The Two Oceans Aquarium is open 365 days a year - there is even more to sea!
- 11h30 & 14h30 - Join the African penguins for their meals of fish and shrimp.
- 12h00 & 14h30 - A talking scuba diver feeds the sea turtles, rays and guitarfish in the I&J Ocean Exhibit.
- Sundays at 15h00 - Scuba divers enter the Predator Exhibit to feed the ragged-tooth sharks.
A window into a world of blue...
Meet the rays, musselcrackers and sea turtles of the I&J Ocean Exhibit, catch a glimpse of the misunderstood ragged-tooth shark and curious rockcods of the Predator Exhibit, waddle with the penguins, and meet the weird, wonderful and diverse ocean and reef dwellers of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans throughout the Skretting Diversity Gallery.
An amazing dive experience awaits you. The I&J Ocean Exhibit is 6m deep, has a full tunnel and displays incredible species such as turtles, rays, guitarfish, brindle bass and spotted grunter - the perfect place for a beginner to learn to dive, or for a seasoned scuba diver to get a bit closer to the action.
With an annual membership card, you can access the Aquarium 365 days a year to visit the fish as often as you wish! Plus, you get access to exclusive events, discounted diving, and animal experiences and a whole load more.
Learners from grade 6 to grade 12 have access to fantastic programmes at the Aquarium. From job-shadowing and volunteering to preparing for finals and finding resources and links for a great project, you'll find what you need here.
Children between the ages of 3 and 9 will love the Puppet Shows presented by our talented team at the I&J Children's Play Centre three times a day:
- 10h30, 13h30 and 15h30
In between these puppet shows, little ones can make arts and crafts, read books, dig in the sandpit or play with their friends.
Get up close and personal with the adorable rockhopper penguins. You can meet our too-cute rescue rockies with an interactive Penguin Experience.
Situated on the doorstep of the Two Oceans Aquarium is Vista Marina, a stylish new restaurant that offers excellent Meditteranean-style fare along with its unbeatable views and top-notch service. Enjoy a drink on the covered deck or sit back for a dining experience as befits this stunning setting.
