Noumea Noumea Aquarium Excursion Reviews

Kids will love a visit to the city's state-of-the-art aquarium, which displays a wide variety of sea creatures. Noumea's aquarium is home to unique marine life like a live nautilus, a prehistoric mollusk species that boasts a beautiful shell.

Noumea city highlights and Aquarium tour. Fantastic luxury air conditioned coach, informative tour guide, scenic tour with stops for photo's. The Aquarium is great, small but interesting. Highlight being the turtles! We went on a public holiday so sadly the gift shop wasn't open. Luckily we had already been for an independent walk about the town and had bought some souvenirs in the morning. Really enjoyed the tour overall. Gorgeous place! Read Less

We took the shuttle bus to the centre and booked a Hop on Hop off bus and Aquarium pass. Noumea is French speaking and very French in attitude. The aquarium was lovely but a sign outside stating that it was funded by the European Union was a bit upsetting and worrying. The Hop on Hop off bus to be expected but on a coach rather than a bus and everything else seemed to be shut for the day and it was a Saturday, so it was a Wi Fi card from the local cafe and then back to the ship. A bit disappointing really, something and nothing. Read Less
