If your're trying to beat the heat, Myrtle Beach has a variety of watersports to choose from to cool you off. With so many different types of water attractions available, we take the confusion and hassle out of finding the best prices and companies in the area, as well as showing you exactly what the rentals rates are for each activity.
Below, you'll find a list of water sports that you should consider exploring on your vacation to the North Myrtle Beach or Myrtle Beach area.
Parasailing in Myrtle Beach,South Carolina is an absolute tourist favorite. Soaring high above the ocean with panaoromic coastal views can prove to be an adrenaline filled adventure. If you've never tried it before, it's something I'd highly recommend doing at least once. The best part about parasailing is most of the companies that offer this service are stationed directly on the oceanfront. Most sessions last approximately 15 minutes and prices can vary greatly from one company to another.
In my personal opinion, renting a boat while on vacation in North Myrtle Beach is the most under-utilized service available. Take a break from the crowds near the beach and take a cruise on the IntraCoastal Waterway with a pontoon or sport boat. Most companies that offer boat rentals will only allow half day or full day rentals. Also, boat selection will vary from company to company.
Looking for a quick thrill on the Atlantic Ocean? Going on a banana boat ride is a great experience for kids and adults of all ages! Just as it is with parasailing, banana boat ride providers can be found on the beachfront in front of a few local resorts along the Grand Strand. Most of them are similarly priced, so it makes the most sense to go ahead and rent through the company closest to your accommodations.
Have you ever thought of renting a kayak on vacation in Myrtle Beach? Probably not! Spending part of the day kayaking is nothing short of an amazing experience. One of the most under rated watersports, getting your paddle on in the ocean or the merky channels of the Cherry Grove salt marshes will definitely become a favorite. Depending on your skill level, the provider will make recommendations, but it is ultimately your decision where you decide to hit the water. Most places that rent kayaks in North Myrtle Beach offer full day rentals.
Didn't think you could surf on the East Coast? Think again! Although we aren't home to the biggest waves the Atlantic Ocean has to offer, our swells aren't too shabby if you know two crucial secrets to surfing success - where and when. Taking surf lessons from a certified and trusted local company can make the world of difference in the type of experience you have. Learning to surf in Myrtle Beach can end up being one of the best things you've decided to do this Summer. With warm oceans and sparse shark activity, getting your surf on along the Grand Strand will definitely add some dimension to your vacation routine.
One of the all-time favorites of Myrtle Beach watersports, deep sea fishing is a popular activity in South Carolina. If you've never been fishing in the Atlantic Ocean, then you haven't lived life! North Myrtle Beach, SC is home to some of the most experienced fisherman on the East Coast.
Ahh yes, where our website began its journey - with jet skiing in Myrtle Beach. From a water sports perspective, riding a jet ski is a chart-topping must do activity on vacation in the Carolinas. During the Summer months, the coastal South Carolina region can be extreme hot and humid, especially if you're spending your day at the beach. Nothing beats starting your day out by the beach, soaking some sun - and then hopping on a waverunner across the Atlantic Ocean or IntraCoastal Waterway. If you've never experienced the thrill of a jet ski before, it's definitely worth every dollar.
