We were invited to take a “Behind the Seas” tour at Georgia Aquarium. For $15 you can get an exclusive look backstage at some of the most popular exhibits!
We went on a Tuesday since my husband was off work, and it turned out to be the perfect day to go! It wasn’t overly crowded which is always nice.
The Behind the Seas tour begins on the second floor next to the 4-D Funbelievable Theater and will take you to multiple areas like the topside decks of Ocean Voyager and Tropical Diver.
The image above is the topside of the Tropical Diver. Those buckets dump 6,000 gallons of filtered water every 2 minutes to simulate waves crashing and help keep the tank clean! It was designed after a reef in Indonesia with a deep side and a shallow side for little guys like stingray pups. (more…)
