Overview

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.

Great experience, especially for children. Look at sharks, jellyfish and other aquatic species at close range. Make sure you see the feeding of fish and penguins (inquire about feeding times). The walk-through glass tunnel is spectacular.

They let our son feed the penguins for a fee. That was amazing since the bird was very smart and we love pigpens.

Beautiful Aquarium highly recommended to visit while you are on holiday esp with children. Fantastic display of penguins and clever use of mirror to enhance their Jelly fish exhibits.
