Feed The South Carolina Aquarium RAYndeers This Holiday Season

Emma Colosia Emma Colosia


It’s the last week before Christmas, and we’re ready for some holiday fun at Charleston’s most iconic places. The South Carolina Aquarium is hosting an incredible event where you and your children will be able to celebrate Christmas with Santa’s aquatic helpers, the RAYndeers. 

Animals at the Aquarium are also part of the Christmas celebrations, which is why on top of your general admission, you can buy a feeding ticket that will let you have a one on one moment with the stingrays. 

Feed the cow nose rays by hand and give them a tasty fishy snack daily from 10:15 am through 4:00 pm, while supplies last. 

Each ray feeding voucher is $5, and you can ask for it at the admission gate or information desk during your next visit. 

You can buy your general admission ticket here.
