This was really cool! They give you a GoPro to take in the shark cage with you, so you get to film your own adventure. The staff was super friendly, too. When I showed up for my appointment, I was informed that no one had contacted them and let them know that I was scheduled for that day, but they were really helpful and offered to have me come back the next day, which worked great for me. I wasn't happy with Viator for that part, but the staff made up for it with their great customer service! If you book this, make sure that you re-confirm directly with the aquarium so that you'll for sure get the dive that you scheduled.

Our party of 3 adults visited the Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium and enjoyed it very much. There are many exhibits and displays that will entertain kids of all ages.The penquins were especially interesting and it was feeding time which was great.
The shuttle from downtown was very helpful and ran on schedule as advertised. The experience was well worth the time and money.

We really enjoyed this activity, especially the Antarctic Encounter with the penguins inside their icy enclosure.
The snow cat ride is no longer available.

Very interesting aquarium. They provide a free shuttle from the Auckland waterfront to their site. You can't miss the shuttle it has a giant shark head on the front.

Love it. For first time snorkellers, do this. You get a go pro, flash card and coffee/hot chocolate included in the price. I recommend this and the extreme dive where it is cageless. I did the shark cage. It is hard to maneuver but I still had fun.
