Wild Dunes Resort Partners with South Carolina Aquarium

Leading the way to connect people with water, wildlife, and wild places.

Wild Dunes, Charleston’s Island Resort has had the pleasure of partnering with the South Carolina Aquarium to provide our guests with the opportunity to experience and learn all about water, wildlife, and wild places.

One of the SC Aquarium’s leading initiatives is their Sea Turtle Care Center - aimed to rescue, rehabilitate, and release sick and injured sea turtles. The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources finds and rescues the animals and brings them to the Aquarium for treatment. The sea turtles arrive most commonly suffering from debilitated turtle syndrome, shock from being exposed to cold temperatures, or injury from a boat strike or shark bite. Patients are given IV fluids, antibiotics, vitamins, and other medications. Based on the sea turtle’s condition, a variety of procedures may be performed, such as x-rays or ultrasounds. Rehabilitated sea turtles are released home in hopes that they will become reproductive members of the diminishing sea turtle population.

We are making strides in our exciting partnership by going strawless for sea life (paper straws available upon request); participating in clean beach sweeps in front of the Resort on Isle of Palms; taking part in the Aquarium’s fun events like beach runs; behind the scenes tours; sea life safe happy hours and more.

Take advantage of this great partnership and book our SC Aquarium Family Sea Turtle Package. Guests will have the opportunity to experience an unforgettable seaside beach vacation with a two night stay at Wild Dunes Resort while learning about some of the resort’s ocean neighbors during a visit to the SC Aquarium in downtown Charleston. The package includes accommodations for two nights, two Tipsy Turtle drink vouchers, four Aquarium tickets (two adults/two kids), $50 Uber gift card for Aquarium transportation, and a sea turtle welcome amenity. Book now with rates from $249/night!
