My husband and I went here during the Christmas season, and we were delighted to see all of the holiday trees displayed throughout the building. The aquarium displays are well done, and the signage is very informative. We rode the glass-bottomed boat which was actually quite a bit of fun. We liked the many interactive displays where you get to touch jellyfish, horseshoe crabs, etc. It made the experience even more fun. We will definitely go back again and again.

Ripley’s is a beautiful family friendly attraction! The aquarium is large and has a moving belt that takes you underneath the sea! A cafe is on site if you get hungry! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Plenty of photo opts!!

We love the aquarium. There is something new to see every time. If you get the chance to go while they still have the Pearl Harbor exhibit DO NOT MISS IT. The Pearl Harbor exhibit was so informative and moving.

The Aquarium is a most stop when we come to Myrtle Beach. We have been coming to MB since 2009 and every time we have the kids with us we make sure we stop in. It never gets old for the kids, even though they are teenagers now they still have a great time.
In my opinion it is a bit pricey, it would have cost us $120 for a family of four but we received a 50% discount for being Retired Military. Also if we would have purchased season tickets the price would have been 50% off.
In all it is a great place to visit and we always enjoy our time there.
