Two Oceans Aquarium
Tel : (021) 418 3823
Called the Two Oceans Aquarium because the vast Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet here, or almost here at the southern tip of the continent, the delightful underwater nature reserve is host to over 3000 living sea animals, including sharks, fish, turtles, and penguins.
The Two Oceans Aquarium is without doubt one of the most exciting attractions in the city, particularly if you have children (there is a wonderful child play area in the basement set right up against the seal display where children and seals have fun alongside one another). Child-height window benches and a ‘touch pool’ where they can touch and feels kelp, shells and anemones add to the appeal.
If you'd like to go in, the aquarium is open every day of the year (including public holidays) from 09h30 until 18h00
There should be plenty of cabs around, but if you can’t find (a safe looking) one call EBR Taxis on 021 424 9494 or us on 021 424 6445 and we’ll help you out!
