Sea Cave Adventure

Explore the rocky world between surging tides

Telling the stories of the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park

Sea Cave Adventure is a brand new zone inspired by the magnificent wildlife of New Zealand's first and largest marine park.

The Hauraki Gulf Marine Park was established on 27 February 2000 to help stem ecological decline by protecting the Gulf's natural and historic features. Sea Cave Adventure zone is a portal for all our guests to discover the Gulf's marine life, the threats to its future and how they can help protect it.

On your journey you will encounter native octopus, eels, sea stars, crayfish and other native marine species which you will find in our rocky shores. In addition to meeting our incredible sea creatures, there are hands-on experiences at our touch rockpool plus interactive displays and games for the whole family to enjoy!
