Fodor's Expert Review Aquarium de la Guadeloupe

Elsewhere on Grande-Terre Zoo/Aquarium
Unique in the Antilles, this aquarium in the marina near Pointe-à-Pitre is a good place to spend an hour. Its motto is "Visit the sea." The well-planned facility has an assortment of tropical fish, crabs, lobsters, moray eels, coffer fish, and some live coral. It's also a turtle rescue center, and the shark tank is spectacular. A restaurant serves kid-friendly fare, snacks, salads, pastas, etc. A small shop stocks marine toys and souvenirs. The aquarium also offers twice-daily half-day ecotours via small boats that travel through the mangroves, reefs, and a lagoon, with a biologist guide and a diving instructor on board. Snorkeling gear is included, and kids are more than welcome.
