The Two Oceans is a nice acquarium and I think they have good displays with the predator tank something I really enjoy. It’s my 2 year old daughters favourite place. I think it’s a safe, fun environment for kids.

This Aquarium is a wonderful experience for the whole family. Unique and interesting sea creatures to see as well as very informative displays. This is a wonderful place to spend some quality time learning about the environment and watching the fish and penguins.

The thing I love about this aquarium is that they have tried to show the fish as naturally as possible. The kelp forest is the best example I have seen of a natural setting. Having done scuba diving in the wild, I am particularly fond...More

I really enjoyed my visit to the aquarium. It was beautifully maintained, imaginative, and at the same time, informative (I learned the difference between a ray and a skate, for example). Don't miss the penguins.
