Holiday Tree Lighting 1

Holiday Tree Lighting

Starting on November 10th, join us as we welcome guests and kick off each day of the holiday season by lighting our 42-foot live tree! The tree lighting will take place in the atrium at 10AM every morning.


Photos with Santa Claus

No holiday season is complete without a snapshot with Santa. During your aquarium visit, capture a photograph with Georgia Aquarium’s own seaside St. Nick. Santa is available for kids of all ages during scheduled dates and times. He can’t wait to hear all of your holiday wishes.


Holiday Themed Presentations

Join us this holiday season as we celebrate the spirit of giving. Each day during Holidays at Georgia Aquarium, we’ll be featuring exciting new presentations showcasing our amazing animals and teaching guests all about the bottlenose dolphin and California sea lion in fun and festive ways. Admission into these presentations is free with your general admission ticket, as long as you make a reservation on the day of your visit.


Scuba Claus

We all know Santa flies his sleigh through the night sky, but did you know he also loves to scuba dive? Come see if you can spot Mr. Claus himself diving among the whale sharks and manta rays in one of the world’s largest marine habitats, Ocean Voyager Built by The Home Depot. You won’t want to miss this holiday fun under the waves.

Live Music

The holidays are upon us, and we’re celebrating all season long with Georgia State University School of Music.

Get into the holiday spirit as various ensembles perform your favorite classics every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30am-4pm, November 11th through December 23rd.
