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

  • This is a small place and luckily we stayed nearby as I would not have wanted to travel for hours to get here. The place is very clean and lots of info about local fish, turtles,sharks and eels. Only ...  more »

  • 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.
  • I'm not a big fan of animals/marine life in captivity. However, the aquarium was very clean clean, well maintained and the staff was knowlegable about the marine life under their care.
  • Must visit place if you are in Mauritius and want to explore more about sea life. A bit small. Will not take you more than n hour for the tour.
  • Enjoyable short trip. It's small but nice selection of tanks with different fish etc. Turtles were amazing. No sharks when we visited. Time your visit for feeding time if you can. Max one hour.
