The whole family had fun in general. Beautiful aquariums with a lot of different species. At set times you can watch certain shows outside. The only downside for me was the loss of power (all day) they had the day we visited, only the generators were working. The corridors were lighted a minimum and we could barely see certain fishes. I heard the jellyfish area is completely stunning but we just saw a big whole nothing in the dark. No discount were offered but at least they told us at the entrance. They said we could see with the generator lights though... but really, only the aquarium filters were working and a few litghts here and there for security matter.

Obviously lots of fish to see, but really enjoyed the polar bears, walrus, and seals. Nice indoor and outdoor viewing areas and some outdoor shows.

This little out of the way aquarium is a nice place to visit during your stay in Quebec City. There is a daily shuttle bus from the city, but you cannot chose your time to arrive or depart. I ventured there on the city bus, which was a shorter ride than I was told, even with the road works. Not the greatest aquarium, I was in and out within 2 hours, but it's better than some and definitely better than nothing! The Depths Pavilion building- where the jellyfish and most aquatic animals are- was somewhat disorienting. There are mirrored walls and not enough light - I walked into a wall on more than one occasion as there were lots of people- even on a week day morning. I was able to see the polar bear on a very warm summer day, who didn't seem to be too happy with the weather and seemed forced to be on display. Still, it's a nice treat from the city, and a bit of nature. The half mile walk from the aquarium to the bus stop could be daunting for some- it's all uphill. just make sure to take a break if needed.

And our family – – two teens and two grannies spent a few hours at the aquarium. We mostly enjoyed the jellyfish and the amazing seahorses , But the kids also liked touching the stingrays and other sea life. A beautiful layout on a beautiful day, we were also enchanted by the walruses– – much bigger than anticipated. Had a lovely lunch at the cafe. If you've been to many aquariums, not sure this is a "must," but kids will enjoy it.

It's a great place for a family visit. Great play park for the kids. Great showcase of different fish, reptiles and marine mammals. They must be lonely cause there is only one of each in some areas.
