Jet Ski

Jet skiing is one of the most thrilling and satisfying watersports to enjoy on the Grand Strand. You don’t need a special license to drive a jet ski and you can ride in tandem or solo.

They also offer 2-hour jet ski adventure tours.


For the vacationers that love a rush and have great balance, try wakeboarding out on the Atlantic! Island Adventure Watersports also offers wakeboarding and wakesurfing for up to 6 guests. Lather on the sunblock and hang on tight while a professional speedboat driver whips you around the waves.

Boat Rentals

Laze about on the waterway and soak up the sun on a big pontoon boat. This is the perfect water activity for small to large groups. Action Water Sportz offers half-day, full-day, and sunset pontoon boat rentals that accommodate up to 11 people. So pack your cooler, grab a couple of towels, and head over to the Intracoastal Waterway

Surf, Paddleboard, or Kayak

For the vacationer looking for a laid back water activity, try renting a surfboard, paddleboard, or kayak! Take in the picturesque surroundings of the inlet on your stand-up paddleboard, kayak the serene waters of the Intracoastal Waterway, or surf the salty waves. Myrtle Beach Paddle Board & Kayak Adventures offer kayak and paddleboard rentals with free delivery, as well as lessons! Jacks Surf Lessons & Board Rentals offers surfboard rentals for all experience levels and lessons for beginners of any age.

Banana Boat Ride

The banana boat ride lasts 10-15 minutes and is fun for the entire family. Hold on tight as you fly through the waves trying not to fall off with excitement. Downwind Sails offers banana boat rides for up to 6 people, starting at $20 per person.
