Kelly Tarlton's Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World
Underwater passageways allow you to observe a huge variety of sea life in gigantic tanks. Large sharks, gliding stingrays, and many species of fish found in New Zealand waters, are above and beside you as the moving floor carries you along. Feeding time is especially exciting. Antarctic Encounter features live penguins and a recreation of life on the great southern continent. Allow up to two hours to fully appreciate these combined attractions. There is also a cafe and gift shop.
Parking right at entrance and exits, wonderful for the eye to see for both young and old. Section for kids to touch and explore play as they learn. Great ride through artic penguin enclosure. Also a rotating floor moving you around under a mass of different underwater wonders including mantor rays and sharks. But see for yourself. Thanks from a South African tourist
