Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium Auckland Reviews
Fun for the family. Jul 27, 2012
Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium is located downtown of Auckland on the water front.
The cost is quite expensive but if you get your tickets online you can save up to 20%, we had a vouchure from a guied book we picked up at the airport which gave us 10% of the ticket price.
The aquarium has over 30 animal exhibits which includes the largest Antarctic penguin colony and has brilliant underwater viewing tunnels. The aquarium is split into 8 differnt areas; Scott base, Antarctic Ice Adventures (home to the pengiuns), Southern Ocean Discovery, Stingray bay, Interactive Zone (has lots of touch pools), Shark tunnel, Ocean discovery (has over 1500 fish), Fish gallery (fish found around New Zealand) and Seahorse kingdom.
There is also the oppotunity to dive with the sharks. This can be done either in a cage or with out the cage. I saw some people doing the shark dive with out the cage.
Kelly Tarltons also has a cafe, gift shop and an area where they take your photo with a shark in the back ground.
We had great time, looking at all the sea life and learning about the animals that live in and around New Zealand.
