National Aquarium of New Zealand

546 Marine Parade, Napier, Hawke's Bay

Discover an exciting world above and below the water at the National Aquarium of New Zealand.

Visit Penguin Cove and watch the Little Penguins feed and play. See sharks, stingrays and fish swimming over you in the 1.5 million litre oceanarium tunnel. Spot New Zealand’s native wildlife – the Tuatara and Kiwi.

And for those who want to see our toothy residents don’t miss the alligator, piranhas and sharks. If you’re feeling a little adventurous then a swim with the sharks is bound to get your blood pumping!

If you’d like to get up close to the animals ask about our range of Close Encounter experiences. Daily feeding times are 10.00am for the reef fish, 2pm for the sharks and the little penguins at 9.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm.

Also stop in to enjoy the all day cooked menu at the Fishbowl Café.
