Spend Some Time on the Water

Our wonderful waterways are meant to be explored and we have plenty of ways to do that! You and some friends can rent a pontoon boat and cruise along the coast, or rent a couple of jet skis for fun and flexibility on where you go. For an unforgettable experience, sign up for a guided dolphin tour. NMB has plenty of experts who know where to go for the best sightings. 

See NMB from sea level or high above with New Wave Water Sports! Their parasailing excursions offer incredible views and their banana boat rides get you out on the water where every wave is an adventure. 

Great Escapes Kayak Expedition offers plenty of outdoor options to get you out on the water. From guided tours to kayak and paddleboard rentals, they have everything you need to be outfitted for adventure. Explore more of North Myrtle Beach by choosing one of their tour and rental locations: Waccamaw River, Cherry Grove, and Waites Island. Feeling adventurous? Try all three! 

Speaking of kayaks, there’s no better way to explore our marshes. These thriving ecosystems are home to a variety of fish, Great Egrets, Herons, and other beautiful creatures that you can’t see anywhere else. 

Keep Your Feet on the Ground

A hidden gem, visitors will want to stop by Waites Island.  Waites Island is a natural habitat for a host of creatures and offers the opportunity to see NMB on a horseback ride with Inlet Point Plantation Stables. These gentle creatures will take you across the island, down the beach, or help you end your day with a sunset ride.

Fore! It’s a common cry heard across NMB. Our golf courses have been designed by some of the legends of the game and there’s something for all skill levels. 

Swing away in a batting cage, play a game of doubles tennis or see a performance at an amphitheater. NMB’s Parks & Recreation department runs facilities across the city dedicated to your fun. Reserve a picnic shelter for a large group or take a walk down a trail, you have endless choices of fun.
