Go behind the scenes of our Cold Water Quest gallery for an up-close-and-personal penguin encounter. You’ll learn all about how we care for them, as well as our conservation initiatives — all of which are supported by your ticket dollars and participation in this 30-minute program.
For the safety of the animals, guests, and staff, all Animal Program participants will be required to:
- Wear a facial covering over mouth and nose AT ALL TIMES.
- Upon arrival have temperature checked and complete a questionnaire to assess recent illness and/or exposure to COVID.
Should there be a COVID risk identified, Georgia Aquarium reserves the right to reschedule participants for a later date.
- If you have had known exposure to a person who has tested positive for Covid 19, we ask that you reschedule your Animal Encounter for at least two weeks in the future. Rescheduling for this reason will not incur any additional charges or fees.
- All participants will be asked to take a short survey prior to their encounter or program to determine if they have had contact with a person who has tested positive for Covid 19. If that is confirmed, participants will be rescheduled for at least two weeks in the future without any additional charges or fees.
Minimum age to participate in the program is 7 years old. All guests 15 and under must be accompanied by a participating adult. Limit 3 children 15 years old and under per each participating adult.
All participants must be ticketed for the encounter. Parents or court appointed legal guardians must sign program liability waiver and animal interactive program guidelines for guests under 18.
