The staff here is great and the exhibitions are good, especially the Knysna Seahorse exhibition. The curio shop has a great variety of souvenirs that range from postcards to apparel. There's everything for everyone. I found the visit interesting, but I'm not hurrying back.

No construction as some reviewers mentioned. Great exhibits for all ages! We only had an hour to spend here before our tour to Robben Island but we could have easily spent another hour or so. Must see while in CPT with kids of all ages.

Very good experience, lots of different species from the two oceans. It’s a must if you bring the kids. Many interactive games and explanations for them. It’s worth the visit.

Though we’d get to snorkel in the tank but I must have read it wrong. We did get to go into the tank with the turtles and spend quite a bit of time with them. Got to wear a wet suit which I’d help with...More
