    Smaller aquarium than some in large cities but quality exhibits. Good variety and excellent signage to educate visitors.

    Frequent educational programs were included with admission. They were aimed for younger visitors to help them understand conservation.

    Occasionally non-marine animals like lemurs are on exhibit. Makes an appealing variety of species to please a crowd.

    Not as large as some aquariums but has lots of informative exhibits about the regional waters. Located on Charleston Harbor and the seasonal Water Taxi from Patriot's Point stops there.

    There's nothing like the Charleston Aquarium to delight young and old alike, especially on a rainy day.

    This is a wonderful place to go as a tourist and also a wonderful venue to hold events in such as weddings or corporate events (such as Galas). I'm a professional musician and I have played many wedding there with my business Charleston Flutist, LLC.

    Wasn't worth it for the price, now myrtle beach Ripley Aquarium gives 75% off for military and was so worth the 2 hour drive!!

    Fun to visit one time...would not go a 2nd time. Kind of expensive in my opinion $26 per person.

Description

The South Carolina Aquarium is located in Charleston and is an awesome location for a family outing. Get hands on interaction with sea creatures at the Touch Tank. See the very rare albino Alligator and get up close with sharks at the Great Ocean Tank. Visit the Sea Turtle hospital to see how the staff cares for injured or ill turtles. After seeing the sea creatures in real life, check out the 4-D movies and feel the wind gusts, splashes of water and movement under your seat. Plan your trip to include the dive shows, watching the animals get fed and all of the other shows.
