What You'll Get
Visit: SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium, 23 Tamaki Drive Ōrākei, Auckland Central, Auckland 1071 New Zealand
The cage is submerged in our Shark tank, home to School, Sand Tiger, Wobbegong and Broadnose Sevengill sharks, so you're guaranteed to come face-to-face with one of our friendly sharks during this experience. Through the cage's clear Perspex bottom and the mesh walls, you can marvel at sharks, stingrays and other fish from New Zealand's coastal waters swimming around you.
With no diving experience required, and all the instruction you need from our experienced guides, this snorkel experience is the easiest, safest and most exciting way to meet the often feared predators of the deep! The experience takes approximately 1 hour - 15 minutes, approximately 25 minutes of which are spent snorkeling with the sharks. Prior to taking the plunge you will get a behind-the-scenes peek at Kelly Tarlton's before being briefed for your encounter.
Just bring your swimming gear and wear closed footwear. All other gear will be provided.
General admission to SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's and videos of your experience are included in the price!
