The Chattanooga skyline features six magnificent peaks that top the Tennessee Aquarium’s River Journey and Ocean Journey buildings. River Journey is the original Aquarium building and features stunning freshwater creatures and habitats from around the world. Visitors can explore two living forests under glass and get face to face with giant catfish, prehistoric sturgeon and American alligators.
Ocean Journey takes visitors beneath the waves where 10-foot sharks, fierce barracuda and graceful stingrays glide through amazing coral formations. Other galleries showcase cuttlefish, squid, crabs and jellyfish. An indoor rainforest showcases the fluttering jewels of nature – butterflies.
