Great place to visit as an adult or with kids. Especially on a rainy day when other options are limited. Educational and visually stunning.

I really was looking for a bigger experience I guess. Friendly people and clean place. Might be better for families with small kids. It seemed to be mostly a big aquarium and a decent penguin exhibit. Wish they could expand to more exhibits.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Two Oceans Aquarium. We hope that you saw all of our exhibits, including the 2million litre Predator Exhibit and the 1,6 million litre Ocean Exhibit. Did you manage to see the jelly gallery?

I loved the variety you could see! It was worth the day visit, & I would come back to see more. It was a while ago, but I very much enjoyed.
