I've never done that, but it sounds like a blast. If you go, please post a report and let us know how it was.

Atlanta Aquarium is expensive - $275 for 30 mins or thereabouts.

We get them offshore here from time to time.

To each his own, certainly. And if others get a thrill from diving at an aquarium, then good! It beats watchingaquatic creatureson T.V.

However, experiences in the wild have a special significance for me.

If I want to get out and commune with nature, I'll head for the woods or open water, not to the petting zoo, where my experience has been prepared for me.

But that's just me.
