Great for rainy day or hottest part of the day. Will take several hours of family fun. Very friendly!

I will start off by saying the Gatlinburg Ripley's is better. Only reason for a 4 rating. Still a very cool visit. The shark tunnel was really neat. Our kids had a great time. They also had a mermaid show that my daughter loved. Worth...More

Visited the aquarium with our large group. Everyone enjoyed the hands on exhibits. The mermaid show was really fun. Would recommend this if in the myrtle beach area.

A good time. Shark tunnel was worth the admission. Not easy to touch the rays etc. Didn't do the glass bottom boat and I don't think it's necessary. You get great looks from the tunnel.

We just loved this place. What a bargain for the money. We spent hours here to see everything. It is clean, well organized, and easy to navigate. A definite must see if they're coming to Myrtle Beach. You can easily find coupons or package deals...More

My 9 year old and 7 year old loved it. They got to pet sharks, rays, and crabs. it's an easy walk through and lasts about an hour.

This place is too overpriced and too overcrowded. For the amount you pay, there is just not that much to see. The crowds were terrible. We didn't stay in for more than 45 minutes and much of that was waiting in line.

While on vacation with all four of our kids, 2 sets of grandparents, and various other family members, my sweet husband set-up a date night for us. The two of us went to Ripley's Aquarium. This is a smaller aquarium but full of engaging creatures....More

Smaller aquarium, all indoors. The shark tunnel is amazing, we spent alot of time there. Also enjoyed the mermaid show.

Many activities for kids and very interactive. Great underwater tunnel. The kids love it. If your kids like fish and sharks...this is the place for you.

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!
