Owner description: 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.

Not the hugest aquarium but don’t let that put you off. It has very informative volunteers who will show you so many wonderful things. The whole place is amazing - don’t forget the Nemos!

We went as a family and everyone loved it! Lots of great exhibits to see. Many things we had never seen before. I’d highly recommend a stop here.

A very good activity. High quality Aquarium with many fantastic educational activities for children and adults. You can easily spend 2 hours in here and take a nice cool test from the warm Waterfront

Quite a small aquarium, but nicely laid out and lots of interesting fish and facts. Kids would love the Nemo display...adults less so - lots of clown fish in quite a small tank. Decent penguin exhibit. Ok for an hour or so.

Not a huge fan of animals in captivity, we were positively surprised by the excellent turtle rehabilitation center of the aquarium. It was fantastic to see the turtles from up close, to learn about their specific stories, and to learn about the dangers they face and how we can all help. The aquarium is also very involved with sharks and educating the audience about how scary a world without sharks would be. Many other programs, also penguins. Great job guys! An ideal visit with kids!
