The Two Oceans Aquarium offers more than 3000 animals in 9 galleries, including a room full of eerily-lit jellyfish, an underwater tunnel and the I&J Ocean Exhibit which offers opportunities for qualified divers. There is also an interactive exhibit where visitors can touch plants and animals or view them under a microscope, a children’s activity centre, and a venue for birthday parties. Occasionally, the Aquarium hosts sleepovers for members in front of the I&J Ocean Exhibit.
“The first thing I did as I walked into the tunnel was to gaze up through the glass as a giant guitarfish floated across the sky, quickly followed by a Blue stingray.” Read Nwabisa Mbana’s review of a recent visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium.
