Guests can visit varied ecosystems and historic sites via boat or overland aboard Springfield tidal creek excursions and Trekker back-roads excursions.

Ripley’s Aquarium

Sharks, jellyfish, stingrays and exotic fish are just a few of the creatures you’ll encounter at Ripley’s Aquarium. In March 2007, Ripley’s unveiled its newest exhibit, “Pirates: Predators of the Sea!,” featuring 2,400 square feet of displays, videos, interactive activities, and more that bring to life the tales of the terror and treasure. Other Ripley’s attractions on the Grand Strand include Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, Ripley’s Moving Theater and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum.
