Connecting people with the waters and lands of the Port Royal Sound Area
No matter where you travel in Beaufort County and the surrounding area, you’re most likely going to cross the waters of the Port Royal Sound. These waters are some of the most pristine in the country and here at the Port Royal Sound Foundation we want to keep them that way.
We believe raising awareness and educating residents and visitors alike about the uniqueness of our special ecosystem is the first step. We opened the Maritime Center as a doorway to that journey. Please come in!
At the Maritime Center you can:
- Experience dynamic exhibits and the rich variety of life found in the Port Royal Sound Area – see what a 10 foot tiger shark looks like!
- Discover our amazing local marine life in a 3,000 gallon aquarium and the educational touch tanks.
- Enjoy the water by boat, kayak, canoe and more.
- Connect to the stories and rich history that make the Sound so unique.
