Gambling might not be allowed in South Carolina, but take a 3-mile boat ride off the coast and you’ll exit the coastal state waters. That’s where the fun begins on Myrtle Beach’s casino cruise, The Big “M” Casino.

Sailing out of Little River, North Myrtle Beach’s quaint and historic fishing village, The Big “M” Casino is a 186-foot, state-of-the-art gambling vessel that looks like a floating version of a Las Vegas casino. Featuring a wide selection of table games and slots, the casino cruise brings you close to all the action just three miles off the beautiful Carolina coast.

Since The Big “M” Casino also features a restaurant and open-air bar on the top deck, you can sit outside and watch the sunset or dolphins playing while you enjoy a cocktail or delicious meal. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets offer feasts fit for a king and queen while those face cards keep rolling at the tables.

Once the "gambling" sign is lit, it's time to hit the casino for some Blackjack, 3 Card Poker, Craps, Roulette and slot machines. The Big “M” Casino also offers nightly specials like jackpot bonuses and free bingo. Experience the thrill of gaming on morning and evening casino cruises six days each week, Tuesdays through Saturdays, on four- to six-hour tours. Reservations are recommended, so be sure to book in advance!
