It’s never too early to start planning next summer’s Myrtle Beach vacation! A lot of thought goes into what activities your family will choose to do during your stay and one of our favorite activities to recommend our guest are jet-ski rentals! Jet skis are a great way to cool, catch some speed, and explore the beautiful Grand Strand waters. Whether you choose your jet-ski rental to be winding through the different canals of the Waccamaw River, or prefer to ride the waves up and down the Atlantic Ocean coastline you really can’t go wrong! We have put together a list of the top Jet Ski rentals in Myrtle Beach to ensure your family is getting the best watersport experience!
Shawn’s Backwater Adventure
Choose from 4 different Jet Ski rental options at Shawn’s Backwater Adventure. Whether you want to explore the historic plantations on a relaxing waterway ride or you are an adrenaline junky with a need for speed, they have a rental perfect for you and your family! Drivers must be at least 16 years old with a valid license but the best news is that kids 12 and under ride free. Rentals start at $130 and they even offer lessons for those who have no riding experience. Shawn’s Backwater Adventure is located at 101 Fantasy Harbour Blvd and you can give them a call at 843-353-7020.
Island Adventure Watersports
Island Adventure Watersports offers 2 types of Jet Ski riding, a self-guided 1-hour rental, or a 2-hour backcountry jet-ski tour. Whichever you choose, we can promise it won’t disappoint! Both rides occur in the Intercoastal Waterway so you do not have the ocean waves (this is a calmer option that is great for younger ones). Rentals start at $95.00 and they are located at 5843 Dick Pond Road. Contact them at 843-650-7003.
Myrtle Beach Watersports
Myrtle Beach Watersports has 2 different locations depending on what Jet Ski rental experience you are looking for. Their Myrtle Beach location (8201 Marina Parkway) is great for those who are looking to get some speed and have 20 miles of free-riding space! Enjoy less boat traffic, no sand bars, a wide riding space, and no “No Wake” zones to slow you down. If you are interested in the 2-hour dolphin excursion, the North Myrtle Beach location is your best option (Harbourgate Marina). This location is closer to the ocean giving you a more scenic ride and more time to find a view dolphin. Rentals start at $125.00 and you can visit the Myrtle Beach Watersports website for more information. Drivers must be at least 16 years old with a valid driver’s license.
Downwind Sails Watersport
Downwind Sails has been providing jet-ski rentals to the Grand Strand since 1978. They are located at 29th Avenue South (so these are ocean rides) and have 2 choices of either 30 minute or 1-hour excursions. They pride themselves on hiring trained professionals who are CPR and US Coast Guard certified. Riders must be 16 years old and at least 42 inches high. Reservations are not required as walk-ups are always welcome. Tours start at $85.00. Visit the Downwind Sails website or give them a call at 843-448-7245 for more information.
