To be fair, it's not only for rainy days, just very convenient. I didn't think this aquarium was as good as the one I recently visited in San Sebastián, but it's spread over several levels with seal, turtle and hammerhead shark displays of note. Worth...More

The aquarium itself is relatively good, with the usual suspects found within. The middle floor is unusual - with whale skeletons and local fishing-related artefacts present. Unfortunately for us they were all captioned in French - but I think we got the gist. However it's...More

Spent a couple of hours here wandering round. They have managed to pack a lot in with lots to see. The views from the top are spectacular. Only gripe was it cost 40 euros for 3 of us.

The Aquarium is a very nice place where you can spend a few hours with teens or young children. The shark tank is an ama view. Don't miss the snoring sea lions on the roof.

We called here on a wet day in Biarritz so it was a little crowded. Good selection of tanks to view. My five year old son enjoyed it. Well worth a trip. Good value family pass. Easily passed away three hours here.

Nice experience. We visited it on a rainy day. A lot to see. It is even open until midnight, which seemed to be a good visiting time because it was not busy at all.
