Latest News: Amazing Creations
There's always something going on at Kelly Tartlon's SEA LIFE Aquarium, including daily scheduled talks and feeds.
Officially opening on 1 December 2016, Amazing Creations - proudly supported by Crayola - is an exciting new zone at Kelly Tarlton's, where you can create your own sea creature and watch it swim.
Your creature will spring to life in a tank right in front of you, before swimming off to join other colourful creations on a huge interactive projection wall.
Every masterpiece will come to life in a tank alongside bright and colourful fish, which reflect the display's four themes - Spots, Stripes, Shapes and Colour.

About The Feeds
It's no easy job feeding these large stingrays who get quite playful when it comes to lunch time; but it is great to watch!
Don't miss the only scheduled penguin feed of the day. During this feed our colony of King and Gentoo penguins receive their breakfast and vitamins from the curation team.
FISH GALLERY FEED:
This is a great opportunity to learn about some of our weird and wonderful creatures - from the venomous Lion Fish and hungry Piranha to our huge Packhorse crayfish.
OCEANARIUM DIVER HAND FEED:
This encounter includes the feeding of a variety of different marine animals including Sea Turtles, and a large array of fish life. Our fish consume about 100kg of fresh fish, mussels and dietry supplements a week.
Watch as two of our divers, each with a bucket of mullet and kahawai, hand feed our sharks. This captivating encounter happens every Tuesday and Thursday at 2:30pm.
OCEANARIUM SURFACE FEED:
A member of our curation team feeds the many inhabitants of the Oceanarium from a raft. Watch as fish dart at rapid speeds trying to get their share of the food.
