Anything attached with the tag ‘Ripley’s’ is sure to catch our attention and make us want to check it. And this aquarium on Myrtle Beach is one of the highest visited attractions in South Carolina. Located along the promenade, the Ripley’s Aquarium is one of the best maintained state-of-the-art facilities you will come across. View the creatures of the sea up-close and personal without having to even get wet. The Dangerous Reef is a 750,000 gallon tank that has been structured like a tunnel to give you the illusion of walking through the water with the marine animals. Kids in particular love the Sea-For-Yourself and Pirates: Fact and Folklore exhibits which give them a chance to explore and learn something new.

This place was pretty cool to see. The whole family enjoyed themselves. From the small sea horses to the big sharks, it is really cool to see. My favorite part is being able to walk through the tunnel and see everything swimming around and above you in the water. I also liked being able to pet the sting rays and the horseshoe crabs. Whether you are by yourself or as a group it is very entertaining.
Love it! I went twice because they were going to closed it for a private party or something like so I had to go next and finish it. But it was nice. The ray pool was cool. First time I ever did that. And with the horseshoe fish. It was cool but I bet after a while is gonna get boring they should change somethings. Have extracurricular shows or maybe seasoned decor or activities.
For the price, not family friendly. Great place, but Baltimore aquarium far better and much better value. $110 admission for a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 kids. Then additional $13 EACH for a boat ride in the shark tank? Nah. One trip there was plenty.
Very cool aquarium and fun to visit, but a little overpriced. When you're done viewing everything, you kinda feel like there should be more for the price. But you also have to consider how much it costs to build and maintain a place like that. They offer deals with the other Ripley's attractions on the boardwalk. If you visit Myrtle Beach often, they have a year season pass which offers the best deal. Much nicer to be able to visit as often as you want without the steep price.
Family friendly, lots of touch tanks, kids loved it. Actual aquarium area was smaller than expected but still enjoyable. The mermaid show is fun to watch but quite crowded.
