Best Boating Activities and Tours in Myrtle Beach

In Myrtle Beach, boating and sailing are a way of life for locals and a favorite activity for visitors.

From Little River all the way down our beautiful coastline, you’ll find many tours and rentals designed to help you get up close and personal with Mother Nature.

We recommend:

The Carolina Rover Boat Tours
Board a modern 40-foot power catamaran and choose a shady seat from which to enjoy all that lies ahead on this three-hour ecosystem tour. Steered by a USCG licensed captain alongside a naturalist who will narrate and answer questions, the boat will bring you through peaceful vistas and salt marshes to an unsettled barrier island and the historic Winyah Bay Lighthouse. You may even see dolphins, sea turtle, gulls, terns, herons and egrets along the way!

Downwind Watersports
Discover hands-on water adventures in Myrtle Beach! Whether you’d prefer to relax on a professional catamaran tour, captain your own Hobie Cat or ocean kayak, or just hold on tightly to a banana boat towed behind a jet ski, there’s something here for everyone!

Enchanted Charters
Treat yourself to a captained sailing charter, waterway cruise or private charter trip, ranging one to three hours long. Sail along the intracoastal waterway to destinations including Bird Island and Waites Island, where passengers can relax with shell hunting, sunning, swimming or surfing. Sailing lessons, jet ski rentals, dolphin sight-seeing and sunset trips are often available as well.

As a guest of Avista Resort, you’ll also find world-class opportunities for many other beach adventure activities, including fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, scuba diving and surfing!
