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.

The Two Oceans Aquarium is ideal for family outings. It's surely a happy place for children. As an adult I enjoyed watching the penquins and sharks. The magnificent array of species reflects the wonder of our surrounding oceans.

The Two Oceans Aquarium contains marine life from the Indian and Atlantic Ocean. Based on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront Cape Town, it showcases the diverse of marine life found in these two oceans. Great for kids. The massive tanks with predatory fish and sharks is something you could sit and watch for hours. Although the place seemed a bit small, we covered everything within 1 hour. Nice place to kill some time.

I recently took my school learners to the V&A Aquarium for an outing. I think I enjoyed it more than the children as I understood and could reason much better than most of them on the animals and their habitats. This place is a must visit to Cape Town, because it has most of (almost all) the sea animals found around the shores of South Africa. You will need a day and plan your visit as they have feeding times for the different animals on different days. A great family outing.

As the City is bounded by two oceans,there are examples of both to be seen here Sharks and Sting Rays swim in the large tank whilst there are smaller tanks filled with sea creatures of amazing varieties. Take past in the penguin experience and actually touch one or watch the Cape fur seals from the viewing platform.
To see all exhibits will take you an hour and three quarters, There is an excellent restaurant and a gifts shop avilable.
