National Aquarium Of New Zealand - Review

This water zoo has been Napier’s top tourist draw for over 30 years, attracting over 250000 annually in it’s initial days, when the population of Napier itself was only 5000. 1500 animals spread across fifty species have been attracting much attention to this oceanarium. A travelator circles underneath this man made water paradise, through sharks, stingrays and crocs. A lot of the displays are dedicated to Kiwi species, one of the rare specialisations of that kind in the world. Special features to check out include the Japanese Garden, the Australian Outback, and the African Rift Valley.

  • Great place to visit. Really interesting. Fantastic seeing the fish like this. Staff are very friendly and helpful, put on a great show at animal feeding times. Unfortunately the coffee and gift shops are freezing not a great place to sit in and eat or have a browse through.

  • It was okay. Good thing we had vouchers for two free passes. Costed $60 for the rest of us. Staff get a 5 out of 5, as were friendly and knowledgeable. Kids still enjoyed seeing the aquatic creatures, and I hope to swim with the sharks one day, as it looked really fun :-) Got a few things from the gift shop, and next time we will try something from the cafe.

  • Great place for the the family, or friends, to spend a few hours. Check for penguin and shark feeding times for an extra special experience. A great venue if you want to see a Kiwi or two as well.

  • We use to be paying family as friends of the aquarium. We been on a few school trips in the past 12 months - 18 months. We went again today out of desperation of school holidays and what a disappointment. It just keeps getting worse. I can not believe the review on here. Peole must be so easily pleased.

  • What a fabulous experience. The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable. The children absolutely loved coming here. We'll be back for sure.
