but that is a minor thing.
