Cool experience, but a little pricey considering the popularity of large aquariums these days. I’d say this is my least favorite aquarium of the 6 or 7 I’ve visited.

We love looking at all the fish and sharks. Our kids love going. They find something new every year when we go I think this is a perfect place to take your family and spend some time together. Must go.

I was expecting more because we have experienced the aquarium in Gatlinburg and in Baltimore; these aquariums were much bigger and had many more attractions. With that being said, I still enjoyed the Myrtle Beach aquarium, as did my two year old. But, it still...More

The shark tunnel was the best part of the aquarium, and even that had what looked like fake corral as well as too many fake artifacts blocking the view. Some areas of the shark tunnel were so poorly light that you couldn't see anything. There...More

Very cool place...my children enjoyed just about everything. They fed the stingrays and loved it. The only downside is the way out... they make you exit through the Gift shop... very annoyed by that!!!

This aquarium is one of our favorites. The mermaid show was really neat and the kids were amazed and are still talking about it.

Loved the Pearl Harbor exhibit. It was fun for the kids and informational for the adults. Although crowded, we still had a good time.

We paid extra for the glass bottom boat just to realize it was over tanks we had already seen. We were told we could easily spend 3 hours in there when purchasing tickets but were done in 2

Great day to spend out of the hot midday sun. Mermaid show is fun. Wish they would make it bigger. The walk through tank has a walking conveyor belt to stand on or you can walk along side. You get to see the large fish...More

The tickets can be used anyday from day of purchase. Buy them on line. You don’t want to be stuck in long lines trying to buy tickets.
