Overview of Two Oceans Aquarium

Two Oceans Aquarium is a significant attraction on Cape Town's famous Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, which you can visit with your Two Oceans Aquarium tickets. The aquarium got its name due to its exact position, where the shores of the Atlantic Ocean on the west and the Indian Ocean on the east meet. The Cape Town Waterfront attraction, which opened in November 1995, offers some magnificent underwater encounters that are perfect for family outings. Through interactive displays visitors to the Two Oceans Aquarium may look at thousands of marine animals that are a part of more than 200 distinct undersea species.


At the Two Oceans Aquarium, there are seven to eight different displays, each of which is focused on the preservation and protection of the most unusual marine species, not just from the South African coast but from all over the world.
