The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.

Vision & Mission

Our awe-inspiring exhibits aim to encourage love, respect and understanding of our oceans so that people are motivated to take action for their future well-being and to use marine and other natural resources sustainably.

Our staff and volunteers

A small and dedicated staff of approximately 60 supports the Two Oceans Aquarium. They are supported by a number of volunteers, whose work is also invaluable to the Aquarium.


The Two Oceans Aquarium is a certified Platinum member of the Heritage Environmental Rating Programme. Platinum status is the highest level of achievement in this internationally recognised eco-labelling programme.
