Two Oceans Aquarium: Penguins, Predators and an Underwater Tunnel

Two Oceans Aquarium: Penguins, Predators and an Underwater Tunnel

The whole family saves with unlimited free entry all year.

With live ocean exhibitions and a Touch Pool (where kids can get up close with sea anemones), this one-stop destination of all things aquatic is, unsurprisingly, one of Cape Town’s premier tourist destinations. The world-class aquarium has over 3,000 species on display, and standout exhibits include the Predator Exhibit (sharks!), the rockhopper penguin colony, and the underwater tunnel.

    Do you have any concessions for pensioners or over 60’s?

      Hi Brian

      You would need to contact the Aquarium directly for that sort of info – their contact details on the right hand side.
