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.

“Nice rainy day activity for the children.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Lovely activity for a rainy day. Go early so that it is not too busy.

The aquarium could do with some dolphins ( like the one in Durban)

“Fun visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

One of the more impressive aquariums I've visited in life. Well designed for a fun as well as an educational experience. There's of course an impressive variety of sea life there, too.

We took our toddler (2) to the Two Oceans Aquarium. She loved it. Especially the Turtles and Nemo exhibit. Great way to spend half a day with the family.
