Captain’s Quarters Nearby Attractions: Downwind Sails Watersports

Step out the door of Captain's Quarters, and the sparkling Atlantic invites you. Whether you're the adventurous type who likes to be in the driver's seat or you prefer to sit back and enjoy the ride, Downwind Sails has the perfect water activities to round out your stay at your favorite Myrtle Beach hotel and Vacation Myrtle Beach guests enjoy $10 off parasailing or jet ski rentals! For more on that, visit our Myrtle Beach vacation specials page.

For those looking for a wet and wild thrill, single or tandem jet skis are the best way to travel. One of the most popular activities at Myrtle Beach resorts, jet skis are easier to drive than you might think, especially after a few minutes of expert instruction from Downwind Sails.

If you're looking to escape the heat and get a few laughs, climb onboard one of Downwind Sails' Banana Boats. No lessons needed for this one, just climb up, hold on tight, and enjoy the spray in your face. Banana Boats can carry up to six people, and lifejackets are provided for all.

Soar with Myrtle Beach's majestic pelicans and wave to your buddies back on the sand as you enjoy one of the area's original watersports, parasailing. Downwind Sails is the oldest watersport company in Myrtle Beach, and their experts know every trick to give you the best views and the safest parasailing experience.

The best way to sightsee during your Myrtle Beach resorts vacation is to "see" the sights from the "sea." Paddle out in one of Downwind Sails' ocean kayaks. You never know what surprises the pristine Myrtle Beach waters will offer--you just might see dolphins at play as you paddle along. The sit-up-top ocean kayaks are stable, easy to use, and perfect for families.

Or, if you'd prefer to let ocean breezes power your journey, Downwind Sails has 14-foot and 16-foot Hobie Cats available for rent. Designed for easy launching, sailing, and beaching, these speedy craft are perfect for veteran sailors and beginners alike, and provide a Myrtle Beach vacation memory you won't soon forget.

Finally, if you want to cruise in style, try a Downwind Sails Catamaran Tour. Parties of up to six people can enjoy a pleasurable, scenic ride under full sail from Myrtle Beach to Surfside beach. Don't forget your camera!
