Auckland Sea Life Aquarium Excursion Reviews

Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium, formerly Underwater World, is an innovative public aquarium with an impressive collection of New Zealand's marine life on display.
All tour are very expensive and very overrated.
Sail Date: January 2019
All tour are very expensive and very overrated. The aquarium was interesting but not for the price we were charged. I could have taken my family of four on a free shuttle and entry would have been $60 US, not $260.

Amazing penguin colony, then the underwater walk was nice. A good variety of sea creatures including plenty of evil looking tiger sharks.

Attending Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium and seeing all those wonderful little penguins right up close absolutely made this whole 13 day trip worthwhile. Would travel back to Auckland just to revisit.

This was the best Aquarium you will ever go.
Sail Date: November 2013
This was the best Aquarium you will ever go. Better than Monterrey, Steinhart, Aquarium of the Pacific, and other Sea Lifes around the world. The cool part is the penguins. They are so big and the babies are so cute.
