The best aquarium in New Zealand and I have visited on 2 occasions. Certainly worth visiting.

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.
Great place.Antarctic exhibits are fantastic and penquins are a joy!!
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.
Unfortunately we never used it, but many locals told us how good the place is.
We had a great time adults and children, would recommend it to everyone.
Love those penguins, they are just so impressive. Didn't see any from happy feet but they did look good. The aquarium has a lot in it, very impressed. Go there early in the day, very popular can get crowded

I really enjoyed our visit to the Antarctic Encounter. All of the animal life was fantastic! In particular the penguin habitat was really impressive, you can view very closely the penguins and their newborn chicks, and riding in the snowcat was a lot of fun. The historical photographs and films of early Antarctic expeditions were also very interesting. It was worth checking out as part of our trip to New Zealand.
I missed it due to jet lag but many people I spoke to said it was great.
I can also recommend the aquarium on Pier 39 in San Francisco, amazing 2 tunnels of wildlife.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who goes to Auckland. Everything went well with our coupons and it was nice to see the penguins and the sharks ! Spent the whole day here and the driver of the shark bus was fantastic ! Worth the trip here ! Lots to see !

На декабрь месяц стоимость взрослого билета была около 30USD (при покупке через сайт обходится дешевле).
До океанариума (считается, что это всё-таки океанариум, а не аквариум) от центра города можно доехать на автобусе 7010 (ходит от Britomart на Queen Street), либо на бесплатном шатле.
Однако, нужно учесть, что у шатлов есть расписание и ходят они каждые полчаса/час с 9.30 до 15.30 (подробное расписание есть на сайте).
Шатлы отправляются от 172 Quay Street - с учетом того, что на зданиях нет номеров, мы около 15 мин. искали это место! Спрашивали у местных, никто не знал, где это! :-)
Понятно было, что Quay Street перпендикулярна Queen Street, но где этот 172 дом - никто не знал! :-)
В общем, парковка шатлов находится напротив Ferry Building! Становитесь там, не пропустите! :-)
Место стоянки ничем, кроме дорожной разметки bus stop не помечено, но шатлы имеют яркую раскраску и рекламу океанариума, так что, если он уже будет стоять - промахнуться не возможно! :-)
Так же учтите, что вместительность шатлов ограничена, возможно, придется стоять стоя (в пути около 10-15 мин.), либо ждать следующего или ехать на рейсовом автобусе или такси.
Сам океанариум разделен на тематические зоны, в каждой из которых представлены обитатели подводного мира окружающих Новую Зеландию вод Тасманова моря и Тихого океана.
Очень понравилась тематическая зона с пингвинами (Генту и Королевские), в этой же зоне существует отсек для совсем маленьких - пингвинятник, где можно увидеть мам, высиживающих яйца или кормящих маленьких пингвинят :-)
Не оставит равнодушными и большой аквариум с гигантскими скатами! И наконец, движущаяся дорожка с проплывающими над тобой акулами, якорями, сундуками, затонувшими идолами... Море красок и удовольствия! :-)
Great family attraction. Particularly enjoyed the sting ray feeding and the cute penguins. Early history of Antarctica was very interesting. Recommended.
Absolutely loved the penguins. I found all the staff to be very friendly and definitely would recommend a visit.
Really enjoyed the whole experience,especially the penguin viewing

Fun place to see the Penguins. They need mors shuttle buses since it is quite out of the way. Overall good value.

This was great . We arrived at Kelly Tarltons on a Public Holiday ..queue was out to the Carpark, lucky we had a pre-paid tickets, straight ahead of the queues ... and cheaper than everyone else had to pay as well ..always a bonus !! Will always check on VIATOR now for deals and pre-paid bookings :)
