Brilliant sea life center so much to see and do loved the feeding times especially the Penguins Lots to see interactive ponds and computer activities
We live in Hawkes Bay and my son really wanted to go to the aquarium, it cost $40 for 1 adult and 2 children, it didn't take long to do the round and we were out.....I thought it was over priced to be honest.
With areas dedicated NZ Dinosaurs, Kiwis, Penguins, Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish - this aquarium presents a more comprehensive story of New Zealand...skewed to inquisitive minds. It is inviting, interactive and flows smoothly from one zone to another. The kids we saw there were encouraged to touch the exhibits and actually sit on some of the displays. The children were all... 更多
Well laid out. Feeding time is great if you keep going round on the walkway. The scuba diver has Rays eating from his hand and the fish just mob him. Great views of the sharks. Penguin feeding time a bit of a "zoo" but hang on afterwards and the more reluctant Penguins come out to play.
On behalf of my group of 27 snrs, I would like to say a great big Thank you to Brenda & Jake for making our visit extra special.

Being locals, we have the kid multi pass. This is great value for money, as this is a regular, cold, wet day activity. The preschooler loves it, especially feeding time with the penguins and the early dive show. As a one off place to visit it is a tad expensive for what is on offer. A nice way to spend... 更多
Thanks for the feedback. Annual ‘Friends’ memberships are a great, cost effective option for both locals and frequent visitors. 更多
This place is great well worth the visit , and a credit to Hawkes Bay. The fish are amazing , and the fish feeding was great to watch , our overseas visitor loved the Kiwi birds .
Appreciate the positive feedback and it’s wonderful to hear that everyone had a great time! 更多
This is a well set out aquarium. It's not the biggest or most exciting we have been to, but well worth a visit, especially if it's a wet day. Great to see Kiwi's anywhere and yes, they have the at this aquarium.
Thank you for visiting and commenting. 更多
I do hope this place has an important scientific function as it did not comprehensive with the likes of Kelly Tarleton's. It's good and well worth a visit. There cannot be many aquariums where the highlight of your visit is watching two kiwi copulating.
We visited whilst stopping in Napier from cruise ship, made it in time for one of the three daily penguin feedings. Lovely to watch and that these are all rescue animals. Enclosure has sections where you can see below water too! Not much space for people though so get there well before the feeding session to ensure you can see.... 更多
Thank you for visiting. We hope you had a wonderful cruise and enjoyed the rest of your visit to Napier. 更多
Spent a very interesting wet afternoon here. Lots of exhibits not just fish. This was the nearest I got to Kiwis, only inches away behind glass but very clear, in all the time I was in New Zealand. The penguins are cute and the walk through fish tunnel is great especially at feeding time. Well worth a visit.
Nothing better on a wet day than a visit to the Aquarium. Thank you for taking the time to visit... 更多
This aquarium made me a little concerned regarding the way we treat our wildlife. I enjoy a zoo or aquarium as much as the next person but some of the enclosures seemed very small for the size of the animal it contained particularly the big turtle and some of the big fish. Enjoyable but not worth the entry fee.
I went here over the Easter weekend and most things in Napier were closed. It's a pretty small aquarium. The highlight would definitely be the penguins and the underwater walkway. There were a few sharks and rays in there. They also had a kiwi area, there was one that I could see when I was there. Unlike some places it... 更多
The kiwi really are amazing, and a significant part of the Aquarium. We are very pleased that they make such... 更多
