For Grand Strand vacationers with a strong sense of adventure, one of the best places to seek excitement is up in the air. The Myrtle Beach area offers some of the best and most scenic helicopter tours and parasailing adventures around. If you feel the need to get your heart pumping and your adrenaline flowing, then come on over and air it out!
By taking to the air with a helicopter tour, vacationers can get an exciting and breathtaking view of Myrtle Beach. Helicopter Adventures, located at Broadway at the Beach, offers some amazing high-altitude explorations that are sure to please avid adventure seekers. You need at least two people to join an excursion, so bring friends or family members along with you. Each flight can carry up to three passengers, and children under 24 months can ride for free if they sit in an adult’s lap. Rides start at $20. The tours range in distance from 2 miles up to 42 miles and are priced accordingly. Make sure you bring your camera so that you can capture this unique memory in photos. The morning hours are often the best time to fly without long wait times, and excursions start at 9 a.m. Go soar where eagles dare.
If more traditional means of flight don’t get your adrenaline flowing, becoming a human kite soaring 500 feet over the Atlantic Ocean might be just the thing to satisfy your adventurous spirit. If this piques your interest, you should experience parasailing — one of the most popular attractions in Myrtle Beach..
The crew at Ocean Watersports is trained to give you one of the most exhilarating air adventures of your life. Bring along your friends and family, strap in, and hold on tight. Riders must be at least 35 pounds to fly. You can also try tandem or triple flights with your buddies. When you are up in the air, keep a keen eye out for marine life swimming in the waters beneath you. Are you ready? Can you handle it? Then go fly.
When your adventures high above Myrtle Beach are complete, come back down to Earth at The Strand Resort. With comfortable accommodations and plenty of places like our oceanfront pool deck, tanning lawn and wide stretches of beach to relax, The Strand can help you get your adrenaline back down to normal levels in style.
