Oceans of Possibilities

by  South Carolina Aquarium

Program image

Join us as we embark on a mission to explore the deep ocean! To get there, we must first survive the intertidal zone, rocky reefs, open ocean and finally, the dark sea floor. Lacking some necessary expedition equipment, we have to learn how to best adapt to these environments by asking advice from the animals we meet along the way.

found in South Carolina: the Mountains, the Piedmont, the Coastal Plain, the
Coast, and the Ocean. The Aquarium’s mission is to inspire conservation of the
natural world by exhibiting and caring for animals, by excelling in education
and research, and by providing an exceptional visitor experience. The South
Carolina Aquarium is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization relying on the
support of paying guests, members, foundations and the generosity of donors.
The Aquarium’s 93,000-square-foot building includes nine galleries featuring
more than 5,000 amazing aquatic animals, from river otters and sharks to
loggerhead turtles and American alligators, within approximately 50 exhibits
