It was the largest aquarium in the world from its opening in 2005 until 2012, when it became the third largest aquarium in the world after the Marine Life Park in Singapore and the Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in China.

The Georgia Aquarium remains the largest aquarium in the United States and the Western Hemisphere.

The Aquarium's notable specimens include whale sharks, beluga whales, California sea lions, bottlenose dolphins and manta rays.

One the aquarium's most famous residents are the Beluga Whales. The Aquarium has been home to as many as five 11-foot (3 m) Beluga Whales at one time.

Dolphin Show

The dolphin show is fun for all ages and admission is included with a general admission ticket. The show time varies each day, though it is typically held around 11:30 am, 3pm and 5pm.

The show is actually a musical with a little story. The dolphins are always spectacular. High-flying flips, fun tricks, and kindly human trainers put on an impressive water ballet lasting around 30 minutes.  The show's theme changes from time to time.
