EcoBoat Tour
Oct 28 @ 11:00 am – 12:45 pm

Spend time aboard Spartina with Captain Amber for a scientific expedition on the beautiful Chechessee River. With little development on its banks, the Chechessee offers a largely untouched landscape with plentiful wildlife. Seasonal crabs, shrimp, and fish will make a temporary appearance on board in a touch tank.

Captain Amber grew up on these waters and has a passion for the bounty of the Lowcountry. Her graduate degree in Marine Biology allows her to explain the intricacies of the saltmarsh, setting Spartina apart from sightseeing eco-tours.

While here, plan some time to walk around the Maritime Center where you can experience dynamic exhibits, discover native sea animals, explore local history and connect with stories of the Port Royal Sound. All at no extra cost!

Maritime Center Birthday Celebration
Nov 11 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

The Maritime Center opened three years ago and we’re celebrating with a day full of FREE fun activities and special guests.  Over 20 vendors including art, activities, live animals, demonstrations, boating and more!! Food will be available for purchase.

Last year, participants enjoyed listening to some of the biggest (true) FISH STORIES by Captain Chip Michalove.
They experienced the excitement of FEEDING TIME for the fish and animals in our live exhibits and discovered how to CAST A NET with demonstrations on our education dock.  A truly spectacular treat was seeing the live owls and bats during the CREATURES OF THE NIGHT program.

Check back to see what will be offered in 2017!
