  • A nice little aquarium with reasonable ticket prices, a good way to pass half a day if looking for a change from the pool or beach  more »
  • The aquarium was quite small, but had some interesting marine life. Not too far from where we were staying. Definitely worth a look  more »
  • Visited when on the Spirit cruise to Noumea. We spent a couple of hours wandering through all the exhibits. A lot bigger than we thought & the turtles were great.  more »

  • my experience here waas fantastic, although betteer foo dsex schoices! new caledonia altogether was a gerata experienc
  • Gift shop is pricey & does not accept aussie currency. The fish were great, though.
  • Amazing aquarium as it provides a lot of natural light in and is very people friendly. There is a special room which has neon corals which was amazing. Reasonable too. Takes an hour or less to go through.
  • Must visit if you're in Nouméa. Wonderful aquarium with a rich history of research work.
  • As expected, nice tanks, has an outdoor turtle viewing area. Not very big, no need for more than an hour here. Prices are okay.
