Cape Town aquarium Two Oceans is ideal for tourists or other visitors to Cape Town looking for a day visit to the aquarium. This popular centre offers visitors a glimpse into the diverse life found off the coastline of South Africa. Over 3000 living animals including fish, invertebrates, birds and reptiles can be seen at this wonderful facility that gives people the opportunity to discover what lives in and around the coastline of this beautiful country.
A great place to visit, the Cape Town aquarium is home to ragged-tooth sharks and shoals of yellowtail fish along with Knysna seahorses and African penguins. The animals have been entertaining and teaching visitors to the Two Oceans since it first opened its doors back in November 1995. It has established itself as one of the most popular attractions for visitors and tourists to the Mother City. It is also recognised as an environmental education facility and plays host to many bus loads of school children each year where kids are taught and learn about coastal marine life and protecting the environment.
Feeding times happen at different times throughout the day and for the more adventurous there is the chance to dive with sharks amongst other predators in the large predator tank. Admission prices are different for pensioners, adults, teenagers and children so it is best to contact the Two Oceans directly to find out what the entry fees are. At the time of writing this information, admission for children under four years of age was free. Convenient secure parking is available directly next to the building, they offer baby care facilities, wheelchairs and access for the physically disabled and a souvenir shop to buy gifts and memorabilia. If you are looking for a great day out in the Western Cape then be sure to put this wonderful Cape Town aquarium on top of your list.
