Coastal Predators
A 4-D Experience

It is the greatest gathering of ocean predators on the planet. Dolphins, sharks,whales and seals converge to feast along the breathtaking South African coast for an astonishing underwater Armageddon. Each year billions of sardines are pushed into the shallows as the ocean’s most incredible animals forego natural instincts towards each other to come together for a common quest. Stunning visuals and high octane action with 4-D effects bring this great spectacle to life as you dive into this feeding frenzy of epic proportions.

Coming Soon: 

Rudolph & Polar Express 4-D

November 24, 2017 to January 7, 2018

This magical 4-D experience means you will not only watch Rudolph on his epic adventure, you will feel it. You’ll feel the snow against your face and a rumble in your chair as the Abominable Snow Monster appears. Do your Aquarium holiday traditions include the Polar Express? Fret not, you can hop on this 4-D film at the first 4-D show of the day for more 4-D action.
