Make the most out of your Aquarium visit – here are our recommended must-do activities.

Have a Penguin Experience

Get up close and personal with the adorable rockhopper penguins of the Two Oceans Aquarium. Learn about our feathered friends and watch them being fed. They also love sitting in people's laps!

Look closer, feel closer

"Sea" life under the microscope! Check out our interactive exhibit that reveals the world of the very, very small. Also nearby is the Touch Pool, where you can pick up, touch and feel a variety of marine animals and plants.

Take a dive

Diving in the Aquarium offers the unique opportunity to get close to shoals of large predators such as yellowfin tuna, striped bonito, dusky kob and black- and white musselcracker – as well a three turtles: a dive that you can't experience in the natural environment.

Play the day away

The I&J Children's Play Centre buzzes with the excitement and energy of children as they are entertained and informed through puppet shows that have an important environmental message, as well as arts and crafts activities, games, books and a sand pit. A great space for parents or guardians to relax while the little ones play to their hearts' content.

Grab a bite to eat

Don't let a grumbling tummy spoil your day of underwater adventure! The Aquarium is home to a variety of snack kiosks, a Bootlegger Coffee Company Restaurant and even a fully-fledged catering kitchen.
