Delve into the fascinating undersea world of the Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in North America with over 100,000 animals in 10 million gallons (37,854 cbm) of water. Encounter whale sharks, dolphins, and beluga whales as you tour the 6 themed aquatic galleries.
In the River Scout gallery, check out voracious piranha, Asian small-clawed otters, and even albino alligators. At the Ocean Voyager exhibit, admire magnificent and gentle whale sharks—the only 4 in North America. From the 100-foot (30-m) underwater tunnel, gaze up at elegant and rare manta rays among the 50 other fish species in the waters above you.
Make your way to Cold Water Quest for an up-close look at the aquarium's 4 beluga whales. These amazing mammals have the ability to swim backward to maneuver through Arctic ice. Sharing these chilly depths are endangered African penguins and sprawling Japanese spider crabs.
Head to warmer waters at the Tropical Diver gallery, where you can see jellyfish, eels, and a spectacularly colorful living reef display teeming with tropical sea life. In the Georgia Explorer gallery, get a hands-on experience by leaning over tide pools filled with horseshoe crabs and sea stars. Don't miss the 4-D theater, where you can take an animated undersea journey with singing sea turtles and attentive sharks.
End your day at the Dolphin Theater for a chance to see these attentive, chattering marine creatures swimming good-naturedly in their tank.
