Me and my boyfriend went there for about two hours during our visit in Biarritz. It was really nice, the staff was really friendly and helpful and knew good English (at least the ones in the reception). You get to walk through “caves” at the...More

Nice view of Seals playing outdoors. Big shark tank as well, can be viewed from lots of angles. Nice variety of fish. Price not too bad (about €15 when I went).

Took the 5yr and 7yr old there for a visit during our day trip to Biarritz. Smaller than the Oceanarium at Lisbon but still a good way to occupy the little ones (older kids/teenagers may probably be less interested) for 1-2hours. My kids were fascinated...More

With a son obsessed with sharks, a visit here was a must. Lovely Art Deco building, concentrating on a few specialities rather than cramming every species in. Plenty of open spaces, an interesting display of types of fishing from line to trawling which was great...More

Hello I guess you came during a rainy day... the Aquarium is more comfortable to visit when the weather is good... or at the opening (9.30) or in the evening (from 18.00 to midnight).

Very crowded but worth a visit. Very interesting with many things to see. Out favourites were the upside down dozing seals and the turtle.

So many of the tanks seemed crowded. The seals didn't seem to have much space and the space they did have was just white concrete with no shade. I've seen other aquariums where they try to give the seals a space resembling their natural space....More

This place was really cool. If you like museum type activities with an interactive feel to it, this is a great place. And the kids will love it anyways because you can see all kinds of fishes and maritime life. You can easily spend 1-2...More
