Part I of III of the Georgia Aquarium’s Main Attraction, Ocean Voyager

The Georgia Aquarium prides itself on its Ocean Voyager exhibit, which is the largest artificial aquatic habitat in the United States.

To give you an idea of scale, it would take sixteen to eighteen months to fill it with a common garden hose.

This submersible was stationed just by the exhibit’s entrance.

The name’s justification may be found here .

The tank contains two exclusive animals, Manta Rays and Whale Sharks, along with Hammerhead sharks, Blue Sharks, Sand Tigers, Grouper, and various stingrays. The most impressive are the Whale Sharks, of which the Georgia Aquarium has four. They are all juveniles, and thus are not fully grown.

Here are some shots from a mural briefly detailing the process of shipping the Whale Sharks from Taiwan.

Here are the animals in all their majesty.
