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.

Impressive place, the displays are good, and the main tank impressive. If you have been to other aquariums then this is an extension of others. The weekends are turmoil. Parents do not control their children, food prices high and quality bad.

While I prefer the Tennessee Aquarium, the Atlanta Aquarium has much to offer. Bundle it with other local attractions and you have a day!

It was ok and interesting but for the money I expected more. To see the full expanse, you have to pay much more for extra access. Check that off the list and probably never again.

Fortunately we made it to the aquarium early and avoided the crowds for the first hour or so of the visit. After that, we were packed like sardines trying to navigate from exhibit to exhibit. Missed the whale shark the crowds were too much. The dolphin show was very entertaining and the aquarium did offer numerous animals on exhibit. Food... More

As a Christmas present I booked the Whale Shark dive for our Family though our local dive shop. This trip was AWESOME!. The Georgia Aquarium Staff was so accommodating. My Husband ended up with an ear infection so could not dive and they worked with us so he could dive a different time. My sons and I (19yo, 12yo,13yo) dove... More

The aquarium is attractive and a bit pricey. I am delighted that I did the behind-the-scenes tour. Otherwise, the visit was an average aquarium visit. The belugas are stunning, however their habitat seemed "cramped". LOTS of noise with little ones running hither and fro.

The Beluga Whale interaction was by far one of the best decisions ever! The staff was very friendly and provided tons of information about Beluga Whales. The price is well worth it and it is a must see attraction.

Free pirate princess day, best animals, nicest aquarium around! Great for all ages our children are 2-10 and all 4 were busy and interested the entire time at the aquarium. Food was decent too! Not too crowded on this day and staff were very friendly. We think one of the staff was a twin to Jack Sparrow! Kids loved the... More
