Join us for a festive family camp out in front of the I&J Ocean Exhibit! Two Oceans Aquarium members will agree that this is our best event by far – the annual Festive Celebrations Family Sleepover is a night filled with special marine merriment, which serves to ring out the year that was and ring in a joyful festive season that’s bound to be filled with family, friends … and fish!

This year, our holiday sleepover is happening on Saturday 15 December – capacity is limited so secure your booking today to avoid disappointment. Please note, this event is only open to members with valid annual passes.
Fun & games
The evening will start with a festive arrival drink while our face-painter transforms your delighted children’s faces (or yours) into magical sea creatures. Take photographs with our resident elves before crafting a personalised and sea-themed festive stocking.
Ho ho ho!
Soon after, Scuba Claus will pop out from an unexpected place, signalling the beginning of the highly anticipated gift handouts (remember to bring along presents for your kids). Once all that excitement is over, we’ll settle down to enjoy popcorn and a cup of hot chocolate while watching a movie on the big screen.
Then, when the yawns start to appear, we’ll crawl into our sleeping bags and drift off to dreamland, while Sandy and Bob the green turtles, and all the other amazing animals in the exhibit, keep a watchful eye over us. Dream of a magical underwater wonderland and when the sunlight starts to trickle through the water, rise and shine to meet the new day ... A yummy “breakfast in a box” will be ready for you to enjoy while watching the fish swim past.
The season of giving
This year’s donations will go to Mdzananda Animal Clinic, where around 1 000 Khayelitsha pets are treated every month through consultations, hospitalisation, general and specialised surgery, and mobile clinics for sick and injured dogs and cats.
We appeal to you to please bring along your small change to make a big change in the lives of these precious animals. You can also donate items like cat and kitten food, dog and puppy food, dog chews, dog leads and collars, cage toys for kitties on cage rest, and cat litter for the cat ward.
