Opposite the Old Harbour in La Rochelle, Charente-Maritime, one of the largest private aquariums in Europe invites lovers of the undersea world to get to know its 12,000 residents, who live in some 3 million litres of sea water in an area covering 8,000 m².

Audioguide in hand, for two hours you will experience a real journey under the sea, discovering the diversity of the world's oceans. You can admire many fascinating species, from clownfish to sharks, not forgetting turtles, the star attraction. You will be fascinated by the fabulous defensive powers of all this mysterious wildlife, such as camouflage, armour or poison. You can admire the wonderful ballet of the jellyfish, and wander in the exotic tropical forest where piranhas and carnivorous plants thrive.

La Rochelle Aquarium's mission is to help people discover and understand the undersea environment, but it is also a place of scientific research with its own sea turtle observation and care programme. It is committed to training and raising public awareness for the protection of the ocean environment.
