Two Oceans Aquarium#14 in Best Things To Do in Cape Town
If you're visiting Cape Town with children, a trip to the Two Oceans Aquarium is a must. Located on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront—near the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans—this aquarium houses more than 3,000 creatures, including penguins, sharks, and turtles. Your kids will love learning about the different types of wildlife found in these two oceans and in bodies of water around the world. You can also watch animal feedings and even take a swim in the shark tank (don't worry, it's perfectly safe).
While some visitors rave about the diversity of wildlife found here, others have mixed feelings about the aquarium. As one TripAdvisor user puts it, "[The aquarium] offers a number of hands-on activities with helpful staff. [I] would only recommend if you had extra time in Cape Town as there is so much more to do."
The Two Oceans Aquarium is open every day from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is 100 ZAR (roughly $13 USD) for adults and 50 to 78 ZAR ($6 to $10 USD) for children ages 4 to 17; kids younger than 4 can enter for free. To learn more, visit the Two Oceans Aquarium website.
