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.

This is sort of an "also-ran" on V&A Waterfront, the least impressive aquarium we have visited, anywhere, but - if you are walking around the area and have an extra 45 minutes, it's ok.

What can be said except this is an aqurium. There were penguins which you can watch being fed throughout the day. The ragged teeth sharks are ugly and beautiful at the same time. Amazing! There are lots to see and quite a few interactive things...More

This is a very nice small aquarium. We have been to much larger ones in the States but this one was well worth the time to visit. We had a very nice visit, spent about 2 hours!

If you have been to Dubai, this place is no match for that, but its a cool holiday pops near waterfront with kids to enjoy with some live experience of touching fish and underwater snails etc.
