Myrtle Beach Attractions

Myrtle Beach offers plenty of fun attractions besides the beautiful beaches. In fact, you might have a hard time tearing yourself away from all the fun zip lines, go-karts, and amusement parks in town. Ripley’s Aquarium is the biggest attraction in Myrtle Beach and draws visitors from miles away to explore the world-class aquarium. There are plenty of other Ripley’s attractions to choose from, as well. Another favorite is the Family Kingdom Amusement Park & Water Park. Have fun exploring all the great attractions in Myrtle Beach.

Aquariums & Sea Life Shows

Ripley's Aquarium in Myrtle Beach SC

Ripley’s® Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is located in Broadway-at-the-Beach, an entertainment and dining complex that features restaurants, rides, shops and the 85,000 square foot Ripley’s Aquarium.

Ripley's Aquarium Myrtle Beach is literally teeming with life - our 10,000 exotic sea creatures comprise more than 350 individual species.

Exhibits at Ripley's Aquarium Include:

  • Rio Amazon

  • Dangerous Reef

  • Living Gallery

  • Rainbow Rock

  • Systems Control

  • Discovery Center

  • Ray Bay

  • Friendship Flats



Ripley’s Aquarium has recently opened “SWARM™,” a brand-new, hands-on, highly interactive exhibit. Featured displays include a schooling fish exhibit where you can crawl underneath and pop up in the middle and an interactive “doctor fish” exhibit where you can immerse your hands only to be swarmed by hundreds of fish that cling and feed on your loose skin. You will also see Halloween crabs, American eels, Blubber jellyfish and much more!

In the SWARM™ exhibit, you can discover and unlock the mysteries of how and why thousands of animals dynamically coordinate their actions into a single, overwhelming force to create “super-organisms.” Many swarms may appear to be remarkably similar, but a closer look will reveal that they are governed by drastically different motives and mechanisms.

For a limited time only, Ripley's Aquarium showcases the exciting world of swarms, and as Aquarium visitors will learn, humans are not the only creatures that swarm together!
