A trip to Myrtle Beach is not complete without a visit to one of Ripley’s main attractions: Ripley’s Aquarium.
Tristan is at an age where he wants to explore and learn about everything around him. He was so excited to visit Ripley’s Aquarium – especially because of their shark tanks!
There are two levels in the aquarium. The upper level has one of Tristan’s favorite exhibits called SLIME.
SLIME features, you guessed it – slimy sea creatures! The most fascinating one to me is the Green Moray eel.
They look like some kind of sea monster in a sci-fi movie!
After some sting ray, slime and other cool creature features (like mermaids!) we made our way under the sea.
Well, the Dangerous Reef exhibit!
Gliding along on a 340-foot glide path in an acrylic tunnel, we came face to face with sea life big and small – including sharks!
You are literally surrounded by fish in this tunnel. Sharks would drift above our heads while schools of fish zipped passed us on each side.
We loved reaching out when they swam over us as if we could almost touch them! It’s a really cool experience.
Did you get a chance to watch the full video of our visit? No problem! You can check it out on our YouTube channel or watch it right here on this blog post.
If you visit Myrtle Beach I recommend taking a look around Ripley’s Aquarium. You should definitely visit if you have kids or a lover of the sea.
