Georgia Aquarium Offers Intimate Encounter With Beluga Whales

Posted: Updated:

They're among the most beloved animals in the ocean. So what's better than watching the beautiful beluga whales gracefully swim at Georgia Aquarium? Getting in the water with them, of course!

The Beluga & Friends Interactive Program is a unique opportunity to see the whales without looking through glass. The program allows visitors to put on wetsuits and, sometimes, slide into the water, interacting with animals and learning from the Aquarium's trainers. There's plenty of "beluga knowledge" to acquire -- for example, did you know the maximum reported adult weight is 3600 pounds?!? There's also a chance to meet some of the other animals in the Georgia-Pacific Cold Water Quest gallery during the Interactive Program.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken got the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out the program -- and he was squealing louder than the animals! Click the videos above to check it out!!
