  • This was a first for my daughter and she keeps asking to go back every year. It's interesting and good clean fun!  more »
  • Well worth a visit for the whole family, the pavilions are varied and the explanations are clear and concise. Little information on the web site of SÉPAQ to the effect that several attractions are outdoors, so we did not anticipate in mid-winter at-20 adequate clothing to fully enjoy the animals outside (polar bears, seals and walruses). A little expensive for a tour of 2 h however, summer worth probably more value, with water games and picnic areas.

  • We are disappointed because we expected more variety of fish. Short visit. It's a clean place, and animals / fish seems to be in good hands.

  • 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!
