On display are four young whale sharks, two beluga whales and two manta rays.
The Georgia Aquarium is the only institution outside of Asia that is home to the largest living fish species. It exhibits the Great Hammerhead sharks and is one of four aquariums in the world that displays manta rays.
The Aquarium has five different galleries that display corresponding specific environments: Georgia Explorer, Tropical Diver, Ocean Voyager, Cold Water Quest, and River Scout. The Ocean Voyager has the second largest window and features a 30 meter underwater tunnel.
