Two Oceans Aquarium

The southern tip of the African continent is the meeting place of two mighty and bountiful oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic. The Two Oceans Aquarium on the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is ideally positioned to showcase the incredible diversity of marine life found in these two oceans.

Vision & Mission

Our awe-inspiring exhibits aim to encourage love, respect and understanding of our oceans so that people are motivated to take action for their future well-being and to use marine and other natural resources sustainably.

Our staff and volunteers

A small and dedicated staff of approximately 60 supports the Two Oceans Aquarium. They are supported by a number of volunteers, whose work is also invaluable to the Aquarium.


The Two Oceans Aquarium is a certified Platinum member of the Heritage Environmental Rating Programme. Platinum status is the highest level of achievement in this internationally recognised eco-labelling programme.
