What people are saying about Two Oceans Aquarium

The overall experience with the City Pass was amazing. You just need to do a lot of activities to get the value of the purchase. One note: If you are doing the Vredenheim Big Cat Park - do not put in the adress in the Brochure. We gave the adress to our Uber driver and ended up at a gas station 5km away from the park. Put in Vredenheim Big Cat Park directly.

We thoroughly enjoyed the aquarium. We had a relative in a wheelchair, borrowed from the aquarium, and we asked the Manager if we could borrow it to get the shopping mall to get to the next wheelchair hire, he very kindly walked us to the shopping mall and waited whilst we got the new chair! So kind and helpful :)

Great ticket lots included although not all are central Cape Town, we had other trips booked which enabled us to get the most use out of it. The premium ticket was well worth it too we did the Shark Diving

The Aquarium was excellent and very breathtaking. Enjoyed every moment

Wonderful experience. Definitely worth visiting in Cape Town.
