  • We had the chance to chat with the owner Richard of his passion and the origin of the aquarium. It was a great moment, with an extraordinary situation, we insisted on a "hug" between a muraine and another species of fish. Which may seem the improbable and amazing to those who know so little fish. The highlight of this aquarium is the only one on the island. Just a tip for the french who wish to visit must be in context in france we are one of the countries in the world with an exceptional quality of aquarium. So don't visit wishing to find our aquariums to the idendique but in the replacing in the context of Mauritius. For us it was a very good time.

  • Very interesting aquatic life. Had sharks and turtle years ago but not sure if they still have. Place is sort of small thus visit might last for 15-20 minutes.
  • Bit small and apart from the sea turtles they only had fish you can see when snorkeling. The tickets weren't expensive but still, was expecting more
