  • Came from a cruise from Sydney Australia and was not disappointed. The vast variety in species of fish and sharks was incredible to watch. I swear I could’ve stayed there to watch for hours on end. The kind tour lady was very informative and answered almost every question you could have possibly asked. The turtles was my favourite part.
  • Great place to visit especially with kids. Well priced and affordable for the whole family. They have a variety of sea life and a dedicated turtle pond. All the signage is in French and English, and all the staff can help you even if your not a French speaker. A must see for any family travelling through the area
  • Second time at this place great for the little ones. Affordable and a pleasant experience. Not as big as some major work City aquariums but for noumea it’s a perfect size. Also has a nice size gift shop and it takes visa.
  • Awesome aquarium - not too big, not all flashy and put on - but very practical -0 some great information displays and fun facts for young and old.
  • Very high value for money. Great aquarium! A must see in my opinion.
