A must see when in myrtle beach. An aquarium like no other. As an adult had never been able to touch a shark or jelly fish and loved it.

Just awesome. Being able to actually walk under the glass enclosed fish tanks and be face to face with gorgeous sharks, is just so thrilling. Walking through the small exhibits of tiny sea horses, sea urchins, jellyfish and more. This place is fun for children...More

Yup, we had to move around crowds, but the sea life was amazing, and the views incredible. Opted for this on a whim during some rain and it was well worth the price (discounted at hotel). Warning, stay away from the hawkers near the entrance!!

I was very excited to come to this aquarium after all the reviews and hype around town. I was a little disappointed to find it EXTREMELY crowded (as in people were stepping on my feet and bumping into me throughout the entire trip). We visited...More

Very cool experience in the heart of Myrtle Beach. Try and make one of the "Rucus" shows. It's their "drum line". I would recommend to anyone

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!
