Kelly Tarlton’s Antarctic Encounter and Underwater World is a world-class visitor attraction based in Auckland, New Zealand. It combines two fascinating environments – the ocean and the Antarctic – offering a myriad of opportunities to get up close and personal with the wonderful creatures that inhabit these largely unexplored areas of our planet.

The heart of Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World is a 110 metre long transparent waterproof tunnel that allows visitors to view an abundance of marine life whilst travelling on a moving walkway. There are two tanks through which the tunnel passes. Around 2,000 fish, not to mention some rather large sharks, are only centimetres from a curious nose pressed against the acrylic walls.

The Antarctic Encounter offers a journey through a freezing climate of real snow and ice – all viewed from a Snowcat, which is heated to ensure passenger comfort! Visitors first look through a replica of Captain Robert Falcon Scott’s Antarctic hut, complete with authentic memorabilia, and move on to see penguins frolicking only metres away.
