Our exhibits showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found off our coast.
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 in Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.
The Aquarium’s newest exhibit features a full 10-metre long tunnel and a 9 metre-wide, 4 metres high window onto a variety of subtropical species.
The Smart Living Challenge Zone, a new addition to the Aquarium, encourages visitors to think about their impact on the environment and to make environmentally responsible choices. These choices will not only help them save money, but also lower their consumption of water and energy, reduce their waste and enrich biodiversity.
Vibrant tropical beauties from the warm Indian Ocean, including the popular clownfish, honeycomb eels and more. This gallery also features a 3 metre-wide cylindrical exhibit showcasing the dazzling colours of Indian Ocean fish.
Discover cryptic fishes that playing hide and seek. See translucent jellies and the shy master of camouflage, the common octopus. This gallery also features the endangered Knysna seahorse and the alien-like giant spider crab.
Explore the journey of a river and all its inhabitants – from freshwater riverine fish and birds, to the rocky shore-dwelling penguins.
The Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit is an underwater forest where kelp plants grow like tall trees, fish swim through the fronds like birds and abalone, sea urchins and rock lobsters feed and take cover among the root-like holdfasts.
The I&J Predator Exhibit has shut down for maintenance. When it reopens, it will have a brand new name and brand new shark species. Check out the I&J Ocean Exhibit for our latest large-scale display.
