Summer beach season is upon us. Coastal South Carolina is flush with enlivened families and couples from all over the globe visiting Sands Resorts’ Myrtle Beach Waterpark at Sand Dunes Resort. Convincing you to spend one afternoon away from our waterpark will be difficult. The waterpark is free for guests–yes, you read that right. A new Myrtle Beach craze, however, is blossoming on the surrounding rivers, marshes, and beaches: glass kayaking.
Glass Kayaking is For Everyone
The idea is simple: create a transparent kayak so adventurers can see into the clear waters below. The 21st century sure is fun! The idea was simple, but the creation was complicated. Glass kayaks, sometimes called clear or transparent kayaks, are frequently made from the same material as bulletproof glass. These modern marvels also feature a UV layer to keep the glass from yellowing and your skin from burning. The frame is anodized aluminum, which in layman’s terms is a protective layer that prevents the kayak from being susceptible to breaking. The glass has an imported Lexan film, a high-tech polymer to make the vessel smooth, durable, easy to handle and soft.
Being able to look down into the Atlantic Ocean is a dynamic thrill. The most inexperienced individual can pick up the sport in nearly an instant in these kayaks built for all skill levels. Glass Bottom Kayak Tours is the lone Myrtle Beach adventure company to offer glass kayak rentals and tours. Tours start at an astoundingly low rate of $25 per person. Take a glass kayak tour of Cherry Grove Salt Marsh or Wacammaw River, or try the Waites Island Kayak Shelling Tour. The tours last up to 3 ½ hours, are family friendly, and professionally guided. Tandem kayaks are available, and remember to make reservations online.
The Best Myrtle Beach Waterpark
After a spectacular afternoon of glass kayaking through a nature preserve, saltwater marsh, and shelling on the beach, head back to Sands Resorts Waterpark. Don’t worry about long lines, high admission prices, or long drives–the waterpark is just steps away from your cozy guest room. This Myrtle Beach waterpark offers speedy waterslides, waterfall pools, an aquatic treehouse, lazy river, bubble pool, and prime sunbathing. Come for the area’s adventure, and stay for Sands’ exciting waterpark and incredible amenities!
