Georgia Aquarium: Interactive Animal Adventures

If you've never been to Georgia Aquarium, you're in for a real treat. Located in downtown Atlanta, it's the largest aquarium in the world with over 60 exhibits designed to enlighten and entertain. Experience the thrill of interacting with sharks in the petting pools, or watch the breathtaking central exhibit showcasing whale sharks and manta rays in a rare environment. River Scout is home to the animals that reside in the rivers of Africa, South America, Asia, and Georgia, including piranha, Asian small-clawed otters, and American alligators. Georgia Explorer gives visitors an up-close-and-personal look at a loggerhead sea turtle and lionfish. With a fun-filled lineup of exciting events, interesting aquatic creatures, and educational activities for students of all ages, the aquarium is always a great time. You'll have an opportunity to uncover Georgia Aquarium's secrets as well as explore exhibits from a different perspective when you reserve a tour. There are four different tour options: Sea Keepers Tour, Quick Dip, Shark Themed Family Tour, and VIP Tour, so make sure to sign up in advance.
