Make Memorable Moments at Cape Town’s Only Aquarium

Throw a party unlike any other at the Mother City’s underwater wonderland

Celebrate the end of another successful year surrounded by the magical creatures that reside at the Two Oceans Aquarium. This state-of-the-art aquatic educational and entertainment centre offers spectacular venues and packages for parties both big and small. Whether you’re looking to host a sit-down dinner metres from ragged-tooth sharks or you’re interested in having extra terrestrial-like jellyfish fascinate your guests during a walkabout cocktail party, then this venue is for you.

The setting alone is bound to make it a memorable affair, but it’s the attention to detail and unique treatment of each event that will make your function truly unforgettable.

The folks at Two Oceans are as flexible as an octopus when it comes to organising a special occasion. Whether it be a corporate celebration, birthday party, conference or anniversary; the only limits are set by your budget. Basic equipment (AV equipment, furniture, cutlery, crockery and glassware) comes standard with a booking, which also includes free access to the aquarium until 6pm for events planned during the day. The team at the underwater wonderland can also provide:

  • Food and beverage catering

  • Evening tours with knowledgeable guides

  • Waitrons and bartenders

  • Recommendations on trusted outside vendors, like florists, entertainers, decorators and photographers
