Tour Description

Get picked up from one of our convenient inner city Auckland stops and make your way over to the Mission Bay area to visit SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton’s Aquarium. Home to an impressive collection of sea creatures and interactive activities, Kelly Tarlton’s has been a New Zealand must-do since its opening in the 1980s.

Pop in to see the penguins in the Antarctic display, be mesmerized by the jiggling jellyfish, or gaze up in amazement during your time in the shark tunnel, where you’ll be met by Sandtiger and Broadnose sevengill sharks, swimming directly over you!

Hop back on board our Soaring Kiwi double-decker and discuss the highlights of your trip. You’ll be driven past the picturesque waterfront, which will have your mind wandering as to what sea creatures lie beneath its depths!

The fun doesn’t end here! Spend the rest of your day hopping on and off at your leisure, taking in everything else that Auckland has to offer.
