Wet & Wild in North Myrtle Beach

Typical daytime temperatures in North Myrtle Beach during the summertime range from a low of 85 degrees to a high of over 100 degrees. It is important to stay cool on the beach, and to stay refreshed so you can have an enjoyable vacation. If you’re not one to lazy the day away with your feet in the ocean, and need a little more excitement without leaving the beach strand, then try out a few wet and wild activities while you’re on the Grand Strand this summer.

Surfing has been popular in the Myrtle Beach area for decades. Not only are our waves great for beginners, but our water temperature heats up to over 80 degrees – which makes for an even more enjoyable experience. Participate in a surf camp, such as the Myrtle Beach Surf Camp, to learn this sport or to capitalize on your shredding skills. Most of the local instructors come with years of experience and provide all equipment and even snacks and drinks. You’ll find yourself wanting to go back in the ocean for several hours at a time.

After your surfing adventure, you may want to try something more high speed. Check out Bob’s Watersports in the Cherry Grove section of North Myrtle Beach for high flying parasailing fun. It’s a great way to see the shoreline of Cherry Grove from the air. They also have a great banana boat ride aboard their Red Shark inflatable. Families will love the speedboat and dolphin watch ride. Visit their website before you get to the beach for big money saving coupons!

Although it’s very tempting, don’t just lie around the beach on vacation. Take our advice and check out the various water activities on the strand. It’s a great way to stay cool on vacation.
