The Mauritius Aquarium welcomes you to a unique experience of relaxation and discovery!
Situated on the North West of Mauritius, in the charming small village of Pointe Aux Piments, the Mauritius Aquarium offers a unique experience. A leisurely stroll through the five well laid out principal buildings surrounded by a tropical garden, allows its visitors to discover the rich aquatic life which inhabits the coastal and pelagic waters of Mauritius.
The various species of marine life are grouped in well-lit tanks and pools which makes it possible to observe, at eye-level, the endless ballet enacted by our island surrounding eco-system. A truly fantastic and enchanting sight.
The aquarium is home to a large number of species, including the Crown squirrelfish and the Batfish as well as clownfish, butterfly fish, lobsters and crabs, to name but a few. An added attraction offered by the Mauritius Aquarium is the possibility of witnessing the feeding sessions which take place daily at 11:00 am and 15:00 pm. It is not every day that one sees, Giant Morays sharks and sea turtles, within arm’s reach, being fed by hand.
The Aquarium has adopted an ecologically-friendly system, known as a closed system, which involves the treatment and recycling of the seawater in the circuit linking the tanks, thus minimizing the environmental impact of the installation and its operation.
