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.

The place is located at a very convenient location. It is just opposite the parking and very near to the sea and the mall. The variety of sea animals is good. You can easily spend an hour or two in this place. There are many nice attractions such as the shark tank , the nemos tank and the touching fishes area. I would recommend it to anyone who is in Cape Town.

Thought we had seen all the creatures that the oceans have to offer, but were amazed at some of the creatures that we had not seen before. Definitely worth spending some time in this small aquarium.

We were certainly surprised with the aquarium here in Cape Town! Took a great picture of my husband in the middle of many "Nimo's"! Will bring back happy memories of our visit to this aquarium.

The aquarium was interesting as far as providing more information about the local marine life. I enjoyed the kelp tank and large aquarium. Since taking up scuba diving I feel less impressed by the big fish tanks so I think a non diver may have enjoyed this more

Thank you very much for writing a review of the Two Oceans Aquarium. Did you know that we allow qualified scuba divers to dive in our large exhibits? Advance divers can dive in the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit and feed the multitude of fish. Openwater 1 divers can dive with our sharks in the I&J Predator Exhibit (no cage). Thank you again for taking the time to write a review.
