Overview
More
The Two Oceans Aquarium is a window into the spectacular oceans surrounding the southern African coast. Through displays ranging from the small and almost fantastical Knysna seahorses, to sea turtles and shoals of shimmering fish, the aquarium holds wondrous discoveries around every corner. Come face-to-face with giant spider crabs and have an adventurous tactile experience at the Touch Pool. Be sure to visit the I&J Ocean Exhibit, with its 9m long window, and 10m long full tunnel. Qualified divers can also make use of the opportunity to dive in this exhibit with shoals of fish and turtles. The Jelly gallery is sure to mesmerize and enthrall.

From the moment you enter the aquarium it is if you step into magic! Very clean and well kept, it is only a pleasure to visit. We loved every part of it, from the jellyfish to the penguins. Worth taking the young ones there.

It was our first visit to the aquarium and it really was delightful, I enjoyed it as much as the kids did! The "nemo" tank has a hole to crawl into and makes wonderful foto's! A definite 'must-visit' destination when in Cape Town.

My wife and I did the kelp forest dive. What a awesome dive. You get the opportunity to feed the fish. Note. The fish come really close to you, so don't get a fright. Really money well spent.
