Home to Georgia’s first saltwater aquarium, it features 16 exhibit tanks that showcase a variety of Georgia’s marine life. Most species are caught by aquarium staff right off the coast.

In addition to the aquarium, the facility hosts educational exhibits, an auditorium, two teaching laboratories, an art lab and a computer lab. There is also a dormitory and dining room on site to house and feed out-of-town groups.up close and personal with some of Georgia’s marine invertebrates such as snails and crabs.
