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.

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 окру��ающих 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.

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 :)

This was a nice break from the big city sites, but the variety of exhibits were somewhat limited.

Quite disappointed to be honest, I felt like I'd missed a whole chunk out, but I hadn't. The thing in the penguins wasn't on, which was one of the main reasons I wanted to go, to get close to them. I was in and out in an hour.

The Antarctic penguin exhibit pictured was the highlight of Kelly Tarlton's for me. The penguins are SO cute! However, other than the penguins, Kelly Tarlton's is much like other aquariums in other major cities around the world, so I'd only go if you're excited about seeing penguins.
