Rydges Auckland Hotel
This is one of Auckland’s most famous and rewarding attractions, set on the waterfront ten minutes from the city and moments from the famous Mission Bay beach. The NEW Kelly Tarlton's SEA LIFE Aquarium showcases over 30 live animal exhibits, from over 80 different species in spectacular habitat displays.
The aquarium is home to the world's largest Antarctic penguin colony exhibit, NZ’s largest collection of sharks, giant stingrays, beautiful seahorses, bizarre crustaceans, the world’s only display of Spiny Sea Dragons and amazing underwater viewing tunnels.
You can dive with the sharks – in a cage for those a tad timid or freely with the sharks for the Shark Dive X-treme adventure. You can also head out onto the ice to get up close with the penguins.
