The aquarium exhibits are amazing but the tickets are expensive and you see everything in under an hour. For that price, the other exhibits should be included and not additional charges.

My family really enjoyed this aquarium. They had plenty of varieties of fish in exhibits that were pleasing to look at. The shark tunnel had a slow moving walkway which kept everyone moving but you could still take pictures and see everything, It isn't huge so you won't need all day to visit.

We love the aquarium at Myrtle beach!! Our favorite part is touching the stingrays. The shark tunnel leaves me awestruck every time. I could just watch them all day. I love how they have special little features and change it up every so often. I believe they may have more sharks than any of the other aquariums I've been to.

Good aquarium but I wasn't blown away. There were some interesting specimens. The aquarium was crowded with lots of young children & we had difficulty moving around at times.
