Additional Information


Underwater passageways allow you to observe a huge variety of sea life in very large tanks. The large sharks, gliding stingrays and many species of fish found in New Zealand waters, are around you as the moving floor carries you. Antarctic Encounter features live penguins and a recreation of life on the great southern continent. You should allow up to two hours to fully appreciate these combined attractions. There is also a cafe and gift shop available.
