Discover the unforgettable thrill of swimming with whale sharks at Georgia Aquarium.
Make a unique and unforgettable connection with one of the planet's most amazing marine creatures as you as you swim alongside the 'giants of the deep' in Georgia Aquarium's Ocean Voyager, a breathtaking marine exhibit that's nearly 30 feet deep and as big as a football field!
Known for their placid temperament, these beautiful, ethereal fish are definitely not whales - they are the the world's largest filter feeding sharks. You'll be transfixed by their languid, rhythmic movement and the unique patterns formed by their polka dot, luminescent markings.
The experience of gliding through the water with fish that are almost 40 feet long is totally unforgettable and Georgia Aquarium is the only place in the world where you're guaranteed to encounter them!. You'll also discover literally dozens of other amazing species including manta rays, goliath groupers and much, much more!
