We called here on a wet day in Biarritz so it was a little crowded. Good selection of tanks to view. My five year old son enjoyed it. Well worth a trip. Good value family pass. Easily passed away three hours here.

Nice experience. We visited it on a rainy day. A lot to see. It is even open until midnight, which seemed to be a good visiting time because it was not busy at all.

Good variety of different fishes and other ocean life creatures. Interesting show on the third floor unfortunately in French still interesting to watch especially for children.

An impressive aquarium. The sharks are the highlight, as usual. You get close to them and can walk underneath them in a glass tunnel. The aquarium is not over-priced. Other exhibits are interesting and attractive.
