Set on the waterfront of Auckland City on Okahu Bay, just moments from the famous Mission Bay beach, the Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium is one of Auckland's top visitor attractions!
Kelly Tarlton's showcases over 30 live animal exhibits, from over 80 different species in spectacular habitat displays, including the world's largest Antarctic penguin colony exhibit and amazing underwater viewing tunnels.
See New Zealand's unique aquatic life up close, including New Zealand's largest collection of sharks, gigantic stingrays, and beautiful seahorses. The stunning new Seahorse Kingdom exhibit features the world's only display of spiny sea dragons, while other displays include New Zealand's only live jellyfish display, tropical fish, bizarre crustaceans and much, much more.
And don't forget our fantastic Animal Adventures, offering unique and thrilling 'up close' underwater encounters. You can also head out onto the ice to get up close to our amazing penguins with Penguin Discovery.
Allow 1 –2 hours for this attraction. The entrance for Kelly Tarlton's is near our bus stop, but the exit is at the other end of the carpark, so allow a few minutes extra to get back to the bus stop on time.
