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.

  • This aquarium is quite small but it's definitely worth a visit. There's such a wide variety of fishes and there's also sea turtles and sharks. A big shout out to Richard who was our guide! He was very...  read more »
  • When looking in the Grand Baie area for something different to look at we saw the aquarium and decided to have a look. It was not expensive to get into and was very clean and presentable. There is not...  read more »

  • A very basic aquarium which can be visited if you have kids and nothing else to do on the island. Tickets are on the higher side. Parking is free and they do have a small stall for refreshments within the campus. Souvenir shop is just before the exit. Bon Voyage.
  • Tickets very expensive and not soo many fishes . It's only a 10 minutes visit for Rs 300 rupees. They are doing just business. I don't suggest any one to go there.better you take a glass bottom boat ride it's much more better.
  • Nice fishes but only few tanks to watch + pool with turtle and small sharks. BE CAREFUL! All the pics in google with tunnel aquarium are fake! There is no tunnel aquarium, no interactions no attractions like this!!
  • Good place to take kids. They have a large fish tank which has tortoise, small sharks and lots of other varieties of fish. There is an entry fee which is common for locals and tourists.
  • Terrible. Overpriced at Rs300 and had nothing more than a few fish tanks. Can see more at a pet shop forfree
