Seas the Summer at the Two Oceans Aquarium this December

by | Dec 19, 2023 | Arts & Culture, Green, News | 0 comments

20 December 2023 to 7 January 2024 open for longer - from 09h00 to19h00

Come and “Seas the Summer” at the Two Oceans Aquarium this holiday period, where all your festive family adventures are covered!

The Aquarium is open every day this holiday season – with new animals, exciting competitions, sustainable gifts, kids’ crafts, and a surprise appearance by Scuba Claus, there’s plenty of underwater fun to be had!

This summer holiday, visitors get even more time to explore the enchanting underwater world with our extended hours. From 20 December 2023 to 7 January 2024, the Aquarium will be open for longer – from 09h00 and closing only at 19h00!
The extended opening hours are perfect for those who would like to linger a little longer, miss the festive traffic on the way out of town, or enjoy a cool evening admiring the underwater world of the Aquarium. The “After 3 Special” fits in perfectly with the extended hours and is even more reason to explore the Aquarium until later in the afternoon.

What’s on for Seas the Summer

Little ones are in for a memorable treat! The I&J Children’s Play Centre has “seas’ed the summer” with exciting activities for the children. The Play Centre is a favourite for a reason!
