Like a favorite
fishing spot, people return to the Tennessee Aquarium to see amazing
animals that swim, fly and crawl in natural habitats. This remarkable
journey from the mountains to the sea takes visitors through three
living forests under glass and puts them eye to eye with 10-foot
sharks, giant spider crabs, river otters and alligators.
newest addition, Ocean Journey, takes guests into the open ocean
where fierce sharks, stealthy stingrays and colorful reef fish
glide through amazing coral formations. Visitors also experience
a shark and ray touch pool and hundreds of free-flying butterflies.
The weird and wonderful animals in Ocean Journey’s “Boneless
Beauties” gallery include graceful jellyfish, a giant octopus
and captivating cuttlefish. The original River Journey building
takes guests on a freshwater adventure, with exhibits that showcase
the Appalachian Cove Forest, a steamy Delta swamp and rivers of
Aquarium walls, downtown Chattanooga offers a revitalized riverfront
with miles of parks and public art, all surrounded by the natural
beauty of the mountains.
