Get the best of both (water)worlds with a combo ticket

Take to the high seas and discover marine life by boat – and then head to the Aquarium for a glimpse of what lies beneath the waves.

All aboard the Ocean Adventurer!

In conjunction with Ocean Adventurer marine eco-tours, we’ve launched a nifty combo ticket. Spend 90 minutes around Table Bay on a beautiful, blue-octopused catamaran, learning all about the rich biodiversity of Cape Town’s waters, and looking out for dolphins, seals, sunfish and whales. You’ll hear from a trained guide about the unique upwelling systems off the South African coastline, and how this creates an ideal environment for an abundance of wildlife.

Then you’ll get access to the Two Oceans Aquarium, home to over 3 000 living sea animals and voted one of the best aquariums in the world. A visit here perfectly complements your boat cruise – with marine life from both the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, it provides an incredible insight into the local picture. This makes it relevant, proudly South African, and of educational benefit to kids and grown-ups alike.

The combo ticket provides same-day Aquarium admission and one cruise aboard the Ocean Adventurer. Cruise times are 11am, 1pm, 3pm and 5pm and are weather-dependant. Should the trip be cancelled due to bad weather, tickets can be redeemed on another date, within five days of purchase.
