We're grateful that we've been able to bring in the new year on a positive note, with families, couples, youngsters and all-round ocean enthusiasts being able to enjoy the Two Oceans Aquarium during the holidays. Thanks for making us a part of your memories, and sharing your favourite moments with us!

Nature truly is the greatest muse - and we love it when local talent chooses the Aquarium for their inspiration.

"Staff very friendly and helpful. It is really the money worth to go even with some of the interaction displays closed [as a safety precaution].

"Amazing experience, the highlight was the friendliness of the staff, and the availability of the wheel chairs for the use of the elderly." - Marchant

It wouldn't be an Aquarium experience without being able to change perceptions about the fascinating animals we share the planet with.

It's exciting for us to think that people who visited the Aquarium as children when we first opened are now bringing their own kids! Multi-generation ocean-lovers abound!

"A beautiful and quiet place to visit for both young and old. It gives that soothing feeling of peace." - Camillo

Some visitors stepped out of their comfort zones, learning to scuba dive and even diving right in with our sharks!

"Awesome diving experience with the sharks! Thank you Marcello for being a great guide!" - Francois

Most importantly, we love seeing young children being fascinated by all the new things they've discovered about the ocean on their Aquarium visit.

"Take a step back and relax as you watch our gorgeous sea life swim around." - Lindsey

And for some, the highlight of 2020 was having the Aquarium all to themselves for our famous Deep Blue Dinner evening!
