I hopped off the Hop On, Hop Off Explorer Bus from Auckland at the Aquarium, where I spent a couple of hours.
I found it very interesting, and there were two areas I enjoyed most: the penguins in their large artificial snow and ice place and the tunnel with plexi-glas to walk under several sharks swimming around. I was told of a concept which I found very positive: the sharks are kept there for a short time and then released to where they were caught.
For those of us who live inland, away from the sea, the aquariums should be a must; and this one is an excellent choice to see and learn about marine creatures.
