 The staff at the Georgia Aquarium have made a few changes to ensure the safety of their guests, animals and employees. 

  • Tickets are only valid during the time block selected. (9am-12pm) (1pm-4pm) or (5pm-8pm) This ensures time to clean and sanitize the exhibits between visitor groups. Also, Aquarium capacity is very limited during this time to allow for proper social distancing. 


  • All guests must consent to a contactless temperature scan prior to entering the building. Anyone that exhibits a temperature of 100.4° or higher will not be permitted to enter. 


  • Georgia Aquarium strongly suggests that all guests who are able to wear a mask, do so. All staff members are required to wear masks and souvenir masks will be available for purchase. 


  • All unique experiences are temporarily suspended. This includes behind-the-scenes tours, sleepovers, and animal interactions shows. 


  • All tickets are now single price regardless of arrival time.


  • The Aquarium main entrance will be closed. Guests will be assigned a designated alternate entrance with their ticket purchase and will receive a suggested tour route to make their way through the facility.
