uShaka Marine World Tours

Whether it’s zipping down a water slide at the Wet N’ Wild park, or experiencing marine life underwater from a viewing platform at Sea World, uShaka Marine World is one of the largest attractions on Durban’s Golden Mile. Visit the world’s 5th largest aquarium to find dolphins, reef fish, and sharks cruise through waters designed around sunken shipwrecks, and to fly down a water slide, relax on uShaka Beach, and watch as penguins waddle around on the rocks all in an afternoon.

You can also upgrade your ticket to include snorkeling in the lagoon, or travelers with young children can visit the touch pool to feel slippery starfish and sea cucumbers. Although Viator tours do not include these activities, you can purchase separate tickets to dive in the shark tank, feed the rays, or encounter a dolphin or seal.

Practical Info

You’ll find uShaka Marine World on the coast, wedged between the southern edge of the Golden Mile and Durban Harbor. It takes eight minutes to drive to the park from central Durban, but you can also reach the parks via the Durban "people mover" that runs every 15 minutes. The park is open everyday from 9am to 5pm, and admission costs $14. Each of the parks have separate entrance fees, though you can also buy a combo pass to visit multiple parks.

Expect to spend an entire day if visiting all of the parks, or half a day if you only plan to visit the Sea World aquarium. There is no outside food or drink allowed, and be sure to pack sunscreen, a swimsuit, and towel if you plan to visit the water park.

Did You Know: There are 32 different tanks inside Sea World—one of which even has a tiger shark.
