Two Oceans Aquarium, Cape Town (South Africa)

Two Oceans Aquarium is a prime attraction on the iconic Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in the city of Cape Town. The Two Oceans Aquarium, Cape Town, gets its name from its very location, where the Atlantic Ocean on the west and Indian Ocean on the east meet each other at the shore. Opened, in November, 1995, the place has some unbelievable underwater experiences for ideal family tours at the Cape Town waterfront.

History of Two Oceans Aquarium

The Two Oceans Aquarium opened its doors to the public on 13th November, 1995. Since then, the aquarium underwent many changes. It has now become an iconic attraction of the city of Cape Town, and a world-class marine education and conservation centre. Established with the love for the underwater and its inhabitants, this popular aquarium is famed for its contribution to conservation endeavors, animal husbandry, and the state-of-the-art educational programmes.

Attractions of Two Oceans Aquarium

The Two Oceans Aquarium is home to thousands of marine animals, belonging to more than 200 varied underwater species and one can catch a glimpse of all by interactive displays. There are 7-8 specific displays at the aquarium, each of which is dedicated to the preservation and demonstration of the most unique marine creatures, not just of South African coast but of the world’s oceans at large. The Atlantic Ocean Galley is all about translucent jelly fishes, the rare seahorse Knysna and giant spider crabs, while the iconic Predator Exhibit is home to one of the sea’s most dangerous creatures. Three ragged-tooth sharks called Lili-May, Dane and Bernie live here, swimming around in 2 million litres of saltwater.

If one holds a PADI Open Water Certificate, they can do Two Oceans Aquarium diving in the I&J Ocean exhibit tank, which has various marine animals scattered around 1.6 million litres, like turtles, rays and a variety of fish. There is a separate Indian Ocean exhibit as well. You will find a host of colourful clownfish or anemone fish in the coral reefs here, which will remind you and your kids about the movie Finding Nemo. One of the Two Oceans Aquarium’s biggest exhibits is the Kelp Forest, which is a large underwater range of foliage which is home to silver-scaled fishes. Also visit the Two Oceans Aquarium new exhibit, River Meander, to see African penguins, oystercatchers, mole snakes, leopard toads, platannas and a river course of freshwater marines.

Either, you are an intrepid researcher, a beached turtle, an underwater lover, or just a curious visitor, this world-renowned aquarium in the city of Cape Town is meant to transport you to another world that you would like to visit again and again.

I highly recommend Flyocity for the trip of South Africa, especially Inderjeet who was extremely supportive in planning the trip and even during the trip also.

      We had seen their earlier reviews and booked M K Holidays through travel triangle for our honeymoon tour to south africa. They have arranged it extremely well. Every promises have been catered to. All the guides (they were drivers too) were extremely knowledgeable and experienced. They were polite, punctual and reliable. The itinerary was very well structured. We covered most of the places and things to do, leaving a few, because of weather conditions. The cars arranged for us were very well maintained. Overall, we were absolutely satisfied and looking forward to our next interaction. One very small thing was, few information regarding our tour was delayed till the last moment. Although everything was perfectly arranged, but sharing the information well ahead in time would save us from the anxiety before our travel. The Bamboos (Guest House) was booked for us for three days stay at Knysna. However, you cannot expect a 4 star comfort at Bamboos like the other hotels but it has a different taste of its own with a homely peaceful atmosphere with a well equipped kitchen inside the room. However, we personally enjoyed this different stay at The Bamboos at Knysna.

      While I found manoj ji a very nice and always accomodating person, I was not at all impressed by his management. Here is my pros and cons Pros: 1. Very well versed with the SA market 2. Provided very nice recommendations 3. Definitely will give a good price Cons 1. His management is not good 2. You have to chase him for getting the things done despite regular calling 3. He will forget to get the booking done- our hotel was not booked until the day we reached there. This really pissed me off
