It is oFISHial – construction has started for the new predator exhibit coming soon to the Two Oceans Aquarium!

Representatives from the V&A Waterfront joined project managers and team members involved in the construction of the new site, as well as staff from the Aquarium, for a special ground-breaking ceremony, which heralded the beginning of our latest development.

Every morning, our rockhopper penguins move from their beach in the Penguin Exhibit to their outside pool at the AfriSam Children’s Play Centre. Except on Thursdays. On Thursdays they detour past the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit, where they spend some time swimming among the tall kelp plants and large fish.

A fabulous adventure at the Aquarium

A fabulous adventure at the Aquarium By Willem Steenkamp / 4 January 2014

One discovered a whole new world; another absorbed more than last time, and a third explored a new passion for photography. It was wonderful to watch.

Their experiences were all different, but one thing’s certain: the extended Steenkamp family all had a fabulous adventure at the Two Oceans Aquarium.

The clown triggerfish is instantly recognisable by its bright, eccentric colours. But don’t be taken in – some triggers are aggressive and will even chase divers and snorkelers away from their territories! Best to look at it from a comfortable distance, or even better, come and learn all about it at the Two Oceans Aquarium. Remember that you save 10% when purchasing your tickets online.
