Take the Plunge

Get closer than you ever imagined to these amazing predators of the deep!

Snorkelling with sharks at SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium is an exhilarating experience and one of only a few experiences worldwide where you're guaranteed an underwater encounter with sharks.  

NO PREVIOUS DIVING EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!

You'll not only come face-to-fin to Wobbegong, School and Broadnose Sevengill Sharks, you'll also snorkel with other local Auckland marine life. Be submerged with massive stingrays (and we mean MASSIVE) and hundreds of amazing sea creatures with nothing but a cage between you!

Shark Cage Adventure

The cage is submerged in our predator tank so you're guaranteed to have a close encounter of the shark kind, every time. Through the cage's clear Perspex bottom you can marvel at sharks, stingrays and other fish from New Zealand's coastal waters swimming below, or past the mesh walls of the cage - often only feet away. 

This snorkel experience is the easiest, safest and most exciting way to meet the often feared predators of the deep!
