With more than 100,000 creatures from 500 different species, Georgia Aquarium has more aquatic life than any other aquarium in the world. Stop at the entrance to note the times of the daily bottlenose dolphin shows, or arrange to swim with the whale sharks--the largest fish in the world. The aquarium features six galleries, each designed to represent a specific environment. You can visit touch tanks filled with sea stars, stingrays, shrimp, horseshoe crabs, and sea turtles. In the regional habitat exhibits, you can walk through a tunnel surrounded by water to observe fish from an underwater perspective. Consider a guided tour of the backstage area to learn the secrets behind the aquarium's popular exhibits. Put Georgia Aquarium into our Atlanta itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Atlanta.

  • Fun and informative but too crowded. The dolphin exhibit was too small and the show was hard to hear as it was too crowded children were screaming and parents kicking the chairs. All other exhibits...

  • Best aquarium I have ever been to! Clean, large, well laid out. Very nice staff. Loved the sea lion show. Just make sure you scan the QR code to reserve a spot for the show.

  • So much fun. Such an incredible experience. I would highly recommend the sea lion show. Very fun for all ages, and very entertaining. The dolphin show is a lot of fun. But when they say the first ten rows will get wet, they mean soaked. If you don't want to get wet I would recommend sitting a few rows back from row ten. Overall super fun experience, and I would totally come back again
  • I came here tonight to celebrate my dear friend daughters birthday. I’ve resided in Atlanta for many years, yet this was my first visit to the Georgia Aquarium. I must say, it was one of the most elegant and classiest event venue I’ve ever attended. It was intimate and appealing! The ambience was absolutely amazing!! 🐠 🐡 🐟 🦈 🐬 The staff did not miss a mark!! They were extremely friendly, attentive, and quite professional. And the food was beyond spectacular!!! As a licensed Caterer and trained Chef, I was simply amazed!!
