The Tennessee Aquarium, a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution, inspires wonder, appreciation and protection of water and all life that it sustains. The Aquarium serves as a vital link connecting people to freshwater and the ocean beyond. Within the Aquarium's two buildings, visitors follow the path of a raindrop from the streams of an Appalachian Cove Forest to the depths of the Gulf of Mexico and beyond. Along the way, guests meet more than 10,000 animals in a richly diverse living collection.
The Aquarium also operates the IMAX 3D Theater and the River Gorge Explorer. Guests can plunge into a 3D underwater adventure or take a virtual trip to exotic locations at Chattanooga's premiere movie theater. Located at the Chattanooga Pier, the River Gorge Explorer is the United State's only high-speed vessel operating on an inland waterway. An Aquarium naturalist leads each cruise, pointing out wildlife and historic points of interest while traveling to and from a protected habitat within "Tennessee's Grand Canyon."
