Join us in Atlanta, Georgia – October 19-20, 2024

Why The Georgia Aquarium?

The Georgia Aquarium is the only place in the world where you’re guaranteed to see whale sharks and manta rays!

The Ocean Voyager Exhibit is home to 6,000 fish. See unique animals from four different oceans, including sawfish, guitarfish, eagle rays, porcupine rays, lesser devil rays, wobbegongs, sandbar sharks, and zebra sharks….just to name a few.

Travel Plans

Join us for a unique and memorable dive at the Georgia Aquarium!

We’ll leave Jacksonville on Saturday, giving us plenty of time to make the five-hour drive to Atlanta. The weather in October makes it one of the most beautiful months in Georgia. Enjoy downtown, walk the beltline, or get a hamburger at The Varsity. You may even enjoy a few drinks as we do not dive till noon the following day.

For this trip we’ve reserved several rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn, just a short walk to the Georgia Aquarium. Our hotel is also within walking distance to Centennial Olympic Park, the World of Coca-Cola, and the College Football Hall of Fame.

Space is limited – book today to secure your spot! – SOLD OUT
