Owner description: 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 grabs 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 enthral.

If you've been to a nice Aquarium that you liked somewhere else in the world before (like in Singapore) then you'll be disappointed. Also it's quite pricy for that experience if you ask me (120 rand pp).

“Special Place”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

If you go to Cape Town a visit to the aquarium is a must, the kids loved it, and I loved it, very clean, and you know the entrance fees go to helping conservation to some extent.

A nice aquarium but not very big compared to aquariums in the States. Wide range of fish and other animals.

“Nice”

A nice Aquarium, really big. If you like aquariums or you try to find something to do if the weather is not so nice, this is a good recommendation

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

A very good aquarium even by international standards. It features a unique live bamboo forest. Really enjoyed it. And it is in the V&A waterfront.
