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 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 small aquarium. Kids love it. They have a tank full of clown fish that says "nemos" which is cute. We had this included in our iVenture cards. The penguin exhibit is cool, and there is no glass, so you get to see the penguins...More

I just expected so much more from this place. We got to the predator encounter with 3 Ragged tooth sharks in a large enclosure but not much more! Wasn't easy to see what was going on and no information was given to us about feedings...More

This is a medium sized aquarium with lovely exhibits, particularly of the two species of penguins found in Africa, the Hopper and the Black Footed African. There are three large exhibits, the predator tank, the miscellaneous fish tank and the kelp tank. The latter was...More

Thank you for your very detailed review of the Two Oceans Aquarium. Just a note -the rockhopper penguins are actually not endemic to the African coast. They are from the sub-Antarctic and were stranded here on our coast. We cannot release them again as they...More

This aquarium has so many species, and there is so much information to intake! The I&J Exhibit is fantastic. The penguin area is spectacular. A great way to entertain both kids and adults.

This is the worst Aquarium I have been to (and I have been to quite a few). It's very bland and overpriced for what you get.
