Go behind-the-scenes

All Symposium attendees are invited to attend a free behind-the-scenes tour revealing the inner workings of the Two Oceans Aquarium. This means getting access to nooks and crannies that are usually only reserved for card-carrying staff members.

Learn to scuba dive

New to diving? Do a PADI Discover Scuba Diving course at the Aquarium and have the chance to dive with incredible species such as rescued sea turtles, rays, brindle bass, and spotted grunter in the I&J Ocean Exhibit.

Dive with ragged-tooth sharks

Qualified scuba divers can get up close to the Aquarium’s shiver of ragged-tooth sharks in the Predator Exhibit, swim among the schools of yellowtail and giant kob, and learn about the awesome predators that inhabit the South African coastline.

Make friends with a penguin

Meet the ocean’s cutest predator – the adorable northern rockhopper penguins of the Two Oceans Aquarium. Join the bird keeper for an informative, fun and exhilarating face-to-face encounter with these feathered friends. If you are lucky, one or two of them might decide to hop onto your lap!
