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.

I guess one Aquarium can become pretty much like the others but on a bakingly hot day we were glad to dive for the cover and two pleasant hours spent viewing and learning about sea life.

There are a good many fascinating exhibits in the aquarium, all well presented, with plenty of accompanying facts. Children well catered for with interactive exhibits.

Not a huge facility but an interesting way to spend a couple of hours. The tanks had some good information on the species in he area.

I did find this one of the best aquariums I've been in. I got the impression they do actually care about the inmates.
The tanks seem to be big enough for the inhabitants. All clean and well kept with a lot of good conservation information.

The aquarium is one of the biggest in SA, and boasts a massive tank with great white sharks (3), giant manta rays, ragga tooth sharks, turtles and lots of other fish. There is also a large seaweed garden and quite a few 'touch and learn' exhibits for the children. The penguin enclosure is always fun as well, and they always make me laugh. Definitely a must see attraction!
