Scuba dive beneath the water surface and experience a world of Cape Town's ocean wonders! 

If you've always wanted to scuba dive with sharks, or just know what it's like to scuba dive in Cape Town, you've come to the right place. 

Swim with our sharks & more

Scub diving at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town is certainly worthy of being included on the bucket list of any experienced diver, adrenalin junkie or just someone who would like to experience the incredible feeling of being surrounded by the remarkable animals that call the underwater world their home.

Anyone interested in diving in the I&J Predator Exhibit needs to have a minimum of a Discover Scuba qualification. They can attain this limited qualification either with our onsite instructor or through another dive school. If they qualify with another instructor, that instructor needs to accompany them (at no charge) on their dive in the I&J Predator Exhibit together with our dive instructor.

Diving in the I&J Predator Exhibit is available to divers with an Open Water 1 qualification, while diving in the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit is limited to divers that have an advance qualification.

Not qualified? Not a problem. See “get your scuba qualification” below for more information.
