You visit Georgia Aquarium to be dazzled by over 500 species of aquatic animals, learn about worldwide conservation efforts and come face-to-face with whale sharks in the only place you’re guaranteed to see them in the Western Hemisphere. But, let’s be honest with each other—you also want that perfect shot for Instagram. We love those #FINtasticFan photos as much as you do! That’s why we’re highlighting the most Insta-worthy spots at the Aquarium for every type of Instagrammer out there.
The Colorful Creative
If you’re known for your Instagram's pop of color, look no further than Tropical Diver. Between the vibrant mural that welcomes you and the even more vibrant marine life, you’ll definitely make a splash. Don’t forget to check out River Scout for those unexpected bright hues!
The Silhouetted Star
Achieve those highly sought-after silhouette photos in the bubble windows of Ocean Voyager and River Scout. Pro tip: the largest bubble window is located in Ocean Voyager across from the touch pool after the tunnel.
The Candid Connoisseur
Look cool, casual and candid in the Ocean Voyager tunnel that immerses you with some of the world’s most incredible marine life. Insider tip: Though less photographed, the penguin crawl tunnel in Cold Water Quest is the perfect place to get a snap of you face-to-face with a penguin.
The Animal Aficionado
From the jellies and lionfish that reside in Tropical Diver, to the whale sharks and mantas of Ocean Voyager, there are hundreds of stunning photo-ops for budding nature photographers. Be sure to swing by Cold Water Quest a few times to try your luck at getting a snap of our elusive giant Pacific octopus!
The Stupendous Squad
Strike a pose with your friends in front of the massive Ocean Voyager viewing window or capture a moment with your family in front of Tropical Diver’s wall-to-ceiling coral reef. Extra points if you can capture a Boomerang of a wave as it crashes over the reef!
The Hidden Gem Hunter
Karen Anderson, founder of Tiny Doors Atlanta, created one of her masterpieces uniquely for Georgia Aquarium in 2018. Next time you’re on a quest to Ocean Voyager, take a moment to stop outside the entrance to snap a pic of her charming 6-inch tall door. Don’t forget to tag #TinyDoorsATL!
