Combine the thrill of riding a motorcycle with waterskiing and you have a Jet Ski Safari Adventure with Tidal Wave Watersports. The tours to the barrier islands leave from Isle of Palms and take participants to explore the South Carolina Barrier Islands, including a stop on Capers Island. You must be 16 years of age to take part in the tour, which is led by an experienced guide. Jet Ski rentals are also available at Isle of Palms Marina.
Bring a buddy for another adventure offered by Tidal Wave Watersports: A high-flying parasailing package, which gets guests 20 stories (or 200 feet) high for incredible views of the coastline. Participants must be 10 years of age for these tandem flights.
Other Tidal Wave Watersports activities include tubing, water skiing, kneeboarding, and skurfing. If you’re not familiar with skurfing, it’s wake surfing where the boat provides the wave. No need to go chasing natural waves on the beach (though that’s fun, too). With skurfing, you make your own.
Speaking of surfing, Kiawah Island guests can hang ten with Tidal Trails, which provides private and group lessons from an expert. Tidal Trails has been teaching surfing for more than a decade, and they’re sure to get you up on the board and riding the waves in no time.
Tidal Trails also offers a powerboat tour where passengers can explore the remote tidal creeks and waterways of the Lowcountry. Kids can even participate in tubing and wakeboarding on a tour.
If you would rather keep your feet on solid ground, there’s plenty of adventure on land as well. Book one of the game rooms at Elite Escape Games in nearby Mount Pleasant. For example, in Undead Outbreak you and your companions have an hour to make your way deep into an abandoned laboratory and unlock the secrets to escape brain-eating zombies. Other games include Escape Area 50, Derailed, and the new adventure Dinosauria. Whatever game you choose, it’s sure to provide a memorable experience.
Another adventure for landlubbers is Horseback Riding at the Seabrook Island Equestrian Center. Book a tour that includes riding on the beach and is suitable for all levels of riders - from beginners to advanced. There are also trail rides and pony rides for children 8 and under. The Equestrian Center also offers riding lessons.
So, who’s ready for an exhilarating vacation?
