  • A bit expensive! Indeed, we in Dieppe, one of the biggest resorts, with an extraordinary maritime history... and we have the right to a tiny city of the sea, or a lot of things are incomplete or do only work half. Aquariums are nice, too bad that most of the signs do not indicate the good fish... to €4 50 max could be nice, but at €7 50, for a 30 minute tour, with a lot of things out of operation, no thanks!

  • I go with my class. It was cool I liked. The staff is a little strict level don't even touch almost anything not windows or there are models inside. (That's why I have take off a star).
