Two Oceans Aquarium Reviews
Very informative; very friendly staff, enjoyed watching the penguins being fed. The shark tank was also an experience and a half during feeding time. more »
My husband and I stopped in and enjoyed our time there. Everything is well maintained...you can tell by the water quality and how healthy the animals look. I would recommend. more »
One of the landmarks in Cape Town as well as South Africa to visit. Young and old will enjoy seeing different species. Whether fish, penguins, children's play section...hey, it's all there. My wife and I enjoyed our visit there on Saturday 5 October 2019 accompanied by her Mom in a wheelchair. We were treated as first class guests by all the attendants. Thanks to you all. One can see the immense professional effort put into opening an attraction like this as well as the efforts in maintaining it. Our only disappointment was the cost of a digital photograph taken at the entrance. If I'm not mistaken, R280! This is optional of course. By all means, take your own. Cameras and cellphones are allowed. And remember, South African citizens enjoy free entry on their birthday. Yippee!!!
The kids love going here. We have been here so many times that the kids know the place back to front and want to keep going back. Had one of the birthday parties here as well and it was awesome. The staff are great and extremely knowledgeable.
