H. L. Hunley Museum
On February 17th, 1864, the H. L. Hunley became the first successful combat submarine in world history with the sinking of the USS Housatonic. After completing her mission, she mysteriously vanished and remained lost at sea for over a century. For decades, adventurers searched for the legendary submarine. Over a century later, the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA), led by New York Times-bestselling author Clive Cussler, finally found the Hunley in 1995. Check it out at the Hunley Museum.
Fall is Charleston’s best-kept secret. With pleasant weather and light crowds, what could be better than to take advantage of the many opportunities the Preservation Society has arranged?

Fort Moultrie, one of the oldest still-standing forts along the Eastern Seaboard, is a "must see" destination for history buffs.

Deep Water is a name with many meanings, first and foremost you'll hear the term deep water in the Lowcountry as coveted access beyond the pluff mud of the marsh. We also, honestly, as owners of a winery feel a little bit overwhelmed so you could say we're in deep water. The wine itself is one of the only truly native grapes to the US, and we embrace it. Remaining true to our predecessors Southern roots, we grow muscadine grapes, a fruit native to the Southeastern United States. We produce authentic muscadine wine, five different labels from four varieties of grapes. Go to this link for more information.
It’s impossible to miss our two-story, 385,000-gallon Great Ocean Tank. You’ll practically rub noses with sharks and can wave a flipper hello to our 220-pound loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta. Divers interact with visitors during daily dive shows.
Located just inside the entrance, the 15,000-gallon Carolina Seas tank houses our collection of colorful fish found around reef habitats off the coast.
