Georgia Aquarium’s New Shark Exhibit Is Officially Opening To The Public This Month

You can get face-to-face with the ‘predators of the deep.’

The Georgia Aquarium is bringing you just inches away from one of the most feared animals on the planet at its newest gallery, SHARKS! Predators of the Deep.

After years in the making, the highly-anticipated exhibit will be open to the public on October 23.

You can gaze in awe at five different species of these underwater predators — hammerheads, silvertips, sand tigers, silky sharks and tiger sharks — swimming in the 20-foot-deep, 185-foot-long exhibit through enormous floor-to-ceiling windows.

Thousands of fish will also swim throughout the 1.2 million gallons of saltwater inside the habitat. 

If you want to get really hands-on with the predators of the sea, the aquarium has two brand-new immersive experiences.

In the first, guests can wade into an immersion pool where they will learn about zebra sharks and stingrays while in the water with the animals.

The second experience plunges you deep into the waters of the main habitat inside a dive cage that moves underwater, bringing you face-to-face with the sharks.
