This year we’ve really loved hosting all kinds of different events at the Two Oceans Aquarium. Prestigious companies like MWEB, the V&A Waterfront and Safmarine chose us as the venue for their year-end parties and it all happened at our fantastic new venue, the I&J Ocean Exhibit. And, oh buoy, these parties were seriously awesome. But don’t take our word for it… Check out these great pictures from several unforgettable Aquarium nights.

Cape Town Carnival theme reveal: Ocean Odyssey

Our events season kicked off with a stunning bash hosted by the Cape Town Carnival at the Two Oceans Aquarium. The Carnival happens every year in March and it’s one of the hottest events on the South African calendar. In 2017, the Cape Town Carnival’s theme will be “Amaza!”, which means “ocean odyssey”. Fitting, then, that the Carnival decided to unveil their theme right here at Cape Town’s premier fishy destination.

It was a wonderful evening attended by organising committees, members of the media, local tourism bodies and celebrities. The costumes totally blew our minds!

Mardis Gras – the V&A Waterfront’s year-end function

Seeing as we are situated in the V&A Waterfront, we were super-stoked to be asked to host the company’s Mardis Gras-themed year-end function.

We loved doing the event management and décor design for a group of people who certainly know a thing or two about spectacles themselves! Thanks to AV Direct who did the lighting, laser and projections for us.

Night at the Aquarium – Sorrento Events

Sorrento's event at the Two Oceans Aquarium for RGA’s Thanksgiving cocktail function was all about recreating “the magical world under the sea” and it boasted “elements of mystery, wonder and serenity. Guests enjoyed welcome drinks while admiring the various exhibits."

"In the absence of daylight, the multitude of colours were even more striking and wondrous. Then, moving through a room pitch dark except for the blue glow of jelly fish, the attendees arrived in the main venue which was the I&J Ocean Exhibit. Here they danced the night away in front of the huge acryclic window separating them and a magnitude of sea life,” Sorrento Events said on their blog.

Sea splendour for VIP dinner – XO Events

XO Events hosted a VIP dinner event at the Two Oceans Aquarium for a French group from the automobile industry late in November. For them, this was “a privileged and unique experience that makes you rediscover the Two Oceans Aquarium by night in a sophisticated and zen manner."

“Before and after dinner, guests were welcome to walk around the Aquarium with their glass of wine and to succumb to the charms of this enchanted environment and admire the splendour of the sea life available in this magical place,” XO Events said on their Facebook page.
