How come this place still be called an aquarium? Even my 2 years old was not impressed by the 30min visit (10min spend watching the one shark and turtle). I will not even say it need a relooking but a complete pull down.

This is a very small aquarium taking perhaps 1 hour to see everything fully. Interesting for children

This aquarium is really quite small and as soon as you've entered, you're already close to exit. However, it's not expensive and nice to do if you have children and want to have a short visit for a beach-break in the afternoon.

Yes the aquarium is dated, but it is good to see a lot of the fish you see when snorkelling around Mauritius and put a name to them.

Visisted the aquarium today with my nieces, 3yrs and 1yr. Really disappointing experience as there is not much to see no one to explain or entertain the children. The price is way too high and in some places the wooden structures are rotten and almost...More

This aquatium is not going to blow your mind, however our little boy really enjoyed it. It's pretty dated and small, but a good way to see local maurituan aquatic creatures. The massive moray eels were a great source of amusement for our 3 year...More
