Two Oceans Aquarium: A Window on the Oceans of South Africa
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. The
Aquarium is one of the top tourist attractions in Cape Town and over 3000 living
sea animals, including sharks, fishes, seals, turtles and penguins can be seen
in this spectacular underwater nature reserve.
The 'two oceans' theme is illustrated by spectacular
exhibits, ranging from vibrant displays of Indian Ocean tropical fishes to the
magnificent 800,000 litre Kelp Forest Exhibit, which is one of only two living
kelp forests on display in the world. Visitors will be mesmerised by the gentle
sway of tall kelp plants and the play of dappled sunlight on silver fishes.
Discover life beyond the African waves with opportunities
such as diving with the sharks and the daily feeding of the fishes and penguins.
