Along with a list of daily programs, the South Carolina Aquarium offers add-on experiences to make your visit even more memorable.
Feed the Fish
Have you ever wanted to feed the animals in the tallest tank in North America? Now, you can! An educational interpreter will lead you to the top of the Great Ocean Tank and explain how our animal care team feeds the different species in the tank. Then, you will have the opportunity to feed the fishes yourself! Children must be at least 8 years old and children under 13 must accompanied by an adult. No strollers allowed. Guests with food related allergies should be aware that our animals are offered shellfish and crustaceans. Gloves are provided.
Daily at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $15, and $14 for Aquarium members. Only 10 spots available per day. To purchase tickets, contact Customer Service at (843) 577-FISH (3474).
Feed the Rays
Not only can you touch the rays in The Shallows, but you can feed them, too! Feed by hand the cownose rays and give them a fishy treat daily at 9:30 am through noon each day, while supplies last.
Purchase a stingray feeding voucher for $5 ($4 for Aquarium members) at the admission gate or information desk during your next visit.
