Delve into the underwater diversity at East London Aquarium, a small animal observation and educational center that brings the region's marine heritage to life. Opened in 1931, the aquarium ranks as the oldest in the country, and regularly brings in abused, neglected, or injured animals, and rehabilitates them until they can return to the wild. Step out onto the wooden boardwalk to catch sights of dolphins and whales (including right and humpback) off the coast, and pay a visit to the colony of African penguins on site.
