Get up close and personal with beluga whales at The Georgia Aquarium

Home to more than 8.5 million gallons of marine and fresh water and over 120,000 animals, the Georgia Aquarium is the world’s largest aquarium. The aquarium is renowned for its young whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, bottlenose dolphins and beluga whales; some of which visitors can get up close and personal with!

The world’s largest aquarium

The aquarium was mostly funded by Home Depot co-founder Bernard Marcus, who gave a generous $250 million, which helped the aquarium to become the world’s biggest and best. Located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium is a nine-acre leading-edge facility that represents over 500 different marine species.

Divided into various marine-life areas, visitors have the chance to admire animals from all types of habitats. The Cold Water Quest is one of the most popular areas: a habitat for creatures that are used to living in colder, icier climates. Beluga whales, California sea lions, penguins, spider crabs and even a giant Pacific octopus can be found here… no wonder it’s such a popular attraction! The Ocean Voyager is equally popular; watch whale sharks, stingrays and groupers swim delicately through the through a 100-foot-long saltwater tunnel.
