Discover the variety of the great blue sea at Mauritius Aquarium. As home to a large number of species of fish, including crown squirrelfish, batfish, clownfish, and butterfly fish, the colorful array here offers a good introduction to the country's marine environment for younger visitors, with informative displays about the island's surrounding ecosystem. Witness the activity at feeding time, when trained members of staff hand-feed giant moray eels, sharks, and sea turtles.

    It's a nice place to see the local life. But it's not amazing. Worth a visit. Kids will enjoy. Make sure you match the feeding time. The place is small and requires maximum of am hour.

    Not worth going there...there's only some fishes and tortoises in the aquarium... Its only about 15mins admiring these aquatic animals... It doesn't match the advertising pictures.. Won't advice people to go there...rather have a good time at Mont Choisy beach instead.

    Very poor compared to what it used to be in thr past. Very few fish and marine life. Quite disappointed.

    Nice place to bring kids. Don't expect to spend a whole day there. The tour can be done in 30-45min. Quite expensive. But I guess it does cost a lot to run something like this.

    Small but a nice stop if it's on your way, I wouldn't plan a special trip just for it. The surrounding area is quite nice and full of tourists
