The Aquarium opened its doors on 13 November 1995 and has since welcomed more than 10 million visitors of which 6 million have been local, establishing it as a firm favourite with local and international travellers. It is a well-respected organisation within the international aquarium and tourism industries and a leading conservation and education facility.
“It is incredible to think that the Two Oceans Aquarium is a quarter of a century old. It has grown into a much-loved and well-respected facility with conservation, education and research at its heart. We have many achievements to celebrate and these achievements have been made possible by our visitors, our members who have chosen to become part of the Aquarium family, our partners who have assisted us in growing the Aquarium’s reputation locally and internationally, and our staff and volunteers who have dedicated themselves to saving the ocean. Thank you for all your support over the years and we look forward to even greater achievements in the next 25 years,” said Michael Farquhar, CEO of the Two Oceans Aquarium.
Happy birthday to this amazing underwater landmark and icon!
