  • Very enjoyable educational journey here in Two Oceans. Great display of marine biology and mammals. The children are at their most refreshed and joyful moments here. Quite over priced, do not you think? But everything is great, all is well, good facilities. Good people and good vacation. Awesome
  • Missed the 5th star as I believe it is slightly over-priced making it inaccessible to many South Africans. **South African Citizens can go for FREE during your Birthday week** (Phone in to verify this is still a promotion before going) Other than the price, it is a stunning aquarium, well maintained and really interesting. Absolutely love the jellyfish exhibit. The whole experience is great for children and highly educational.
