The staff are really friendly. But too expensive for what you get. $82 for 30 minutes of snorkelling with really, really small sharks. Not enough space for the fish and other animals.

Napier Aquarium is the best place to see Kiwi! They were running around, squawking! Well priced and the perfect size with a brilliant combination of information to read and animals to watch.

We had a good family fun morning here. Watching the sharks and penguins being fed. Staff put on a good show. Loved seeing the Kiwi birds too. Next door to a great playpark on the beachfront.

Unfortunately, the cafe was closed. More than only fish to see such as alligators.

Great aquarium with many different animals. Nice to watch the penguins at feeding time.

Even though it does not look to be very special from the outside, this place offers a lot of knowledge and interesting traits about the deep ocean, especially the consequences of environmental pollution. Thumbs up!

Disappointed, very small for a National Aquarium.

We spent almost two hours there primarily because of watching the penguins and marine turtle. There are quite a lot of things to discover for kids, but if you are still kids at heart, you will enjoy it here.
