We love visiting Ripley's Aquarium. It's always a great time and so neat to see everything up close. It was very crowded this particular trip but still very worth it.

My husband and I had a lot of fun! Took us about an hour to do the whole thing. The fish looked well taken care of and all the employees seemed happy.

We met this young man at the aquarium who took our picture (great pictures!!) and he seemed to know everything there was to know when we had any questions, it was the most amazing experience! His name was Brandon Nobles, he should be teaching about the fish! I was so impressed because we went to another aquarium a month before... More

We visited this after purchasing tickets on groupon. There are a lot of $2 discount coupons in those little books all over the place so we didn't save a lot of money. It was $11 each for us to go from groupon, but it would have been $12 with the coupon. Lots of fun displays to look at. Not a... More

We went here on a rainy day during our vacation in Myrtle Beach. It was very neat. They have one of the best shark tunnels we have seen, and they have several kinds of jellyfish. We think it was worth the money

It was raining, so we decided to visit Ripleys Aquarium. I booked online (a HUGE MISTAKE), although if you book on site and use the VMB card there is a discount...I would have saved about $10. The glass bottom boat add on is a joke, it's a floating raft in a pool...skip it. Entertaining....
