Overview

Please note: this tour is not currently operating.

Experience Auckland’s history, culture and scenic highlights with a half-day morning tour, followed by a trip to Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium.

Travel through the city centre, along notorious Karangahape Road and fashionable Ponsonby, and over the Auckland Harbour Bridge, enjoying views of the Hauraki Gulf and city skyline. See the Viaduct Harbour and Auckland’s famous Queen Street before continuing to the Auckland Domain. The city’s oldest park, the Domain is situated on a 62,000-year-old volcano and is home to tropical gardens, duck ponds and the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Take a short morning tea break (own expense) in Parnell Village, where historic buildings have been transformed into trendy boutiques and specialty shops. Continue your tour of Auckland along the scenic waterfront route of Tamaki Drive to Michael Joseph Savage Memorial Park, high above Mission Bay. Enjoy panoramic views of the city and harbour from this tranquil spot, a monument to one of New Zealand’s most beloved Prime Ministers.

Following the city tour, we visit Kelly Tarlton’s SEA LIFE Aquarium. At this underground visitor attraction, you’ll experience something truly unique. Come face to face with New Zealand’s rich marine environment, including sharks, stingrays, seahorses and other incredible sea creatures. Enjoy an informative encounter with your favourite animals, and journey through the underwater viewing tunnel, the first of its kind in the world.

Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Ice Adventure gives you a rare opportunity to get close to New Zealand’s only colony of Antarctic penguins. Come within arm’s length of the 80-plus colony of King and Gentoo penguins as they waddle on the ice and play underwater. Or journey back in time to Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic hut and see authentic artefacts from Scott’s expeditions. Learn about their discoveries and find out what it was like living in Antarctica, the coldest place on earth!
