Myrtle Beach is home to beautiful beaches, award-winning golf, delicious dining, and of course, endless fun! But let’s face it, our summers get hot. What better way to cool down than enjoying a day on the water exploring all of the watersports that the Grand Strand has to offer? We’ve put together a list of the best watersport options convenient to The Coral Beach Resort.
Parasailing in Myrtle Beach
Experience beautiful scenery, view sea creatures below, and have a definite adrenaline rush as you soar 300 feet above the Atlantic Ocean! Downwind Sails Watersports has 2 locations along the Myrtle Beach boulevard but their 3rd Avenue south location is most convenient to us.

Flyboard or Wakeboard in Myrtle Beach
If you’re looking for a fun way to make a splash and cool down, a flyboard or wakeboard rental is an adventure for you! Visit Island Adventure Watersports located just off Hwy 17 in Myrtle Beach for their Fly and Wakeboarding rental experience. Their US Coast Guard Captained Staff will take you on a memorable trip on the scenic Waccamaw River. Up to 6 guests will ride on a brand new 21’ Super Air Nautique Professional Wakeboarding Boat, where you’ll be challenged in a fun and exciting ride. Wakeboards are very similar to a surfboard being pulled behind a boat, and you’ll be able to attempt various acrobatic maneuvers including jumps, dips, turns, and dives. For flyboarding, you’ll be water jet-propelled and fly in the air like a bird and then dive in the water like a dolphin. You’ll use power from jet skis, and the board will take you high up in the sky for the ride of your life. This new extreme water sport allows you to fly over the water, under the water, or fly freestyle as you learn to control your experience. Visit Island Adventure Watersport’s website for even more information and to book your watersport experience today!
