What is there to do?

It's time to explore the magical underwater world we have on our planet at Ripley's Aquarium!

Here, you get to enjoy a whopping 87,000 square-foot aquarium experience, located at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

In fact, the aquarium is actually the state's most visited attraction, where guests are entertained by some of the world's most beautiful, fascinating and dangerous aquatic life. And you can be one of those guests!

There are a whole heap of experiences that the whole family can enjoy when visiting this fun filled attraction. You can surround yourself on all sides by menacing and passive sharks, as they travel through the 750,000 gallon Dangerous Reef. This also includes a 330ft moving glidepath too!

Don't miss Ray Bay either, where you can see a variety of rays from multiple viewing levels, and you can even touch some of them too!  Atlantic rays, Southern rays, Cow-Nose rays, Spotted Eagle rays and Bonnet-Head sharks are all ready to be part of your animal encounters.

Rainbow Rock offers a stunning view of thousands of brilliantly colored Pacific fishes from Hawaii, Australia and the Indian Ocean through an acrylic window the size of two movie screens. You might just feel like YOU are underwater yourself!

But the great thing is, at Ripley's Aquarium, you can explore the oceans and not have to get wet....are you ready to meet the creatures of the deep?
