Maritime Center

Your guests may wander through our beautiful exhibits focusing on the ecological, historical and artistic features of the Port Royal Sound Area, highlighted by a 3,000-gallon aquarium and life-sized ceiling diorama. A 1950s shucking table, used when the building was a canning factory, is the perfect way to serve up an oyster roast, Lowcountry boil or simple buffet. The Maritime Center is available for evening rentals beginning at 5:30 p.m. Daytime rentals are available on Mondays only.

Outdoor Areas

The site includes green space, two docks and an entryway patio that can be used for your event. Additionally, there is a 50′ x 105′ pad (approximately 5,000 sq. ft) that can be tented for outdoor events.
