3 advices for a cheap and smart visit!

During July and August, the Aquarium can be very busy; here are our 3 tips for an optimised visit.

1 – Choose sunny days

Obviously, when the weather is good, we know that our visitors prefer the beach, but one does not exclude the other!

A visit to the Aquarium lasts an average of 1.5 hours and the number of visitors is much lower on sunny days. 

2 – Visit in the morning when it opens

Until 30 September 2022, the Aquarium La Rochelle opens at 9am; be the first to dive in, you’ll have the exhibition all to yourself! 

3 – Favour night-time visits

From 9 July 2022 to 31 August 2022 inclusive, the Aquarium is open every day from 9am to 11pm. On sunny days, after 7pm, the crowds drop, the lights are dimmed and boarding is immediate. 

To avoid waiting at the Ticket Office, we strongly advise you to buy your ticket directly online, on our website. 

Important information:  

On rainy days, the La Rochelle Aquarium is very popular.  

Immediate access to the visit cannot be guaranteed.
