Not best in the market, but at least a good visit for a rainy day. Just a little overpriced but quite good. A lot of species and good selection of different zones. Building is also a good visit itself and good design of space.

It is a small aquarium with a few fish you would not see anywhere else. Seals are fun to see, though. Watching seals is an attraction in itself. But apart from that, do not expect to see many unusal species.

Wouldn't go without kids. The aquarium is not very big so it is worth it if you take the kids and spend a little time there.

Not too long and an ok price for what it is (cheaper than big city equivalents). Very good variety of sea life from Sharks to Seals. We went on a rainy Saturday.

Bonjour , Je n'en ai pas vu mais je n'ai pas cherché non plus. Je ne pense franchement pas qu'ils soient équipés. Vous devriez les appeler directement pour plus de certitude.
