Fodor's Expert Review South Carolina Aquarium
Get up close and personal with more than 5,000 creatures at this waterfront attraction, where exhibits invite you to journey through distinctive habitats. Step into the Mountain Forest and find water splashing over a rocky gorge as river otters play. Enter the open-air Saltmarsh Aviary to feed stingrays and view herons, diamondback terrapins, and puffer fish; gaze in awe at the two-story, 385,000-gallon Great Ocean Tank, home to sharks, jellyfish, and a loggerhead sea turtle. Kids love the Touch Tank, and the newly expanded Sea Turtle Recovery exhibit makes the celebrated sea turtle rehabilitation hospital accessible to all visitors.
