10 Days 'til Launch!

We're putting the finishing touches to the 8 new themed zones before we launch as Kelly Tarlton's' SEA LIFE Aquarium on 29th September 2012, ready just in time for the school holidays!

The NEW zones include an amazing walk through penguin encounter, home to New Zealand's only colony of Antarctic penguins where you'll get up close to the majestic King and playful Gentoo penguins, New Zealand's first ever jellyfish display and the world's biggest species of stingray. The famous Kelly Tarlton's Shark Tunnel is home to New Zealand's largest collection of sharks and now Maori Pacifica themed and full of original shipwreck artefacts. In the magical Seahorse Kingdom you'll find the world's only display of Spiny Sea Dragons.

And with just days to go, time is running out to claim our special pre-book offer! You can be amongst the first to sea what promises to be the best family day out in Auckland. Simply pre-book your tickets on this website before 28th September for any time between 29th September and 20th December and you'll save $10 on adult tickets and $5 on child tickets.
