Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is treasured for its eye-popping live entertainment, pristine beaches, and championship golf courses. But don’t forget about our oceanside city’s many water sports, including deep-sea fishing, jet skiing, and, of course, parasailing. In many ways, parasailing in Myrtle Beach has become a rite of passage for adventurous families. There’s just something truly magical about the feeling one gains while suspended 500 feet above the Atlantic Ocean’s azure blue surface. Some describe the feeling as sheer euphoria or unabated bliss. What’s unique about parasailing, unlike many other thrill-based water activities, is that anyone from five to 85-years-old can strap in. So, the friendly folks here at Ocean Annie’s Resorts have pieced together our three favorite local companies, all of which show up if you search for “cheap parasailing near me.”
New Wave Watersports
New Wave Watersports, formerly known as Myrtle Beach Parasailing, remains one of the state’s top providers of aquatic thrills. There aren’t many regional adventure-based companies that primarily focus on parasailing in Myrtle Beach, but New Wave isn’t like most companies. New Wave is located approximately 2.5 miles north of Barefoot Landing in quaint North Myrtle Beach, far away from the droves of tourists on the Boardwalk. This patriotic establishment is known for its red, white, and blue parachute that you can easily spot a couple hundred yards out to sea during most afternoons. Perhaps you’ll also be able to hear the gleeful shrieks from the parasailers as well.
Aloha Water Sports
Aloha Water Sports, as its name suggests, brings a small slice of Hawaii to Myrtle Beach. This growing North Myrtle Beach outfit offers banana boat rides, jet ski rentals, dolphin tours, and, yes, parasailing in Myrtle Beach. Aloha prides itself on providing the speediest rides in town, thanks to its 31-foot, turbo diesel engine-powered boats. Because of these boat’s sheer velocity, you’ll likely obtain a higher vantage point through Aloha than its competitors. Despite tremendous street cred, Aloha doesn’t always pop on Google when searching for “parasailing near me.” But don’t let that deter you from seeking out their services!
You’ll often spot coupons on each site. Yes, Aloha’s deals are enticing, but Ocean Watersports’ overall prices typically take the cake. We always recommend calling ahead to obtain the cost of a 90-minute trip as parasailing prices usually vary, depending on the location, day of the week, and season. Ocean Watersports has been planting smiles on kid’s faces since 1981—they’ve been an integral part of Myrtle Beach tourism since day one. And being just a half-mile from the 2nd Avenue Pier is a major perk!
Sunbathing, Relaxing, and Parasailing in Myrtle Beach
After a jam-packed afternoon of shopping, jet skiing, and parasailing in Myrtle Beach, return to one of Ocean Annie’s Resorts along serene Shore Drive. Both resorts—Sands Ocean Club and Sands Beach Club—are affordable, modern, located on a particularly tranquil stretch of Myrtle Beach, and just minutes from exhilarating parasailing “near me.” Before your arrival, don’t forget to read about the city’s finest live music, beach bars, and bachelorette party destinations.
