Discover the variety of the great blue sea at Mauritius Aquarium. As home to a large number of species of fish, including crown squirrelfish, batfish, clownfish, and butterfly fish, the colorful array here offers a good introduction to the country's marine environment for younger visitors, with informative displays about the island's surrounding ecosystem. Witness the activity at feeding time, when trained members of staff hand-feed giant moray eels, sharks, and sea turtles.

  • We have visited the aquarium with my 3 years old son, and it was an extreamly poor experience. I had to be suspicious when we saw at the entrance that there is no option for refund. There were small t...  more »
  • The visit is worth it to see or review the fish that we had the chance to see in mask and snorkel and those that we could not see. Thank you very much to Richard for his explanations. Michelle and Sandrine Dede

  • Very welcoming and helpful team. Very much effort put forward by the team. Had a great lunch at the cafeteria as well. A great variety of dishes offered.
  • Visited April 2018, nice and clean. Healthy looking fish. We missed the feeding time though. But was a good place to stop by and watch the turtles and other fish. There is also a little coffee shop and a big open area to sit and picknick if you want I suppose. Oh yes I almost forgot there is also a little curio shop.
  • It wasn't what we expected. The place is really small and need a lot of TLC. Definitely not worth the money, probably could charge a quarter of current price for what you get. The fish has plenty of space to move which is a plus though.
  • Beautiful healthy fish in clean tanks. It was very nice to be able to ID the fish we saw snorkeling. Most of them were there. More tank are being installed. Will definitely visit again on our next trip.
  • Nice place but could have been better... needs a renovation with more interactive activities
