Myrtle Beach is Ripley’s hub for scientific research. The Marine Science Research Center made waves in spring 2022 by producing the world’s first successful birth by artificial insemination of a sand tiger shark, advancing research and species survival. This pup marked a significant step for its species around the world. 

From sea turtles to sawfish, Ripley’s Aquarium is constantly on the defense for animals around the world… even the underdogs! On your tour, meet Cheddar, the orange lobster who was rescued from a Red Lobster restaurant in Hollywood, Florida. Employees at the restaurant immediately noticed Cheddar’s beautiful, bright orange color, and they went on a mission to rescue the unique crustacean. Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach answered the call and happily welcomed the extremely rare orange lobster — a one-in-30-million find — to the Marine Science Research Center.

Curious to see how the aquarium maintains such a bustling marine facility? Discover the wonders of Ripley’s Aquariums and come face-to-face with aquatic animals like never before on the Marine Science Research Center Tour. Your tour guide, knowledgeable on every nook and cranny of the Aquarium, will be there to answer questions throughout your visit — leaving no shell unturned!
