Take a Tour on Wet, Wild Side in Myrtle Beach

Whether you love to live on the wild side or prefer to keep things on the mild side, Myrtle Beach has plenty for people of all walks of life to have a good time. Beyond the beach, golf, shopping and dining, Myrtle Beach offers a long list of tours and excursions to make your visit complete and send you home with a lifetime of memories.

For some, a trip to Myrtle Beach means doing things they could or would never dream of trying back home. Parasailing, for example, which involves riding high above the ocean on a boat-propelled parachute, is one of those adventures that have to be done at the beach. Outfitters like Captain Dicks and Blue Water Adventures can handle all your watersports needs, including deep-sea fishing excursions and dolphin-watching tours. Jet-ski rental, Banana Boat rides and canoe/kayak tours are among the many fun activities you can try in Myrtle Beach.

But for those who prefer the slow lane, Myrtle Beach also has a wide selection of scenic and historic tours, such as Hobcaw Barony and La Belle Amie Vineyard. Spend a day relaxing in the lovely Lowcountry terrain or sampling local wines without getting too dirty. After all, adventure, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
