About Two Oceans Aquarium

As amazing as it sounds, the Two Ocean Aquarium is a mix of wonderful sea animals and a bunch of fun activities. You will fall in love with the cute penguins and marvel at the "Sea" life under the microscope. There is something for everyone here. Explore the exhibits, learn about marine life, and immerse yourself in the wonders of the deep ocean. There is an informative feeding show every day and is the most fun to watch.

Check the timings and catch a feeding show to experience the thrill and to know more about the sea creatures. Get close to the quirky penguins who love sitting in people's laps!
