Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Sky Tower
The tallest freestanding structure in the Southern Hemisphere, the Sky Tower stands a powerful 1,072 feet and offers spectacular views from its two observation decks and revolving restaurant. Step inside the glass elevator and zoom to the top in a mere 40 seconds. Then venture outside onto the glass-floored main observation deck. All of Auckland's beauty is spread out before you…and right under your feet! On a clear day, panoramic vistas extend over 50 miles, encompassing the Leigh Peninsula, the Great Barrier Island, the Waitakere Ranges and the Bombay Hills.

Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium
Famed New Zealand marine archaeologist and deep-sea diver Kelly Tarlton created this extraordinary aquarium to share his love of the ocean with the world. A uniquely designed moving walkway transports you through clear acrylic tunnels for a firsthand experience of deep-sea life. See New Zealand's only sub-Antarctic penguins in an authentic icy habitat and glimpse a replica of Captain Scott's expedition hut of 1911. In the Underwater World get up close with stingrays, sharks, sea turtles and a host of other creatures while hands-on displays enrich your experience.

North Shore
North Shore is a sprawling Auckland suburb located just north across the Waitemata Harbour, connected by the Auckland Harbour Bridge and the Upper Harbour Bridge. Considered premium real estate, North Shore is an upscale area with beautiful sandy beaches, picturesque views of the sparkling Hauraki Gulf and the Auckland cityscape. North Shore buzzes with activity and in addition to its scenic spots, offers a range of cafes, restaurants, shops and activities.

What you will see along the way:
A scenic, narrated drive takes you through the lovely city of Auckland. You'll travel past one of the city's favorite beaches, Parnell Village, with its colonial-style shops and cobbled courtyards, and the bustling central business district. Enjoy dazzling views as you make a roundtrip crossing over the dramatic Harbour Bridge.

Shopping:
A marine-themed gift shop at Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium teems with souvenirs of your thrilling visit.

Lunch:
During your time at North Shore, choose from many cafes and restaurants at different price points for a pleasant lunch (at your own expense) before heading to the airport.
