The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.

Our Covid-19 workplace-ready plan

In preparation for its reopening, we have introduced a range of health and safety measures in line with current Government regulations and a Covid-19 workplace-ready plan has been compiled and implemented. 

Vision & Mission

Our awe-inspiring exhibits aim to encourage love, respect and understanding of our oceans so that people are motivated to take action for their future well-being and to use marine and other natural resources sustainably.


The Two Oceans Aquarium is a certified Diamond member of the Heritage Environmental Rating Programme. Our Diamond status was awarded in 2017 after we maintained Platinum status, the highest level of achievement in this internationally recognised eco-labelling programme, for five years.
