The Two Oceans Aquarium is an obvious choice when you’re bored, between the many different exhibits available for the public, it is impossible not to be fascinated by the place. Here are a few of the most popular exhibits you might wish to visit.


In July 2017, the last of the ragged-tooth sharks were added to the Two Oceans Aquarium’s revamped Predator Exhibit. This brought to an end to a year of building and planning, and sets us on an exciting path of optimising the exhibit. Over the coming months, we will decide which other animals to display along with the sharks.  Watch the shark feed every Sunday at 15h00.


This exhibit is home to a colony of African penguins, some rescued rockhopper penguins, an African black oystercatcher, a molesnake, a Western leopard toad and common platannas. A small selection of freshwater fish, indigenous and alien, to our Western Cape rivers can also be viewed in several pools. A bird hide, overlooking the rockhopper rookery, offers people a place to sit and relax in this peaceful riverine environment.


At 1.6 million litres, the I&J Ocean Exhibit provides a massive home to rays, musselcrackers, green sea turtles, a giant guitarfish and much more. Whether viewed from the 10-metre long transparent tunnel or the giant viewing window – the I&J Ocean Exhibit is your glimpse into South Africa’s warm waters.
