Take a trip across the seas of the world at Aquarium La Rochelle. The largest aquarium in the country, this private center features 75 aquariums set in the diverse waters of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans. It’s home to over 12,000 marine creatures, which live in 3 million L (1.5 million gal) of seawater. From all three floors of the indoor space, you can view massive sharks in the gigantic central tank. Surround yourself with 1,000 jellyfish by walking through the 360° tunnel, and explore the colorful coastal area that reveals the mysteries just off land. The Center for Sea Turtles is an absolute must during your visit. Several children's activities promote ocean conservation and fun for all age groups, while interactive kiosks throughout the center provide information about each environment.

Where to stay in La Rochelle

To discover La Rochelle's rich architectural heritage, book your rooms at a stylish hotel near the city's picturesque old harbor. From there, you can easily explore the city's oldest areas, while remaining within easy walking distance of modern tourist attractions, such as the aquarium and natural history museum. If you're travelling on a limited budget, consider staying farther away from the old harbor, where you can choose from a selection of small inns, private B&Bs, and good-value hostels.

  • Not very crowded, very kind personell. I was really amazed - the experience was incredible.The tour takes 1,5 to 2 hours depending on how fast you go. I also recommend the audio guide. I will go there again if I get the chance! 5/5!
  • Nice place, good range of aquaria, even mangrove! Nice landscaping of tanks and pools, and nice use of fluorescence and bioluminescence. Recommended
  • Awesome place to visit. Best to visit outside of weekend if you can. If you want to visit multiple times buy a year pass for great value.
  • Crowded as hell and they are admitting even more ppl... Money hungry idiots. If you've been to Barcelona's aquarium...dont even bother
  • A good place to cure my depression. Thanks Follow 4 free Ipod nano 😀 😃 😄 😁 😆 😅 😂 🤣 ☺️ 😊 😇 🙂 🙃 😉 😌 😍 😘 😗 😙 😚 😋 😜 😝 😛 🤑 🤗 🤓 😎 🤡 🤠 😏 😒 😞 😔 😟 😕 🙁 ☹️ 😣 😖 😫 😩 😤 😠 😡 😶 😐 😑 😯 😦 😧 😮 😲 😵 😳 😱 😨 😰 😢 😥 🤤 😭 😓 😪 😴 🙄 🤔 🤥 😬 🤐 🤢 🤧 😷 🤒 🤕
