Jet Ski Rental and Tour

Welcome To Shawn's Backwater Adventure

Experience one-of-a-kind thrills!

There are Myrtle Beach jet ski rental services and then there’s Shawn’s Backwater Adventure! Trust us when we say that you’ve NEVER experienced anything like this! Imagine yourself speeding over the glassy and beautiful backwaters of South Carolina, winding through the moss-covered oaks and going to places you can’t access any other way! See nature untouched as you zip through some of the most scenic areas in the Grand Strand. Stop for pictures, stop just to take it all in, or don’t stop at all, open it up and enjoy an adrenaline-filled ride for real jet ski enthusiasts! You can even record your entire experience by renting a GoPro to capture your very own backwater adventure!

Meet Your Hosts

We’ll Show You The Secret Spots

Hey everyone, Shawn here. First, I’d like to thank you for visiting us! 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 jet ski, 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.
