Passport to Fun|SC Aquarium

I can’t remember a time when I’ve published two blog posts in the same day. Actually, I’m pretty sure this is a first. This couldn’t wait…

IMG_5495 From now until April 21, the South Carolina Aquarium is celebrating spring break with Passport to Fun. Our guys couldn’t wait to pick up their passports!

DSC04365We are definitely hooked on the South Carolina Aquarium.

DSC04355South Carolina Aquarium takes “hands on” to a whole new level.  Lydia couldn’t get enough of the stingrays.

DSC04382I love how the employees stroll through carrying animals for kids to pet (please note I said kids, not adults). If dirty hands are more frightening to you than actually touching the reptile, have no fear, hand sanitizer is near!

DSC04373Special programs were planned throughout the day.  Preston and Lydia especially enjoyed the Dive Show.  High five to the diver!

DSC04375A fascinating part of the Aquarium is the Sea Turtle Recovery Hospital. Injured and ill turtles are rescued and nursed back to health. Beach goers can do their part to protect our turtles by removing all signs of their stay (sandcastles can even pose a threat to turtles by blocking their view and confusing them). Everyone is encouraged to “Leave No Trace” after spending a day on shore.

The Loggerhead Turtle is the State Reptile of SC.

DSC04383We found lots of ways to learn about our state and the animals that live here.

DSC04402Sweet success! You don’t have to travel the world to get stamps in your passport. The South Carolina Aquarium invites you to come share in the fun before spring break is over!

Be sure to check their website for additional information and hours of operation.

*Thank you to the SC Aquarium for partnering with us on this post*
