Fun, wonder and education come together at the South Carolina Aquarium. See a rare albino American alligator, get hands-on at the Touch Tank, marvel at the sharks in the Great Ocean Tank, come face-to-face with rays in the Shallows, or see our brand...more

We arrived at 3pm (2 hours before closing) on a Friday afternoon and felt like we had the place to ourselves! This was feeding time so all of the sea life was active and we were able to get up close to all marine life...More
