Bring your family to the University of Georgia Aquarium to see what lives in Georgia's coastal waters!

The UGA Aquarium is a unique tourist destination and educational experience in the Savannah area. Explore exhibits displaying marine animals typical of the habitats found along the Georgia coast. Sixteen exhibit tanks house live animals that represent numerous species of fish, turtles and invertebrates.

Don't miss the touch tank in the upper museum area! This area features a variety of marine invertebrates. Display cases on the aquarium's upper level house fossils of sharks, giant armadillos, whales, mastodons and wooly mammoths dredged from the Skidaway River. Native American artifacts dating back to the "Guale" era of Georgia's prehistory are also on exhibit.

The aquarium and museum exhibit halls were completely renovated in the fall of 2007 with support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminstration's Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary Program and the UGA Marine Extension Service (MAREX).

The Marine Education Center and Aquarium is wheelchair accessible. MAREX also offers the Jay Wolf Nature Trail, Skidaway Interpretive Cabin, Learning Garden, and ADA approved boardwalk for more adventurous visitors
