Fodor's Expert Review Kelly Tarlton's Sealife Aquarium
This harborside marine park—the creation of New Zealand's most celebrated undersea explorer and treasure hunter—offers a fish's-eye view of the sea. A transparent tunnel, 120 yards long, makes a bewitching circuit past moray eels, lobsters, sharks, and stingrays. You can also have an encounter with King and Gentoo penguins and their keepers in their icy home, and take home photos to prove it. This attraction is popular and limited to four people a day so it pays to book ahead.
