The sharks  have been released & we're building a new shark exhibit!

We like to boast about how cool it is to scuba dive with sharks in Cape Town – no cage required – right here at the Two Oceans Aquarium. But don't take our word for it.

We've rounded up some of our favourite Instagram posts from visitors who've taken the plunge with us. 


Jess Daley, pictured above, is a writer for Cape Town Etc. As an PADI Advanced Open Water diver, she was able to not only dive with the ragged-tooth sharks in the I&J Predator Exhibit, but also to weave in and out of the kelp fronds of the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit.



When you do dive in the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit, like Animal Ocean’s Steven Benjamin did, you may be lucky enough to float around while the northern rockhoppers come in for their daily dip. Affectionately known as “underwater bullets”, you’ll be blown away by how speedy these hopping seabirds are in the water.



Look, we want you to have fun, so if rock-paper-scissors is your thing, go for it!

Yoshi the loggerhead turtle will adjudicate.



Every once in a while, it's great to swim out of your comfort zone. Just ask these BMXers who traded their wheels for fins …



Or follow this blogger’s brave example and go on a Discover Scuba Course - it takes a morning, is valid for a day and includes the shark dive - first. Through us, you can also earn an internationally recognised PADI Open Water, PADI Advanced Open Water or a PADI refresher course. Our resident divemaster Iain Robertson will help you feel comfortable in the water, every step of the way.



Step into another world entirely.

And see things in an entirely different way.



You’ll have a great time, we promise.
