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.

“Just the right size for 2 hours trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

It is small but very rich! great way to learn about the differences between the two oceans and be aware of the great amount of life they hold together.
Kids really enjoy the area and the feeding times must be attend!

“Excellent Aquarium.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

one of the best Aquariums in the world! Definitely worth a visit on a rainy day or any other day! Nice to take kids along. Well laid out, and a huge variety of fish.

Up there with the best Aquariums in the world. A huge display of fish and things aquatic. Wonderful experience for children in the wet zone where they can be part of the sea

As a family we never get bored of visiting the Aquarium, with the restuarant now on site, you can see everything and then finish afternoon off with a relaxing lunch. Puts a smile on our dials everytime :)

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

It may bot be as spectacular as uShaka, but the displays are informative and beautiful. Monday mornings are quiet and give you plenty space to walk around. Worth the visit!
