When the South Carolina Aquarium closes for the day, a unique event site opens. As your guests arrive on our Riverside Terrace, they will experience Charleston from an entirely different perspective. With dolphins playing and great ships passing, guests will know this is a truly special event. The Great Hall is a soaring light-filled space anchored by a two-story stained glass window. The Carolina Seas Exhibit introduces them to our live exhibits and a 150-foot long glass wall looks toward Fort Sumter and the Battery. Gorgeous views abound at the South Carolina Aquarium - both inside and out. The exhibit areas take a guest "from the mountains to the sea" across our state and offer unique venues for groups of 15 to 1,500 people. Whether you favor an intimate dinner in front of our Deep Ocean Tank or a strolling reception throughout the building, we will help you create a truly memorable evening.
