When visiting North Myrtle Beach, it’s a no-brainer that you’re going to want to spend some time building massive sand castles, lying on the beach with a cool drink and swimming in the surf. But the possibilities for adventure in and around the water certainly don’t end there. There are plenty of other ways to explore South Carolina’s beautiful coastline and the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Book a boat trip: If you’re lucky, you may catch a pod of dolphins swimming close to shore — but why leave it up to chance? Catch a dolphin cruise with Voyager Deep Sea Fishing & Dolphin Cruises to make (at least nearly) sure you get a chance to see one of the most beloved creatures of the sea! You can enjoy this two-and-a-half-hour boat ride most mornings, afternoons and evenings. Cruise guests get to watch dolphins — and the occasional shark — feed behind the local shrimp boats as they sip a cold drink and enjoy the view. Kids and adults alike will love seeing these majestic sea creatures.

You can also join the Voyager crew for deep-sea fishing trips. With the ability to book trips as short as five hours or as long as 13, you can make it an all-day adventure or a morning or afternoon activity. Hook large sea bass, king mackerel, grouper and so much more as you soak up some Carolina sun! Voyager Deep Sea Fishing and Dolphin Cruises is the perfect way to tour the ocean and meet some of its inhabitants.

Get wet and wild: If you’re seeking something even more adventurous, look no further than Myrtle Beach Watersports. This is a great place to rent a jet ski, book a dolphin cruise and even secure your spot on Blackbeard’s Pirate Cruise. Fly across the water in a jet ski as you look for dolphins and other marine wildlife, and even document your wild ride with your rented GoPro camera. No matter what adventure you choose at Myrtle Beach Watersports, you are in for a good time.

Explore the world beneath the waves: Sometimes getting up close and personal is the best way to enjoy your saltwater surroundings. If you’d like to explore the depths of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and have the time to invest in scuba lessons, look no further than Coastal Scuba. Take classes at this PADI-certified learning facility, then book an excursion to test out your newfound abilities. Enjoy the view beneath the surface on a half-day tour, or keep the fun afloat with a Gulf Stream overnight adventure. Explore World War II and Civil War wreck sites through goggles as the amazing Coastal Scuba crew leads the way. This is an amazing way to get in touch with the ocean!

While vacationing in North Myrtle Beach, don’t hesitate to get a little wet. While time spent enjoying North Beach Plantation’s luxurious accommodations and amenities is always a blast, you can really make your vacation one to remember by taking a dive into the ocean and exploring what all it has to offer.
