  • Very nice and entertaining visit with a very friendly welcome at the entrance. We had the chance to visit with almost no one (a Monday afternoon of September), which is not negligible. On the side of the most: - Free Parking great - good home - beautiful diversity of fish - sea ring is very impressive to see - basins touch - not crowded at all (fluke?) - 2 friendly and original attractions in bonus on the side of less, e t let me be picky about the details because the comments are read by an officer of the aquarium (so if it can be constructive and help make it even better, let me... ;-)) - I find than descriptions explaining the different) fish in each aquarium parade a little fast for the average reader. However, they are super well done with just the right information (thumbs up for that) - lack of staff in the tactile area to guide people in the discovery. In our case there was nobody and we were a bit cautious to start a touch of crab for fear of leaving a phalanx... :-) - entry is a bit expensive even if it is possible to buy in advance to pay for cheaper (booking 7 days in advance) r sumary, if you pass by Saint-Malo, for a visit. Allow between 1 and 2 hours.

  • Nice to go, many exotic fish Aquarium. The place or sharks and turtles are endless... seemed to me to be tiny compared to the size of the animals and this made me uncomfortable... Not enough of the place. Apart from that all is well and morays are awesome!

  • I loved and my family also. After the disappointment of the aquarium of Biarritz, I apprehendais but it was a great time: 1 h 30 with very pretty pools, superb scenery, open pools ou you can touch some species, 380degres ou pond it is possible to ask on the floor to watch ball benches and species, then a simulation and a submarine... frankly we were few in number, they took full advantage. Super

  • Very good aquarium and the two rides at the end are great. The 360 degree aquarium is amazing. We busted out of season (early Oct) and the whole place was very quiet. Great for a rainy day out.
  • Excellent for a 5&11yr olds and adults alike. Came yesterday in the rain and the choca car park was enough to make us turn around and come back today in the sunshine as it opened. Much better!
  • Cool fish. Underwater 'rides' also very nice. Really nicely done. Worth the visit.
  • Beautifully set out b aquarium. But on the expensive side but certainly well worth the visit. Kids will love done of the unique things within the aquarium. In an not going to say what because that will spoil it.
  • Lovely for kids and adults. The 360° space is wonderful for observing closely different oceans’ living. Amazing experience by touching fishes. We’ve been there.3 times already and we will go.back again!
