Our members will agree that Aquarium sleepovers are unlike anything else! Amongst the many awesome perks, this one has always stood out. Spending an entire evening at the Aquarium, surrounded by some of your favourite marine life, is an experience that not many get to enjoy – you do not want to miss out!
Bootlegger restaurant with kids' play centre
The Aquarium has recently welcomed Bootlegger Coffee Company as its onsite restaurant. With awesome views of the V&A Waterfront's seals and Table Mountain, this is a great place to take a break and have something to eat before heading back into the Aquarium with your all-day ticket. This Bootlegger has a children's play centre, so kids can work off some of that extra energy!
Aquarium members enjoy 10% off at Bootlegger at the Aquarium.
