Wish they had a snack bar... My daughter's sugar was low while we were there and I had to give her candy to get it up from the gift shop. There is a restaurant but not a quick snack bar. The mermaid was very nice...More

I almost didn't visit the aquarium due to reading several negative reviews, but I am so glad I decided to gather my own opinion. I would have given this 5 stars but the crowdedness was a little rough and I can't imagine how hard it...More

I would say early on if you don't want crowds. People swim and do the beach during the day, and go out at night. It's at broadway at the beach so it going to be crowded pretty much no matter what.

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!
