    “In one word, AWESOME!!”

        
    My son and I thought we would give it a try. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The flight instructor gave excellent directions throughout the experience. There was a second instructor always there in the water when help was needed. I highly recommend this adventure for a thrill of a lifetime.

    First Class!

         There's a reason why Downwind Sails has been in Myrtle Beach forever. They are awesome folks and I'm glad I got to go out on a Hobie Cat and SUP. I'll do the parasailing, jet ski and more on the next visit.

    “Ride of a lifetime!”

        
    Not evening knowing what a banana boat was started this day. All I have to say is Jeremy was an Awesome Jet Ski guide. He waited to when we asked to bounce us off then he did very quickly. He then picked up and showed us a "cannonball" jelly. Took the time to explain it and let us handle it. It was above and beyond a great experience. Please let management know how great Jeremy was. he made it so much more than just a ride in the ocean.

    “Definite Must!”

        
    We went ocean kayaking which was an absolute blast! It was cheap and so much fun! You got to go where you wanted without a guide! Then we had to go back the next day for more so we tried parasailing! I definitely recommend trying it. It's not as scary as it looks! Going up is smooth as well as coming down. We even got some pictures taken and they turned out great!
