Sea aquarium La Rochelle

The sea aquarium in La Rochelle is one of the largest in Europe.

Oceans and seas

In just over 2 hours, you will learn all about the world’s largest waters (Atlantic, Mediterranean, tropical waters, ...) and more than 12,000 different sea creatures. You will encounter the strangest of types: Clownfish, Stonefish, Sunfish, Harlequin Sweetlips and Parrotfish. Sharks are not lacking either! New attractions and exhibitions are regularly organized in the hall.


Want to take a break? Go to the second floor. The restaurant here has a panoramic view of the old harbour of La Rochelle. You can also visit this restaurant without going to the aquarium. There is also a nice shop with all kinds of souvenirs. And if you need it: There are strollers available at the aquarium.
