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.

Ripley's Aquarium Reviews & Ratings

  • Tons of fun for whole family. Interesting dove show. All staff members very friendly and knowledgeable. Love all the sharks and fish. Seen Gabby the sea turtle. So many cool things. The aquarium is a classic for the whole family. From babies to teens to adults.

  • Very fun. Great for adults and kids. Shows and interactions with the sea life..little food stands and a place for hot dogs pretzels sodas. Gift shop very nice. Not to overly priced. Overall great experience. Highly recommend if you love sealife and fish.

  • This was one of the coolest aquariums I had ever been to! The tunnel with the conveyor belt was crazy, being able to have sharks and fish swimming all around you was so awesome. The pure variety in attractions was also fun. You could pet horseshoe crabs and have shrimp crawl on your hand and you could even pet a sting ray. Total ya great place for a family to check out.

  • Great location to take kids and enjoy an aquarium. There are several themes and the shark tank is very interesting. There is a moving conveyor to move you through the tanks. The sharks are also visible overhead for s really unique experience. It also possible to view the shark tank from the glass bottomed boat for an additional charge. There are shows with mermaids on the stingrays tank. Great gift shop and a concession area. It's a little pricey but the kids will absolutely love it. The ticket is good for all day. There is usually a discount coupon available in one of the coupon books from the area that will save around $3. I would definitely recommend this place. There are other great attraction and shopping directly in the area.

  • ITS OKAY. it's a tourist trap. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it. They have jelly fish, horseshoe crab, shrimp, and stingray touching. How many times do you get to do that? It's so expensive though. Just go through the attractions and don't do the things on the side, it's not worth it. Very cool fish inside and staff is awesome. It was clean yet crowded. However, I went when it was half off the aquarium. So I expected it to be crowded. Lots of little kids that needed to be on a leash or left at home. I almost ran a group of toddlers over because they just walk all over the place. However, it was still an very enjoyable way to spend the day.
