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 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.

Fascinating and educationally sight. Well worth a visit particularly when it is raining outside. The cafe also serves excellent coffee

So much to see and do, this is a great outing for a rainy day. A lovely kids area with puppet shows, and enough interesting things to see and learn about for adults. Very clean and well organised. Highly recommended.

A great aquarium well worth seeing. It's relatively cheap to see the fish here and you get a good few hours there. We went first thing on a Monday and there were lots of kids from a local school but other than that can imagine its normally quite quiet at that time. The exhibits aren't massive in the first section but give you some good looks at different fish. Nice penguin exhibits too

The Two Oceans is a great way to spend 1 to 2 hours in Cape Town. The aquarium is well stocked and is situated just next to the V&A Waterfront.

Definitely great for the whole family
