Animal Interactions

Here at Georgia Aquarium, we know how important creating the link people and nature can be. The animals in our care are ambassadors for their species, inspiring our guests every day. Now you can go behind the scenes and enjoy an exclusive, up-close and personal interaction with our aquatic animals through on of our Animal Interactions!

Guests have the option to participate in several different Animal Interactions.  From our Journey with Gentle Giants Swim or Dive Programs or the incredible Beluga Interaction Program.

In our Beluga Interaction Program, you will get to know Georgia Aquarium’s beluga whales by coming face to face with these engaging arctic mammals under the guidance of one of our fantastic animal caretakers. 

Our Journey with Gentle Giants interactive programs are the only opportunity in the world where you are guaranteed to swim with the largest fish in the world, the whale shark, in Georgia Aquarium’s Ocean Voyager exhibit. This 6.3 million gallon exhibit houses thousands of fish including zebra sharks, sawfish and more!
