What you can expect
Tackle 1,500 acres of sand dunes over a 5.5-mile (9 km) stretch of beach in a top-of-the-line dune buggy. Hop into the driver’s seat and rev up for a thrilling off-road adventure full of dune jumping, adrenaline-pumping drifts and roller-coaster-like rides over the dunes.
Your dune buggy expedition begins with trained instructors who brief you in off-road driving safety, demonstrate the best practices, and illustrate tips and tricks to make the most of your time behind the wheel.
Once you’re familiar with the safety protocol and handling techniques, take your pick of the dune buggies and ATVs available – the compact and lightweight two-seater Marauder, the smoother-riding and spacious Prowler, or the low, light and speedy Sand Rail Dune Buggy.
Take off over the beach and feel the rush of wind as you whip, turn and ride up and down over 80-foot (25 m) sand dunes at speeds of up to 45 mph (72 km/h). Climb up to the top of the hilly beachfront for a look down at the rugged coastline and ocean waves before your thrilling ride comes to a close.
