  • 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 »
  • 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.
