As summer vacation is winding down there’s still plenty of time to take in all the fun things there are to do in the nearby area. One of the most memorable times your children and you can have is located not far from your these North Myrtle Beach Resorts. A visit to Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach allows you to swim alongside some of nature’s most exotic undersea fauna. Your children will feel like the bravest explorers in the seas and this could very well be the highpoint of their summer vacation. You can be sure they’ll be talking about it for years to come.
Stingray aficionados and brave young marine explorers alike have discovered this beach treasure at Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. At Ripley’s, a beautiful stingray environment hosts southern rays, spotted eagle rays, and guitarfish in a child-friendly setup that lets all comers swim with the rays. Let’s face it, as nice as our North Myrtle Beach Resorts are your children are going to want to get out and go exploring every day they’re here.
Stingrays, despite the dangerous sounding name, are generally docile and prefer to flee from a disturbance rather than attack it making them excellent first companions for young swimmers. Even better, because rays in the wild have a startling ability to hide themselves under sand and silt, environments like this offer a rare opportunity to watch these unique creatures undulate through the waters.
With the well-trained and observant guides on duty, families are kept safe from the animals and vice versa. All of these rules are covered and enforced by the staff that is intimately familiar with the animals and their tendencies.
So if you haven’t made your reservations yet be sure to check out our full listing of North Myrtle Beach Resorts or even if you have, there’s always next year!
