  • This aquarium is worth seeing, it is the most beautiful that I had the opportunity to visit after Nausicaa in Boulogne on sea of course. If you are on holiday in the North of Brittany, go ahead...

  • My brother, my daughter and my nephew loved! The new attraction is great, down deep-sea marine, we believe without having ears that clog! And the fish are beautiful, the staff, children and adults like serious!

  • A good way to kill a few hours with family, young or old. Good information on everything on show. The Nautibus is a great idea. The newer elevator-type thing that takes you 'into the deep' is a bit of a fail IMO. One of the better aquariums we've been to.
  • Really interesting fish on display with lots of information (also presented in English for us foriegners!) for us grown ups to enjoy, but this place is best enjoyed by kids - our 3 year old loved this place! The 360° tank was particularly good as were the floor to ceiling tanks.
  • Loved this place. So well laid out with the amazing submarine adventure included. My little boy loved it!
  • excellent well kept informative. 2nd visit.
  • Great aquarium, very emersive and educational.
