Each year, as the summer days lengthen, the Two Oceans Aquarium extends its opening hours, affording visitors the opportunity to experience the Aquarium’s underwater wonders for longer. From 15 December 2014 to 4 January 2015, the Aquarium will be open from 09h00 to 20h00 (last ticket sold at 19h30) – perfect for those who like to start their holiday days a little earlier and extend them a little longer!
Achieving 10th place in the 2014 Travellers’ Choice Zoo and Aquarium Awards, the Aquarium offers young, old, moms, dads and their little ones the opportunity to explore, experience and engage.
Combine your visit to the Aquarium with an explorative boat trip on the Ocean Adventurer. Tickets are available at the Aquarium ticket office, and the adult combo ticket costs R340 for a 90-minute marine eco-safari in Table Bay and a visit to the Aquarium.
During the festive season, the Aquarium’s AfriSam Children’s Play Centre will have a jam-packed festive-season programme. The little ones can enjoy themed arts and crafts as well as the ever-popular puppet shows, and everyone will have a fun time meeting the Aquarium mascots. Remember to take a selfie or gather the family for a group shot!
The Aquarium’s on-site restaurant, Shoreline Café will, during extended hours (15 December to 4 January), remain open later, with the kitchen closing only at 18h30.
Stuck for gift ideas? Why not include some special experiences? The Aquarium offers the perfect gift for those who have everything. From day tickets, which when bought online offer a 10% discount, to diving with sharks and memberships for young and old, there is sure to be something to make gift buying this festive season just a little bit easier.
So, after a day of fun in the sun or in the hustle and bustle of the shopping arena, why not visit the Aquarium, cool down and relax for a while in its tranquil ambiance, taking in some underwater scenery and ending your day surrounded by the calm of the ocean?
Also keep in mind that your ticket is valid for the whole day, so you are able to see early-morning fish-capades, lunchtime penguin shenanigans and evening shark serenity. With extended hours, gift membership, diving and loads of fun for the little ones, the Aquarium is certainly the place to visit these holidays.
