Many people travel each year to the Charleston, SC area to see the historic landmarks, have delicious meals, and enjoy South Carolina beaches. The majority of these visitors often overlook the fact that the area also has some truly exciting water activities available. Come stay with us at Shem Creek Inn in Mt. Pleasant, SC, just across the bridge from historic Charleston, and have some heart-pounding fun out on the water.
Shem Creek Inn is just minutes from area beaches such as Folly Beach, Isle of Palms, and Sullivan’s Island where you can partake in activities like these:
Parasailing is an effortless activity where you are towed behind a speedboat under a while attached to a parachute. You may have seen this on television or at the beach and thought that parasailing looked like fun, but you will never know how much fun until you hook up to that chute. During a typical parasailing adventure the boat will let out around 600 feet of line leaving you about 300 feet in the air! From that height you will see some of the most spectacular views of the area.
Riding a jet ski is one of the most fun experiences you may ever have. Like driving a motorcycle on the water, you will feel the wind whip against your face and hair as water splashes up while you speed over the water. It is near impossible to wipe the smile off of your face while you are cruising on one of these incredible machines. You may have the option to choose a single rider jet ski or a larger family style wave runner, either way you are bound to have lots of fun.
No matter if you an expert wave shredder or a novice who never stood on a board, you can still have fun surfing in the ocean around Charleston, SC. Surfing is one of the world’s oldest sports and has stuck around through the centuries partly because of the relaxation surfers get when out on the water and partly becuase of the overwhelming enjoyment of standing up and riding out a wave. Experts should ask locals about the best surf spots, while beginners should try taking surf lessons to know how to stay safe and use proper technique.
