Jet Ski Rental FAQ
1.How much is it to rent a jet ski in Myrtle Beach?
It all depends on how long you want to go for! Our half hour tour will take you towards Sunset Beach, North Carolina. Starting at $65 per jet ski. For an hour, you have the option to remain in the Intracoastal Waterway keep going past Sunset Beach, towards Ocean Isle and as far as the Shallotte Inlet. Or head out to the Atlantic Ocean to ride the swells! Both starting at $95.
2.How old do you have to be to rent a jet ski in Myrtle Beach?
Any age can ride/"drive" with a licensed adult behind them. You must be 16 with a permit to drive alone. Must be 18 to carry passengers.
3. Do we need reservations?
We strongly recommend reservations 24 hours in advance. That way you do not have to wait, or risk us being booked up already. We like to keep our tours as personalized as possible, by booking ahead you ensure your crew and equipment will be ready for you when you arrive.
4. We don't want a guide... Why guided tours?
Our number one reason is safety! We want our customers to have the time of their lives. But we hate to see people hurt themselves, get lost, or damage the equipment and have to pay for those damages. Therefore we only do guided tours, to help prevent any type of hazardous situations. Our guides still want you to have a blast, so we will ride you at whatever speed and spend more time where you want!
5. How often do you see Dolphins in the 2 hour tour?
We see them very often. The Dolphins like to hang out by the Shrimp Boats off the coast. When they are out there, which is often, it is very likely that we will see them. If the Shrimp boats are not out there, our chances are 50/50. Our guides will look in the places they tend to frequent in the area, but keep in mind that they are wild animals.
6. Where are you located?
We are located in Little River. We are a short 20-30 min drive from most places in Myrtle/ North Myrtle Beach, Ocean Isle, and only 15 minutes away from Cherry Grove, Sunset Beach and Calabash! However, we are closet to the inlet , and you will have more time to ride out in the ocean!
7. How far away is the ocean?
That all depends on your speed .We are about 5-7 minutes once we leave the no-wake zone! After that there are no more no wake zones between us and the Atlantic! We are the closest jet ski company to the Little River Inlet! Therefore if you are looking for ocean riding, we get you out there faster and ride out there longer than anyone else.
8. How fast do the Jet skis go?Top speeds are 46 MPH.
Our guides will adjust their speed to yours! We will take it as fast and as slow as you want to go!
9. Are there sharks in the water?
Last time we checked, the best indicator to predict that is... if the water is salty, then yes, there are definitely sharks in the water. But not to worry, we will instruct you to operate our equipment so that you are comfortable, and in control enough to not go in the water if you don't want to. Truth is, the odds of getting attacked and killed by a shark are 1 in 3,748,067. In a lifetime, you are more likely to die from fireworks (1 in 340,733), lightning (1 in 79,746), drowning (1 in 1,134), a car accident (1 in 84), stroke (1 in 24), or heart disease (1 in 5).
10. Is there a weight limit on jet skis?
11. Can you swim with dolphins in Myrtle Beach?
Swimming with dolphins is technically illegal in Myrtle Beach. Little River Jet Ski will get you up close to them as we can, however we are not allowed to swim with the dolphins.
