Your Membership Means More

Sea the difference your membership makes! A membership is more than a ticket into the Aquarium. Your dues help provide the best care to our animals as well as sustain our work to connect people to water, wildlife and wild places. Members enjoy unlimited visits plus exclusive benefits and invitations to exciting programs and events year-round! Plus, membership pays for itself in just two visits!

Member Portal

To provide the most enjoyable experience for all visitors and members, South Carolina Aquarium offers timed ticketing for both general admission and member reservations. Weekends and holidays are typically our busiest days, and some entry times may sell out.

Have a question? We’re happy to help! Give us a call at (843) 577-FISH (3474) or email membership@scaquarium.org.
