During April and May 2016, we are hosting “Cape Town’s Underwater Wilderness”, an underwater photography exhibition featuring spectacular images, by nine of South Africa’s top photographers, dedicated to the marine world found off the coast of the Western Cape. Eighty of the photos will be sold at R1 000 each and each photographer’s top photo will be offered up on auction. All funds raised will be donated to Shark Spotters and will be used for a shark research project.

Geoff Spiby

Cape Town underwater photographer Geoff Spiby is no stranger to the Two Oceans Aquarium – he has taken many of our most iconic images, including the large-scale pictures at the entrance to our ticket office.

“I started taking underwater pictures while on a diving honeymoon in the Maldives in 1984, and have seldom dived without a camera since," says Geoff.

“I love the challenge of trying to record the beauty and diversity of marine life, both on the reef and free swimming.

“Cape Town will always be special due to the variety, density and colours of our reef invertebrates, our exciting large animals such as seals, sharks and whales and the allure of a kelp forest.

“Photography awakens non-divers to what incredible life there is below the surface that is worth conserving, and can only help with conservation in the long run.”

Be sure to check out Geoff's photography, along with the work of eight other photographers when you visit the Aquarium in April and May! If you are interested in purchasing any of the prints, please email members@aquarium.co.za.

The exhibition is co-sponsored by Orms Print Room & Framing, Nauticam and Dive Action.
