“Thank you for a really magnificent evening! I think everyone was truly surprised and amazed by, firstly, the scenery and, secondly, the delicious food. The service was fantastic and I would recommend your venue to everyone I know” – Anene van Staden, Peter Gilder

The Aquarium is committed to reducing its environmental impact and, in recognition of its efforts, was awarded Platinum status by the Heritage Environmental Management Company in 2011.

The Aquarium’s onsite restaurant and caterer, Shoreline Café, is the first restaurant in Africa to be awarded Chain-of-Custody certification from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).

The Aquarium was chosen by Project 90x2030 as one of six renewable energy demonstrations sites in South Africa and currently generates a small percentage of its energy requirements from wind and solar energy.


With a window that looks into the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit, it provides a truly magnificent backdrop against which to hold an intimate dinner or cocktail.
