Here is a list of possible shore excurisions we are considering in the following ports:
Christchurch---Tranz Alpine Train Tour or International Antarctic Center
Wellington--- Te Papa Tongarewa Museum , Karori Wildlife Santuary , Seal Coast Safari , or Wellington Harbor & Storm Coast Tour
Auckland---Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World & Antarctic Encounter Would this be similar to the International Antarctic Center in Christchurch?
Thanks for any input and suggestions. Steve
Christchurch---International Antarctic Center as The TranzAlpine Train Tour would only include the first half of that particular train journey and would be better saved for a land tour.
Wellington--- Te Papa Tongarewa Museum , Karori Wildlife Sanctuary would be my pick as Te Papa is our National museum and the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary also includes plant life as well as wildlife.
Auckland---Kelly Tarlton's Underwater World & Antarctic Encounter, is basically an aquarium with an Antarctic add on where as the International Antarctic Center is all about the Antarctic including humans as "inhabitants".
