 The $1.6 million Sea Cave Adventure zone tells the story of the Hauraki Gulf, taking guests on a hands-on journey of exploration into native marine species and their environments. Guests can encounter native octopus, eel, starfish and crab species, and discover crayfish that are now functionally extinct in the Hauraki Gulf. 

Sea Cave Adventure is supported by the Department of Conservation as a portal for guests to discover the Hauraki Gulf’s marine life, the threats to its future and how they can help protect it. Virtual Department of Conservation Rangers feature throughout the zone to engage and educate guests.
