2015 Trip Preview: Along the way the band will visit… the Georgia Aquarium.
The Georgia Aquarium is home to FOUR WHALE SHARKS! The Georgia Aquarium is also home to four manta rays. It recently added a fourth manta ray to the Ocean Voyager exhibit. Their newest ray is the first male added to the exhibit, and will join three female manta rays, Billi, Nandi and Tallulah, as well as thousands of other fish in the 6.3 million gallon exhibit, the most magical aquarium habitat in the world.
