Underwater Observatory Tours

One thing you won’t see when visiting Queenstown are snorkelers in Lake Wakatipu. Not only because the water is alarmingly cold (the average temperature is 48°F), but because the Underwater Observatory allows you to look beneath the lake without even getting your hair wet.

Located along Queenstown’s Main Town Pier, this KJet observatory boasts six large windows where trout, ducks, and 35-pound eels go swimming right past your face. Families with young children will love feeding the ducks and watching them dive for their food, or feeding the writhing schools of trout and watching the chaotic splashes. 

Practical Info

The Underwater Observatory is in the center of Queenstown as is open daily from 8:30am until dusk. There is an admission fee of $5 for adults, $3 for children, or free admission to KJet passengers. Food for the ducks can be purchased on site for $1.
