Kelly Tarltons Underwater World

Price from £19 per person

Set on the waterfront of Auckland City on Ohaku Bay, just moments from the famous Mission Bay beach, the NEW Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium is one of Auckland's Top Visitor Attractions!

Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium showcases over 30 live animal exhibits, from over 80 different species in spectacular habitat displays, including the world's largest Antarctic penguin colony and amazing underwater viewing tunnels.

Descend underground and pass through a replica of Captain Scott’s hut from his 1912 South Pole expedition before walking through a colony of King and Gentoo penguins. A conveyor belt then takes you along a curved glass tunnel as ocean life surrounds you. Watch giant stingrays glide overhead, spot moray eels lurking in the rocks and come face-to-face with sharks! Stingray Bay is a 350,000 litre open topped tank containing two species of stingray and other smaller fish species including kingfish, blue mao mao and "Phoebe", a 250 kilogram short-tailed stingray. Seahorse Kingdom contains two tropical marine tanks, piranha, an octopus, seahorses, crayfish and pufferfish, among others. Tour concludes at clients’ discretion, at Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World.
