The new I&J Ocean Exhibit is the first major construction for the Aquarium in nearly 21 years. The exhibit holds 1.6 million litres of seawater at a temperature of between 20 and 24 degrees Celsius. The depth of the exhibit stands at 6 metres. It is the first exhibit of its kind in South Africa to boast a full 10-metre long tunnel. The exhibit’s main viewing window is a continuous 9 metre-wide panel, which is 4 metres high and weighs 22 tonnes.
Entertainment for the evening will include Live Jazz, and there will be a special performance from the traditional Cape Minstrels.
