Two Oceans Aquarium

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.

Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of the Two Oceans Aquarium where the oceans come alive in magnificent colours and a variety of shapes and sizes. This all-weather venue is an ideal destination for families to enjoy and young and old will have the opportunity to explore below the waterline and discover a world hidden from many.

AfriSam Children’s Play Centre
The AfriSam Children’s Play Centre with its “Day at the Beach” theme, offers oceans of fun for children between four and ten years of age. The sandpit and the ball pond are firm favourites with the little ones. Mom and dad can enjoy a snack from the tuck-shop and watch the Rockhopper penguins frolic underwater, while the kids take part in the arts and crafts programme or watch a puppet show. Each puppet show has an educational theme and tackle subjects like the food chain, litter and the fragility of the ecosystem in a fun and interactive way, drawing the kids in and teaching them without them even realising it. The Centre also has its own modular play system for children needing to let off some steam!

Dedicated children’s play centre in restaurant
The Aquarium’s restaurant, Shoreline Café, houses a dedicated children’s play centre complete with ‘grass’ and funky, durable made-for-kids furniture as well as a modular play system. The Play centre (sponsored by I&J) is manned by dedicated staff who oversea the children’s play time.
