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.
Expensive, we saw our first Kiwi bird. Interesting.
I really enjoyed our visit to the aquarium. They had a great variety of aquatic animals - my favourites were the fire bellied newts!
Interesting, fun to see some native fish. Can swim with sharks which is cool. Got to see Kiwi.
Cool stuff and animals to see but quite small. Price was reasonable, only big highlight was that we got to see some real life Kiwi.

Very expensive, not just only fish, we saw our first kiwi.
Fantastic aquarium, under the water viewing tunnel, very hands on for kids, informative.
Nice aquarium, met with the kiwi bird.
Good if you want to see New Zealand's Underwater World. Some animals had a bit small living spaces but mostly okay. Also really cool to see the kiwi bird.
We go inside to see the kiwi's at the nighthouse - very cute. But the fishes looked not very good and happy - not enough space for all the animals (sharks, penguins etc), price and info's good.
Old! But we have seen kiwi for the first time!

Had a good time with two kids here. A tank of real coral was an unexpected treat as was the blue penguins.
Really nice and interesting exposition with salt and freshwater aquariums, undersea tunnel with sharks and mantos, reptiles. Unfortunately second exposition with ocean mammals was closed.
Swim with the sharks is an amazing experience.

Swimming with the sharks - best thing we ever saw.

Best to go at feeding time. Amazing experience to have sharks and stingrays swim above and around you.
Very nice our experience.Fine rooms, fine fish and a good show from the fish feeding diver.
Small but informative, and lots of different animals. Giant squid was cool - so was the big Sea Turtle. The kiwi exhibit is the main draw.
Small but interesting aquarium.
Not value for money. Been to much better aquariums.
Great feeding of sharks with an amazing underwater view.
Great if you have kids. my nephew aged 3 loved it!
Small. Quite boring. Sushi train was good. Good for families.
You can see it in an hour. Sharks only fed once a day and we missed it. Good to see a kiwi. A little expensive for what it is
Pretty cool!! I got to touch a turtle
