A propos de l'Aquarium - Aquarium La Rochelle

the Aquarium

In the city centre, across from the old port,
explore one of the largest private aquariums
in Europe.

In 3 million litres of seawater, home to everything from fragile jellyfish to fascinating sharks,
you can embark on a unique journey to dream and learn about the sea.

A journey into the heart of the Ocean

In the space of two hours, visit the heart of the ocean, set off to see more than 12,000 marine animals, and let us surprise you with the biodiversity of the Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Tropics. 


Bonus: The audio guide (for adults or for kids) with all its anecdotes... meaning sea life will hold no secrets for you! And for children touring the exhibition, a route designed just for them... so that they can learn like the grown-ups. 


Each time you visit, check out the new arrivals and our various free exhibitions in the entrance hall.

The Mémoires d'Océans gift shop offers an original selection of souvenirs.

On the second floor, which can be accessed apart from the paid visit, the restaurant Le Café de l’Aquarium offers a seasonal menu based on organic products, all in a tropical setting.
