Get the family together for the best day out at Auckland's top attraction - SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium!

Located on the waterfront of Auckland City at Ōkahu Bay, Kelly Tarlton's is home to thousands of marine animals including the world's largest Sub-Antarctic penguin colony exhibit, sharks, stingrays, jellyfish, seahorse, turtles and more.

Showcasing over 30 live animal displays and hands-on exhibits there is plenty to learn and see making this a fun day out the whole family will enjoy.

Enjoy amazing views of the majestic King Penguins and be entertained by the playful Gentoo Penguins at the Antarctic Ice Adventure. This is New Zealand's only colony of Sub-Antarctic penguins allowing you the rare opportunity to get up close to these magnificent birds.

Take a stroll through the Shark Tunnel where you will have 4 different shark species swimming above and beside you. This is the first curved aquarium tunnel in the world which has now been replicated in aquariums across the globe.

Your kids will love the hands-on experience at the Tidal Touch Pools and the Amazing Creations room where they can draw their own sea creature and have it come to life on a screen. The indoor playground Shipwreck Shores is a big hit with children providing a safe and fun play experience.

Fun Family Day

It’s good for a small country like New Zealand. If you’ve been to Singapore, USA etc and other countries with aquariums it’s going to look very small. There were people there not wearing masks and coughing close to my baby during red level when Omicron is in the community so it’s not recommended during this time as it’s in a small enclosed space. My baby enjoyed it.

🥴

On entrance the lady touched my phone fiddling with it trying to show me a booking page without asking in which ended up seeing things she shouldn’t have. Worst customer service ever

All hype

Really grateful that we didn't pay for this experience. Maybe it's because I'm an adult now or because I'm not getting a day off school... but I remember it being better as a kid. Underwhelming, especially at $41 for an adult.
