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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the aquarium.... especially the jellyfish. They are lit up so well that you can see them in great detail.

The clown fish were also so cute as they thought that the glass cube was their anemone.

Great for all the family and for couples!

Thank MrsRJGExplorer

Great review, thank you. Thank you also for reading the signage about the clownfish. People are often distressed by their behaviour, but they are perfectly healthy and just acting like clowns.

Very well designed and thought out. A good destination for those with children. A little on the small side. A 45 minute visit should suffice.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of the Two Oceans Aquarium. We generally advise to put about 2 hours aside for a visit. We sure hope you managed to see the entire Aquarium in detail in 45 minutes.

We were lucky enough to see the noon feeding by divers of the rays who were obviously waiting for lunch. The ragged tooth sharks have a very large tank and there were many different viewing areas to watch them
Many interesting exhibits we spent 2 hours in there. At the moment the kelp tank exhibtion is closed due to renovation.

Thank you for your review. Yes, the kelp forest is currently undergoing some reforestation. We hope to have this magnificent exhibit open in the next couple of months.

So well laid out and organised. Easy to move around and read the informative displays. Wonderful exhibits and displays.
Saw the fish and penguin feeding sessions, both very informative and entertaining.
Great for families. Loved it.
Toilets, refreshments, shop. A cool and comfortable respite from the hot weather outside.
