From as little as R500, you can scuba dive – no cage required – with the ragged-tooth sharks and other magnificent predators from the South African coast in the 2-million litre I&J Predator Exhibit of the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront.
This all-weather experience cannot be recreated in a natural environment. Up close and personal, guaranteed sightings every day!
The I&J Predator Exhibit contains a collection of predators. Without a doubt, the ragged-tooth sharks are the most popular animals in the Two Oceans Aquarium and are visible through an enormous 11m-wide by 4m-high acrylic panel or semi-tunnel which hugs the perimeter of the exhibit.
This exhibit also showcases an impressive collection of predatory fish from the South African south coast. These include shoals of yellowtail, garrick, dusky kob and black mussel cracker.
There are several spectacular viewing points which affords visitors close encounters with the sharks, rays, a loggerhead turtle, a green sea turtle and fish.
Got a scuba licence? You can dive in this exhibit. The animals in the I&J Predator Exhibit are fed daily at 15h00. Sharks are fed at 15h00 on Sundays.
All divers must be qualified with a minimum Open Water 1 qualification and must present their dive card, logbook or certificate upon arrival. But, if you’re not a diver yet, there’s no better place to learn than with the Two Oceans Aquarium.
