This aquarium is expensive, too crowded and small. Would not recommend coming here if you actually want to have a pleasant experience.

I thought the Aquarium was great. We got a local discount and that made it even better. The sharks, Stingrays and the rest of the feature fish were interesting. Love it.

It was really fun and there were many different things to do. I was in awe of the shark tunnel but when it was over, I almost felt like "that's it?!?" It's a big oval aquarium that is also a tunnel (think the shape of an umbrella. There is a large center then then tunnel is formed like being under... More

We were also able to visit the Ripley's Aquarium. The exhibits that they had in the aquarium were real interesting. One was where some small fish could suck dead skin from your hand. We really enjoyed it.

We love to visit aquariums and Ripley's is one of the best we have ever visited. It was pretty crowded, but if you were patient you could see everything. The kids (we have teens) favorite attraction was the tank you stick your hands in and the little fish come and nibble on your skin - this only tickles and does... More

I could have done without this visit. I've been to other aquariums and this was not all that great for $65 for a family of 3. I couldn't believe it was limited to basically what you see when you walk in. The concessions area was fairly priced. The shark walk was cool and so was the mermaid show but I... More

This is a great aquarium if your in the myrtle Beach area. Its very affordable and you can definitely spend some hours just gazing at the beauty of these creatures. Very fun experience and well worth the money. We were a couple in our thirties, but if you have kids, this is a must!
