  • The Océanopolis is organized around four pavilions: the tropical, the temperate and the polar and biodiversity. We like the manchotiere and seals, the wall of coral and the pool of sharks, otters outside and the aquarium to the jellyfish. It's very playful (ideal for children) but also very well documented (for adults). Ideal for rainy days but attention to the world and the noise during the school holidays.

  • The must-see of the Brest country. It regretted the high price for children over 3 years. Very good family time. Snack of good quality on the site.

  • We went to Oceanopolis so my girlfriend could learn more about the sea life, and she loved it! Discovering all those different animals, and all the explanations along them taught us a lot. The zoo is very well organized with the different areas, and there are the feeding shows of the animals that you shouldn't miss.
  • The Aquarium is good but nothing extraordinary.It was a good day out and it's pretty interesting for children/adult however the cost is pretty high when you come with a family then if you need to eat you will have overpriced sandwich/dinner with rude people who work in restaurant (this doesnt apply to people who work in the aquarium itself).
  • Awesome! Right up there with the likes of Oceanarium in Lisbon. Good animals and guides, well kept. Some areas don't look too pretty.
  • Interesting place with lots of different ocean life. Great for a rainy day with kids.
  • Very impressive and modern site. Good displays and 'hands on' possibilities for kids. Good food choices and quality fine. Easy to reach, just off main dual carriageway. Plenty of onsite parking.
