#2 of 18 in Wildlife in Vendee
Aquarium de Vendee is one of the few aquariums that use top open tanks to recreate a natural environment for their schools of exotic fish. These species rely on sunlight and lunar cycles for a healthy behavior cycle. The tanks hold over 300 species of fish from waters around the world who create a veritable montage of color as they pass by your viewing glass. You’ll see iridescent schools swim through sunlit waters and the elegant gliding of sharks and rays along the water bed.

  • We live in Saumur we made 200 km in the morning to visit this aquarium with our daughter who is 12 years old and our son 10 years. My wife had planned the whole weekend on the Internet and had seen that there were children rates up to 12 years on presentation of the identity card (normal) on the brochure it is stipulated reduced fare for children under twelve years included Gold our daughter is twelve years old but it is very large, the hostess of reception makes us pay 3 adult places and a child, my wife tells her that our daughter is twelve years old and that she is apparently entitled to a reduced rate, little Court on the settlement on the part of the host hostess who States that the twelve years are not included in the tariff less than twelve years we pay so without making history back home we realize that we were right damage the Aquarium is however very pretty we still had a good MOM Note: we are not cheap we love fair prices

  • This aquarium makes us travel on all continents, the fish are beautiful and the places are spotless. The price of the places is a bit pricey for a 4 year old child...

  • A little expensive for the size. Even if you read every information panel your visit is barely an hour long. But nicely set up. I like the continent theme.
  • A great attraction, kept us busy for nearly two hours. There is a nice food place outside selling mains and ice cream.
  • A good day out, at a good price as well
  • Wanted to pay to go into the aquarium for the afternoon with my brother who was 13 and I was 17. The man said it would cost us 38 euros to get in, I knew this wasn’t right as we checked the prices out online. We left without a trip to the aquarium didn’t want to pay 38 euros.
  • Nice aquarium - just a little crowded. We enjoyed visiting this aquarium with our two children, 7 + 3. Cost . 13.80 EUR per adult, Children under 3 free, Children 3-12 9.80 EUR. The collection of fish was good and the natural lighting into some of the tanks was really nice to see. There were some feeding sessions, announced over the tannoy. On some of the smaller tanks it was a little tedious queuing to move slowly forwards so we just skipped them. Only having one set of toilets which are situated at the entrance/exit is particularly annoying when your child wants to go to the toilet half way through the tour (toilets at half way point would be an idea!) There also seemed to be a bouncy castle and a food hut of some description outside the entrance so something else for the kids to do also. So - no complaints and did the trick of something to do whilst on holiday.
