Aquarium offers visitors discounted entrance fees

The “After 3 Special” has been extended until further notice, due to popular demand.  That’s the exciting announcement from Two Oceans Aquarium!  It means that visitors can take advantage of this late-afternoon promotion offer over the Easter weekend and beyond.

As of 26 January, the Aquarium has been offering visitors discounted entrance fees for tickets purchased after 15h00 daily as part of its “After 3 Special”. The special entrance fees are only applicable to tickets bought onsite at the Aquarium’s ticket office from 15h00 onwards, and are only valid for entry on the day that the tickets were bought.

The Two Oceans Aquarium has introduced this special discounted entrance fee for those who would like an underwater escape adventure to end the day, once the household chores and shopping are done and home-schooling has wrapped for the day.

From 1 April 2021 until 31 March 2022 the discounted rates are as follows:

  • Adults: R155 (normally R210)
  • Children 4-17 years, SA pensioners and students: R120 (normally R160)
