Witness the activity at feeding time, when trained members of staff hand-feed giant moray eels, sharks, and sea turtles.

  • 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.
