  • Mum, Dad and grown up son had a great few hours here. Plenty of parking though at busy times some may be a bit of a walk away. At these times it may be advisable to buy tickets on line. The site is cl...  more »

  • Great aquarium. Fun to go on the hottest day of the year so far. Lots of fish and stuff and there is a lot of English (but of course not as much as French).
  • Nice aquarium, odd layout as you have to go outside to access the other buildings. Good variety of fish, plus penguins, seals and otters.
  • i went there and all the time there i was wishing my daughter are with me, very nice place for kids to go and see sea creatures, there is a collection of tropical, polar, and local fish, seals, and penguins, it is worth visiting if you have time in Brest, easy to get to by the bus service (i think it was line 3 that connect this area to Brest downtown).
  • Great place to visit ...excellent for all ages....ideal to learn about and the protection of animals and nature
  • 3 aquaria in one - huge shark tank in the tropical section, penguins and seals in the polar area and a third pavilion devoted to the wildlife of Brittany.
