Dive into Mother's Day

This Mother's Day, dive into a world of aquatic wonder at Sea Life Auckland. Give your mum an unforgettable day of marine exploration and delightful discoveries. From the grand opening of the Art Aquarium to encounters with penguins, this guide will help you plan a truly special day.


Meet the Penguins and other sea life

SEA LIFE Auckland Aquarium is home to thousands of captivating marine creatures. It's the perfect destination for a day out in Auckland.


Dive into the Antarctic Ice Adventure and meet our charming King and Gentoo penguins. The majestic King penguins, with their striking plumage and noble presence, are truly mesmerising. The lively Gentoo penguins, known as the fastest underwater swimmers among birds, are sure to steal your heart with their energetic and playful behaviour.


Enhance your visit with a step back in time at our exhibit featuring a replica of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's hut. Complete with authentic memorabilia, this display transports you a century back in time, offering a fascinating insight into life in the world's coldest region. Explore, interact, and connect with the extraordinary stories of Antarctic life with mum at SEA LIFE Auckland Aquarium.

We invite budding Picassos and STEM enthusiasts of all ages to immerse themselves in a unique blend of art and science.


Here, unleash your imagination by creating your very own digital sea creature on our interactive screens. Watch in delight as your creation comes to life, swimming across our expansive projection wall.
