The Two Oceans Aquarium must rank as one of Cape Towns top attractions. It is a world class aquarium and provides a way for non-underwater photographers to get some stunning "underwater" shots. With patience and practice you can master the technique of photographing at the 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. The Aquarium is one of the top tourist attractions in Cape Town and over 3000 living sea animals, including sharks, fishes, turtles and penguins can be seen in this spectacular underwater nature reserve.
Feeding times in the various exhibits are a great time to see some of the species in action. Check the aquarium websites for more info and opening times etc.
