  • A fun time in Noumea to visit the aquarium. There are even dark rooms with lighting to see the deep water fish coloring. Very well done.  more »
  • This Aquarium is extremely well thought out and presented. The collection of marine life is very extensive and well described for ease of identification. The viewing areas are spacious and well lit.....  more »
  • Bit like a maze to get around. Tanks were quite small but they had a good selection of different species of fish. Outside turtle enclosure was a bit sad. Hopefully they return the fish to the see.....  more »

  • Really enjoyed our visit. We came on a cruise ship and were in Noumea on a Sunday. Most of the shops were closed so we ended up at the aquarium. We had a great time. Very reasonably priced which was nice compared to all the other inflated tourist prices around the city. The turtle enclosure was the best part.
  • This is by far the smallest aquarium I've been to. However, despite it being small it has quite a large collections of different marine species. Quite enjoyed it as it is nice and quiet unlike other aquariums in bigger cities. The entrance of the aquarium is somewhat obscured, just a tiny path through the fence and trees... Could easy miss it if you aren't paying attention.
  • The refurb is great ,I could have spent all day in the aquarium room so peaceful and colourful
  • Nice way to spend an afternoon and learn about marine life of NC. The pond with turtles was a highlight.
  • Amazing little aquarium...loved seeing the aquatic life! 🙂
