Be among the first to see the brand new I&J Ocean Exhibit and the mesmerising Jelly Gallery at the Two Oceans Aquarium.
The I&J Ocean Exhibit features yellowfin tuna and striped bonito – two species never displayed before in the Aquarium. Other animals include graceful rays and turtles.
Daily feeds take place at 12pm (hand-feeding by a diver) and at 2pm (drop feed).
Views onto this majestic exhibit include a 9m wide by 4m high seamless window and a 10m long full tunnel where you can get eye-to-eye with the animals.
The Jelly Gallery forms the entrance to the I&J Ocean Exhibit and houses various jelly species in a novel and mesmerising way. Discover the magic of jellies and watch elegant moon, box and blue blubber jellies as they pulsate through the water. The beauty of these animals is heightened through the use of special effects in the Gallery.
Be sure to visit the Ocean Basket Kelp Forest Exhibit before it closes for renovations. This exhibit, the only one of its kind in Africa, houses South Africa’s national fish – the galjoen – as well as red stumpnose and white steenbras.
As always there is plenty to entertain the small fry – from puppet shows and arts and crafts to the Nemo Exhibit and the new Jelly Babies photo opportunity next to the entrance of the Jelly Gallery.
Don’t miss “Cape Town’s Underwater Wilderness”, an underwater photography exhibition featuring spectacular images. Bringing together nine award-winning photographers and showcasing 90 photos, the exhibition not only shows the beauty found below the waves of the Western Cape shores, but also aims to promote diving opportunities around Cape Town.
