Meet Your Hosts

Meet your hosts, Shawn Zimmerman and Steve Wiegel Hey everyone, Shawn here. First, I’d like to thank you for visiting If you are serious about finding a truly unique and memorable experience look no further! The waters of South Carolina have been my playground for the past 16 years. I have explored and rode South and North Carolina’s backwaters since I moved to Myrtle Beach in 1995. At Shawn’s Backwater Adventure, you’re not just renting a jetski, you are taking a tour of the Waccamaw river’s beautiful winding trails! Together we’ll ride out and visit some of the most remote, amazing and secret spots in the area. 

Steve and I are originally from Mt. Pleasant, Pennsylvania, I moved to Myrtle Beach in 1995.  I worked as a bartender at night and a jet ski rental guide during the day. This is where I found my love for the water and the thrills a jet ski can bring. After working for a rental company for the summer, Steve and I turned our passion into a reality by purchasing four rental skis and officially opening Myrtle Beach Watersports in 1997. We’ve been showing locals and tourists alike a great time on the open water, now I’m taking it to the back country where you’ll ride on glassy smooth water through the moss covered oaks. It’s a beautiful sight that you’ll have to see to believe! Set up your tour today!
