Attraction details
Owner description: One of the anchor's of the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, the Gay Dolphin has delighted generations of customers since 1946. The most unique gift shop on the Grand Strand, it has twenty-six thousand square feet of fun spread over seven levels. Located directly on the new Myrtle Beach Boardwalk between Mr. Joe White Avenue and 9th Avenue North, just south of Plyler Park. The Gay Dolphin is now wheelchair accessible! An elevator lift was installed in March/April of 2015, which allows wheelchair access to 85% - 90% of the store.

the gift shop has a funky smell,and too many levels of close packed together items.it gets confusing because,you are to pay at the register of each floor,so you cant forget where you picked up an item,before moving to the next section. a lot of similar items,that can be found in the other cheesy touristy stores around town.

This is a classic chotski store on the beach. There is everything you can ever imagine you never knew you needed. They have a whole wall of named license plates. If you can't find your name or your kids name, then it doesn't exist.
This store is so big you can get lost in all the different floors and little coves throughtout the building.

We have two pre teens so arcades are something that we all enjoy doing together. My son especially loves arcades and the gay dolphin arcade did not disappoint him. He had such a good time and the staff was every nice. The arcade had chairs to sit down and watch the children play also. It was very cool and not hot in there at all. The prizes were alot better than most arcades as well.
