Immerse yourself in the wonders of the ocean. Visit our exhibits and learn about marine life. Even better, join us during feeding time to see a frenzy of activity, accompanied by a short talk from one of our staff.
The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.
Our awe-inspiring exhibits aim to encourage love, respect and understanding of our oceans so that people are motivated to take action for their future well-being and to use marine and other natural resources sustainably.
