Tomorrow is April 18 – the final day to submit your tax documents for the year. While taxes are normally due annually on April 15, that falls on a Saturday this year, which gives tax payers three extra days to file. Whether you’re fortunate enough to receive a refund, or if you’re required to pay more, the process of filing your taxes can be a stressful one.
Take a few deep breaths and head over to Georgia Aquarium’s Facebook on Tuesday, April 18 at 9:30 a.m. as we live-stream our new webcam of our Ocean Voyager Built by The Home Depot gallery. Unwind and de-stress as you watch whale sharks, manta rays, and thousands of other animals swim in 6.3 million gallons, gliding effortlessly through the water.
If you’re already planning ahead for next year’s tax season, all donations to Georgia Aquarium are tax-deductible! As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we rely on the support of our community to ensure that we can continue our groundbreaking research initiatives, educational programs, and conservation efforts.

If you’re in need of more relaxation, take a trip to Georgia Aquarium to become fully mesmerized by the thousands of fish swimming all around you. When you visit Georgia Aquarium, just by purchasing a ticket, you’re doing an ocean of good. Not only are you visiting the largest aquarium in North America, but your ticket proceeds go directly to:
- Inspiring wonder: 50,000 Title I school children who would not otherwise have the chance to visit the Aquarium are given the opportunity through our Sponsored Education Admissions (SEA) program.
- Engaging our community: We are able to partner with organizations that provide wounded veterans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dive in our Ocean Voyager Built by The Home Depot habitat through our Veterans Immersion Program.
- Expanding awareness: From studying the migratory patterns of manta rays to helping coral reef restoration in the Florida Keys, our research projects increase our understanding of our ocean through collaborative conservation and research efforts.
