Grandkids enjoyed all the different exhibits. Great place to spend time with the family and get out of the heat. Got a great deal using the Carolina Deal for NC and SC residents

I'm 37 and I think I was more excited than the kids. Touching sharks and seeing them swim right above you was so cool

Never disappoints. The kids love the fish and sharks! A little small but a nice reprieve from the heat. Go on the evening and walk around broadway at the beach! Awesome shops!

I'm a teacher in Myrtle Beach. The last time I went I got in free and my guest was 1/2 price. At regular price it's worth the money but a discount is greatly appreciated!
