Amazing place

5.0/ 5

My absolute favourite part of the Aquarium is the sharks. I’m obsessed with sharks. It’s my special interest. I’d go to the Aquarium and just sit and watch the sharks the entire time. I have Autism and ADHD and the Aquarium is a place I find peaceful. Its one of my happy places.

5.0/ 5

It’s amazing seeing the different type of animals you can find in the ocean, and the relaxing sense you have when watching those large sharks swim around so gracefully. This is one of my favourite spots in Cape Town!

The legacy

5.0/ 5

Myself and my husband have not been to the aquarium for over 10 years . But When we were there all those years ago, it was truly a magical experience. I enjoyed it so much even as a adult. The wide range of creatures to see is mind blowing. Now I have a 8 year old, 6 year old and a 3 month baby, and all Ive been wanting to do since we moved to Cape Town is take my boys . My boys are crazy ocean lovers , all they ask from us is to take them to the aquarium. Regards Melissa Du Preez

One of my favourite places in the world

5.0/ 5

A favourite birthday outing of mine, it always makes the day special and guarantees hours of fun for all ages. I enjoyed it there as a kid and now as a twenty-something being there still fills me with wonder at our beautiful ocean and inspires my will to protect it. The tunnel area, which makes you feel like you’re walking along the sea floor, is probably my favourite spot altogether.

An Aquatic Wonderland

5.0/ 5

I visit the aquarium at least once a year, never getting bored of the astounding beauty of what is under the water surface. My favourite exhibit is definitely the I&J Exhibit, where some rehabilitating or rescued turtles live in. As a future marine biologist this place is my aquatic wonderland.

Memories with Two Oceans Aquarium

5.0/ 5

What I love most about two oceans aquarium is the fact my kids got to learn a lot about the fishes under water. Don’t get me started on how much they loved the penguins and got to experience to be in their presence and how well they explained everything about the penguins.

Wonder with a cause.

5.0/ 5

The best experience especially on a rainy day. The displays are so beautiful and educational. What’s great about this aquarium is the conservation of the ocean and animals and education around it. These people really care about the ocean life and rehabilitate turtles!! The tunnel and jelly fish are my favourite.
