We took our grandchildren and they enjoyed it, I thought it was small for the pricey entry fee. Once was enough and won't need to return.

Good time for the whole family. We range in age from 1 to 62. A little pricey for size, which is why only giving it 4 stars.

Love this aquarium. It is down in the busy area of the Grand Strand with other restaurants and attractions. You can buy combo tickets for the Ripley museum and aquarium. Favorite feature to view the fish is the fantastic moving walkway where you can watch the sharks and other fish swim overhead while you glide through the glass tunnel. I... More

We came here last year during our first trip to Myrtle beach with our at the time one year old.

Such a great place to visit. One of the best shark tanks I've seen. Beware of school groups, though.

We loved the RIPLEY's aquarium. The size and compactness made it easy for us elderly travels to manage. The displays and variety of animals were great!

We were excited to take time out to travel to myrtle beach to take the grands to some of myrtle beach's attractions, and the one that they wanted to visit was the aquarium. The children was in awe when they saw the outside of the place, to see their exspression when they entered inside was priceless. The two year old... More
