Maritime Center CLOSED

Maritime Center CLOSED

Due to a privately scheduled event, the Maritime Center is closed.
We’re growing!
During construction and ongoing renovations, the Maritime Center will need to be utilized for programs and events and therefore closed to the public a few times over the next month. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time, and we can’t wait to share our newest projects with you.
Please be sure to check our website or Facebook page for updates/closures.

At A Glance


From creature feedings to nature hikes, we’ve got exciting events for the whole family to enjoy.


We are centrally located in Beaufort County, where S.C. 170 crosses the Chechessee River. Just take the right exit from either direction at the bridge.

Field Trips

Fun for all ages, field trips enhance students’ classroom curriculum and gives them a unique understanding of our coastal environment.


Truly the heart of our Foundation, volunteering is the perfect way to learn more about what makes the Sound so important to us.

Ways to Give

Help us make a more profound impact for generations to come, not only for the Sound but for our community too!
