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.

If you've been to other aquariums around the world (Atlanta, Long Beach, etc), this may not be really impressive but it's quite good. Of course it features South African marine life so there's lots to learn. It pretty well laid out with only the odd...More

Visit only if you have spare time in Cape Town, only if you have exhausted all your activities. They have a small but good collection of aquatic animals. Kids would be happy to be there. Do not waste your time and money, nothing spectacular.

Beautifully maintained aquarium - good place to go spend a day when the weather in Cape Town is not too good... Good fun for families!

This has got to be one of the best aquariums anywhere. A vast array of fish and pelagics which you can see in clear water. Something we couldn't do on a Great White Shark cage dive!
