If you have never done any sort of water excursions, or if you have always wanted to try something new while in Myrtle Beach, you may want to check out Downwind Sails for some exciting water sports adventures during your next vacation at hotel BLUE.
Whether you are feeling daring and want to fly above the sky on a parasail or if you want to stay closer to the water and speed along on a jet ski, Downwind Sails has you covered, because they offer a diverse selection of watersports right here in Myrtle Beach!
One of these popular Myrtle Beach watersports is the banana boat rides where you and your fellow passengers skim over the waves of the open ocean while being pulled behind a jet ski on a yellow boat, which is actually shaped like a giant banana! These last for a total of 15 exhilarating minutes and are offered at a great value if you are looking to do an inexpensive water sport. Each boat can fit up to six people and you don’t have to learn any special skills to ride. Everyone is given a lifejacket to wear during the ride so you can feel safe. Plus, no reservations are needed! Just come while they are open and you won’t have to wait long, as rides depart every 15 minutes.
Parasailing is another popular Myrtle Beach water activity. They can often be seen floating high above the water on a clear summer day. With this watersport you’ll be lifted into the air with a parachute as your line is pulled by a boat. While flying 300 feet above the surface of the ocean you can take in the sights of the water and maybe even spot dolphins or other marine life while on your ride. Plus, you even get to make your way to the parasailing boat via banana boat! You can schedule up to three of your family members or friends to ride at the same time and as many as six people can go on the boat at once.
