  • A nice aquarium, but nothing amazing. Kind of run down looking in some spots. Can be done within two hours. Nice touch tank with manta rays and other little creatures. The walruses blowing bubbles aga...  more »
  • Polar bears, seals and even Arctic fox point. Besides them there's a sector only of jellyfish and marine waters.

  • Much we enjoyed our visit. Nice variety of fish and animals. For the price paid, we find that it's worth to go there. If you have a stay in Quebec City, the aquarium is a must.

  • We went on a rainy day, thinking it would be all indoors, so we didn’t get to enjoy all of the outdoor areas and shops as much as we would have on a sunny day. The cashier did let us know that 40% of the exhibits were outdoors, so I will give them credit for notifying the guests beforehand. All-in-all this is a solid activity for kids and the price is quite reasonable ($55 taxes in for two adults and a three year old). My wife was also very impressed with the private room they had for infant feeding - one of the best she’s used.
  • We visited on a rainy day and they warned us that the park is 40% outside. Despite the drizzle it was an enjoyable experience. The value was good for a family of five. Active areas are available outside for children to blow off steam. Parking was free which was a really nice surprise. The animals appeared active and healthy.
  • Very cool aquarium. Kids loved going there and seeing everything. The sting ray pond was exciting for them and they had fun touching them. The best part was watching the sea lions for kids, they were thrilled just to watch them swim around and see them swap pools between them. We went on a cooler day and was rainy a bit so the outside shows were canceled.
  • After reading some of the negative reviews I had my thoughts but was I wrong. It was awesome. My 2 year old loved to see all the fishes, polar bears and all other animals and creatures that they have. We went on one of the hottest day of the year (32 + humidity) and the polar bears were enjoying there swim in the enclosure. My son loves the little splash pad they have spend 1 1/2 hour in that area. The food was decent priced. Overall our experience was awsome. Would go back and recommended it.
  • Small aquarium but still fun to visit. I've been to the Toronto aquarium, Vancouver aquarium. This one is the smallest by far. But I still have a good time seeing the seals show and the polar bear. There's a nice picnic area for the family outside. Plan this visit on a nice weather, plenty of stuff needs walking and sitting outside.
