The Gallery


Dolphins have arrived at Georgia Aquarium! AT&T Dolphin Tales, Georgia Aquarium's new dolphin gallery and exhibit, is dedicated to creating memorable connections between humans and animals and helping guests better understand the majestic bottlenose dolphin. The new gallery includes a soaring, naturally-lit entrance lobby featuring an expansive underwater dolphin viewing window, through which guests have the opportunity to view dolphins and their naturally playful behaviors. You'll also often have the chance to interact with a guide or even one of our experienced animal trainers, who can share interesting and educational facts about these incredible, graceful animals. Georgia Aquarium believes in the power of connecting humans and dolphins, which is why we make the AT&T Dolphin Tales gallery and viewing window accessible to all guests at various times throughout the day. Ask a staff member at the AT&T Dolphin Tales gallery entrance for open viewing times.

The Show


But we didn't stop there. The entrance lobby leads to the AT&T Dolphin Tales theater, a state-of-the-art enclosed facility designed as the perfect backdrop for a spectacular musical theatrical performance highlighting the strong emotional bond between dolphins and humans. The show incorporates the beauty and agility of dolphins, live human actors, dramatic costuming and amazing effects. This memorable story is narrated by the StarSpinner, a mysterious seafaring adventurer who leads the way through an interactive journey across the oceans and through an epic battle against villains of the ocean. It's a timeless tale of good against evil, with exhilarating performances and a powerful, enlightening subtext of the importance of caring for and about aquatic creatures.

The AT&T Dolphin Tales show, a first-of-its-kind production, was more than two years in the making. An original score was recorded by a 61-piece orchestra at Sony Studios in Hollywood. Emmy-winning producers and directors, along with a team of talented individuals from TV, film and Broadway, developed the show. Some of the world's most accomplished animal trainers were recruited. Together, they have created an experience which entertains, motivates and inspires guests.
AT&T Dolphin Tales is included in Aquarium general admission, and a reservation is recommended to ensure your entry to this spectacular production. Special bookings are available for groups and events.
