About
Georgia Aquarium is the world's most magical aquarium. Situated near Centennial Olympic Park and World of Coca-Cola in downtown Atlanta,Georgia, Georgia Aquarium offers its guests an experience like no other. Across six separate galleries, with more than 70 amazing habitats, 10 million gallons of water and thousands of species of marine animals, guests will marvel at, learn about and come to better understand such majestic aquatic animals as whale sharks, manta rays, dolphins, beluga whales, sea otters, African penguins and thousands of species of exotic fish and other animals. The spectacular AT&T Dolphin Tales show combines incredible natural animal behaviors with dynamic theatrics, a Broadway-inspired musical score and a compelling story, which together underscore the connection between humans and the animal world. The animated "Deepo's Undersea 3D Wondershow," for all ages, tells an entertaining but important story about conserving and protecting animals and their natural environment. Cafe Aquaria offers delicious sandwiches, salads, pizza, pasta and delectable desserts. Two gift shops give visitors the chance to take home a treasured collectible. Special animal encounter programs offer the chance to go behind the scenes and come face-to-face with dolphins, sea otters and penguins. Guests can even swim or dive with whale sharks and manta rays in the world's largest aquarium habitat (at 6.3 Million gallons), Ocean Voyager built by the Home Depot. And an onsite parking deck immediately adjacent to the aquarium means quick, easy-to-find and affordable parking.

Go!!!

Georgia Aquarium is the largest in the world which is why it can house Whale sharks and giant manta rays! These are amazing, extraordinary animals and I could sit and watch them for hours. The whale sharks and manta rays make it worth the trip. We arrived at 2:00 and the animals stayed at the top of the tank. We left to wander the rest of the aquarium, came back at 3 and it was feeding time. After that the animals swam deep in the aquarium and it was much easier to see them. They are stunning! The rest of the aquarium if nice (especially the sharks) but the star of the show is the giant aquarium tank.

Good selection of exhibits and activities for the kids. so much to see. What was supposed to be a few hour visit turned into the whole day. we could have spent a couple of days there. We will be sure to plan another visit the next time we are in Atlanta.

Whale sharks
Jun 2021 • Family
This place is great. I've been to a few aquariums around the States and none compare to here. There is so much to see from the smallest sea creatures to some of the biggest. Our favorites were the whale sharks, beluga whales, dolphins, and sea otters. Highly recommend this aquarium

Seriously could go everyday!
Oct 2021 • Couples
This place was stunning. I could have stayed for days. We went thinking oh we will just stay a couple hours and be good. No way we were there till it closed. Just sitting watching the fish, sharks, otters etc. Amazing and relaxing. Best aquarium I've ever seen. You can also tell they take great care of all the creatures big and small. I've paid more money at other aquariums and gotten way less out of them. Do not hesitate, go you will not be disappointed.

Amazing!
Oct 2021
What an amazing experience. The aquarium is massive. The shark tank was incredible and very tranquil. One of the employees chatted with us about sharks, myths and facts. She was a wealth of knowledge. The whales, dolphin, otters and everything else was great, but the whale sharks blew me away. I knew they were there, but until you experience the size of them swimming over the tube you're in you can't prepare for it.

Communication about special events and scheduling is awful!
Oct 2021 • Family
Call ahead to check on events! We reserved a time to enter at 2 pm. When we entered, we found out they close an hour early for an event. Then, at 4, we found out they are closing the entire second floor an hour earlier than the early close time. There was no prior communication about this.

Yes, the aquarium was great! We had a good time overall, and it was definitely worth the money, after we got a refund for one of our tickets due to the issue.

One more thing. The dolphin show. Show up on time or they will keep you from entering.

What Sharks and Tiger Sharks!!!
Oct 2021 • Family
I could have stayed here all day! The best aquarium I have ever been to. Everything was great! The docents were very informative and helpful! We did the penguin interactive experience and I did the cage dive with sharks. The penguin experience was great and I suggest it was for everyone because they make it very intimate. There were only 6 people in our experience. You get to pet a penguin and learn a lot about penguins. The cage dive is a new experience that they just started this year. It was fantastic! The staff were very supportive and that made the experience one of a kind! The whale sharks and the sharks exhibits were my favorite! This is an all-day visit!!

A must see!
Sep 2021 • Couples
This place is awesome!! My husband and I easily spent 4 1/2 hours in there without even looking at our watches , never bored! It’s a wonderful experience for all! We did go to all the shows they offered, they’re only about 15 minutes each so it’s a nice break to sit down and be entertained. There is a dolphin show, Sea lion show and a 4D show regarding our planet. There is a couple of gift shops and there is a restaurant that has an upper level to accommodate more people.
They do it has that you wear your mask in the aquarium.

The best!
Sep 2021 • Friends
We came on a Friday morning which was s lot better then a weekend. We had a little trouble with our tickets at first, Natasha & Danielle at Guest Service went above and beyond to help us ! They were very patient and extremely nice! The aquarium doesnt need another great review. The pictures and the other reviews really say it all! The cafe wasnt as bad as people claimed it to be. It was a little pricey but what do you expect? You could spend hours here!
