Two Oceans Aquarium

I have been looking at some of my older photos the last few days and decided to end the month with a post about a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town in July 2007.  I visited the aquarium with one of my friends who live in Cape Town.  We try to do something interesting evertime we get together. (See here and here for places we visited on previous weekends) 

It was a very cold, winter weekend when I went to visit Cape Town.  It was raining and some of the mountains had snow on them.  We drove into the city to the Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront on Saturday morning and arrived about 8:30. 

After paying our entry fees we started to walk through the different exhibits.  There is a lot of information on display about each of the species.  We saw exhibits of the following:

  • Atlantic Ocean Gallery with translucent jellies and seahorses
  • Indian Ocean Gallery with Western clownfish (or Nemo’s), honeycomb eels and a coral exhibit
  • Predator Exhibit in an enormaous tank with sharks and other predatory fish from South Africa
  • The Kelp Forest Exhibit was one  of my favorites.  It is very relaxing sit and watch the fish swimming around between the underwater plants
