Great experience!

This was by far one of the best things to do in Myrtle Beach. It was very informational and lots of hands on experiences.

This place was great for my 2 & 4 yr old. They have mermaids which were amazing. The place is sort of small but we spent about 2 hrs in there then another 45mins getting our photos. Waiting for the photos was awful. I made the kids and my husband go to the car. However the photos were amazing and... More

It was very nice. I love the walk through they have it's very fun. It was a cute little date and then you have the board way at the beach and you can do a lot of things there

Visited plenty of aquarium, and for this one to be Ripley's I was expecting much more. The glass bottom boat was a joke. you spend $13.00 more to see the same shark as below . not worth it, save the money for a snack or something from the gift store.

We thought it was small compared to some other aquariums and the flow of traffic was not smooth. It was okay.

We thought that Ripley's was okay. It was a bit small and overpriced. The glass bottom boat ride is $12 extra. The mermaid show was good and the shark tunnel was cool- although the moving sidewalk broke during our stay. We did not think it was as good as the Ripleys in the smoky mountain, but it is a fun...

Went last night and it was $75 for two adults and two children. Felt it was really not exciting. They take a picture of you when you walk in (which they do in case you wish to buy the print out) and then do the same with a girl dresses as Ariel the mermaid, if you wish. There are cool... More
