With more than 3,000 creatures on show, the Two Oceans Aquarium provides a diverse showcase of Atlantic and Indian Ocean marine life.
Explore different underwater species from the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest, which also showcases the unique kelp that is found on Cape Town beaches. Check out what sea life looks like under a microscope, and explore the Indian Ocean. View mesmerising exhibits that feature the dazzling colours of its fish, translucent jellies, shy octopuses and Knysna seahorses. Make a point to check out the new I&J Exhibit, a 10-meter long tunnel that gives a peek at a variety of subtropical species.
The Two Oceans Aquarium was first opened in November 1995. While the aquarium is all about fun and entertainment, it is also devoted to education and conservation for a number of species of marine life. The staff are involved in a number of important tasks around Cape Town, including freeing seals tangled in litter, assisting injured or stranded starfish and conducting research on harmful fish parasites and other health problems affecting aquatic life. In fact, many of the aquarium’s animals were rescued and are either recuperating from injuries or trauma or can either no longer live in the wild.
