Myrtle Beach Jet Ski Tour

Meet your hosts, Shawn Zimmerman and Steve Wiegel! Hey everyone, Shawn here. First, I’d like to thank you for visiting our site. If you are serious about finding a truly unique and memorable experience then look no further! The waters of South Carolina have been my playground for the past 22 years. I have explored and ridden 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 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, and I moved to Myrtle Beach in 1995. I worked as a bartender at night and as 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 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!
