March 13, 2020: After careful consideration, we have made the decision to close Georgia Aquarium to public guests beginning Saturday, March 14, 2020 for a two-week period. We have been closely monitoring the ever-evolving situation around COVID-19 and continue to be committed to the health and wellbeing of our guests, staff, volunteers, and animals.

What this means:

  • We will close to the public beginning Saturday, March 14, 2020 and will remain closed until at least the end of the month. At this time, we plan to reopen on Saturday, March 28, 2020. We will continually reassess our operating schedule until then.
  • All Animal Interactive Programs, animal encounters, sleepover programs, swims & dives, birthday parties, and other programming are cancelled.
  • Our Manta Race 5K and Sips Under the Sea: Y2K events are cancelled.
  • Please call the Call Center at 404-581-4000 to reschedule your tickets or experiences for another date, receive a credit for future use, or request a refund.
  • We implemented enhanced cleaning procedures when awareness for COVID-19 heightened and will continue to sanitize and clean our facility even during our closure to the public.
  • Our animals will receive uninterrupted care from our trainers, aquarists, and veterinarians.
  • We will continue to follow guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and will update operations and policies as necessary.

This decision was not made lightly, and we understand the complexities of this evolving situation. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you all in the future. Stay safe!
