NEW: Summer Activities

Experience summer on-the-ice with the world's largest Antarctic penguin colony display.

For the first time ever in New Zealand, Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium is giving visitors the opportunity to experience an on-the-ice encounter with the world's largest Antarctic penguin colony.

NEW: On the Ice Experience!

The aquarium's newest interactive experience - On the Ice - will see visitors suited up in Antarctic snow gear to explore the brand new, snow-filled penguin enclosure and the opportunity to get up close and personal with the magnificent King and Gentoo Penguins.

Check out the On the Ice Experience!

NEW: Behind the Scenes Tours!

There's also the chance to gain exclusive access on a Behind the Scenes Tour and see how everything works behind the scenes at the newly re-launched aquarium, with a chance to feed the fish, discover the animal quarantine area, dive tanks and much more in new daily Behind The Scenes tours taking place.

Check out the Behind the Scenes Tours!

Free Kids' Quiz Trail

Kids will be given the opportunity to take part in a brand new free interactive quiz trail, a fun and educational way to learn about the amazing animals and exhibits at Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium.

All this plus the amazing new walk through penguin encounter, New Zealand's largest collection of sharks and stingrays, the world's only display of Spiny Sea Dragons, and a new live jelly fish display.

And don't forget Shark Dive Xtreme and Shark Cage - the only ways to get REALLY up close with our huge sharks and rays.

Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium is the place to be this summer!
