  • We have needed just 15 minutes for the visit. Some small pools with marine life around the reef and in the great basin which just a few stones furnished was a turtle and a small 1 m large blacktip reef shark. For 300 rupees (7.5 euros) per person are too much!

  • Nice fish but the décor is to review, it has aged. No sharks when we went there, but a reduction on the price of admission to compensate.

  • A small aquarium with especially beautiful turtles and 2 morays. Our visit to especially was embellished with the good reviews of the guide with the meeting of food which has much more to children. Do if you are in the corner.

  • Beautiful healthy fish in clean tanks. It was very nice to be able to ID the fish we saw snorkeling. Most of them were there. More tank are being installed. Will definitely visit again on our next trip.
  • Quite small but for once a while is quite nice to see. Has a small cafe and a souvenir shop. Nice variety of Mauritius marine animals. Good for kids and family-friendly. However check well openinh hours before going. Has parking spots and very close to the beach.
  • Not a bad little aquarium, and a great spot to spend an hour or so with the family. There are regular shark feedings so check the schedule on their website before you go. Remember you're on a tiny island with few resources and manage your expectations and you won't be disappointed.
  • Lots of rare fish that i have never seen before. I enjoyed the big shark tank
  • Not so great. Something so small. You'd rather go out in the deep sea.
