Boatloads of Fun
Fun stretches as far as the eye can sea in NMB (pun intended!).
Fishing is more than a pastime but a way of life here. As a result, there are plenty of year-round angling options, from inshore and surf to deep-sea and pier fishing.
If you’d like to go on a fishing charter adventure, you've got your pick of outfitters, from Captain Smiley Fishing Charters for inshore fishing to Calabash Fishing Fleet offering deep-sea adventures. These charters will provide you with everything you’ll need out at sea, from an experienced guide to equipment, so you don’t need to pack a thing. For pier fishing, don’t miss Cherry Grove Pier, which features a pro shop that’ll rent you everything you need for an unforgettable day of fishing.
If your idea of a day on the water is on a luxury yacht along the scenic Intracoastal Waterway, you have your pick of charter companies, including Luxury Charter. A perk of boating in NMB is that, when you get hungry, you’ll find dock parking at several waterfront restaurants, like Boardwalk Billy’s.
You can also take a sunset cruise of the local waterways aboard the Barefoot Queen Riverboat. For a splashing good time, try a dolphin tour. There’s no limit to all the boating fun available in NMB.
If you want to add horsepower to your water excursion, go jet skiing in the Intracoastal Waterway or parasailing in the Atlantic Ocean. Hop on a banana boat for the ride of your life. Outfitters like Aloha Watersports and New Wave Watersports offer competitive rates and packages.
On the Sea Screamer, you can experience thrilling sights and high speeds on the high seas. If wakeboarding is more your sport, or you’ve always wanted to learn, visit Shark Wake Park, which also offers a floating obstacle course perfect for the entire family.
By the Sea
North Myrtle Beach features a nine-mile stretch of beaches, from Cherry Grove to Windy Hill. Spend your trip tanning by the shore or swimming in the Atlantic, open to beachgoers year-round. Water temps hit an average of 55 degrees Fahrenheit by March, which may be too cold for swimmers, but great for divers and surfers in wetsuits. In May, the average temps hit the high 70s just in time for summer vacation.
With so many activities to enjoy in NMB, you’ll want to keep coming back to the waters of the Grand Strand for a refreshing getaway.
