Kids will love exploring all of the thirteen different zones in our unique underwater world that is full of magical discovery and adventure.
They can experience what it’s like to walk along the bottom of the ocean in our huge shark tunnel, where they’ll find different species of sharks swimming overhead, as well as many other sea creatures that are native to New Zealand waters.
There’s an opportunity for them to show off their creative side in our Amazing Creations zone that is proudly supported by Crayola. They can draw and colour in their own sea creature and watch it come to life on the huge interactive projection wall - cool, huh?
Let them blow off some steam in Shipwreck Shores - our shipwreck-themed playground. There’s a splash table, soft play area, a sea cave crawl adventure and a chill-out zone. Can you find the hidden fish tank inside?
What’s even more amazing is that SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s Aquarium is home to not one, but two, exclusive New Zealand experiences.
- It is the only place in New Zealand that has a colony of Sub-Antarctic penguins (the largest in the Southern Hemisphere too, we might add)
- It is the only place in New Zealand that rehabilitates rescued turtles. Get up close and personal with our penguins on an Antarctic Ice Adventure and discover how we care for our rescued turtles in Turtle Bay.
