Travel and vacation always add up to a great time. And vacations by the beach are preferred by 74% of people who responded to a survey about where they like to spend their vacations. Here are four great water activity ideas for you to try on your next vacation. 

1. Scuba Diving 

It’s been reported that one of the most magical elements of scuba diving is being able to remain underwater without having to come up to breathe. This allows you to float and move a totally different way than you do when you are on land. Scuba diving allows you to see underwater life up close, another thing that is hard when you are closer to the surface. And you can go at your own pace; there are lots of options for scuba diving, from five-star scuba resorts to one-hour lessons offered by locals. 

2. Snorkeling 

Snorkeling is such a gorgeous experience! On your next trip, why not change it up a little and snorkel with the dolphins? A dolphin snorkeling experience in Hawaii or another location would have to be one of the greatest sea adventures you could ever have! Whether or not you are a dolphin enthusiast (but how can you resist them?!), a dolphin snorkeling experience will be an unforgettable encounter because of all you will learn about the dolphins. However, be prepared, because many people report that the experience itself seems to go by very quickly!

3. Whale Watching 

A whale watching cruise is an experience that is so popular, people do it over and over again! Make sure you wear good gear, because you will probably get soaked. And it’s a great idea to have your camera ready, too, because the whales are gentle giants which have sometimes been known to spring out of the water and surprise everyone! 

4. Boat Tours 

Taking a boat tour is a wonderful way to see the beach and the land from a different perspective. The tours vary in length and in theme, so there is something for everyone. A harbor cruise, a brunch cruise, an all day excursion with visits to port cities, or a romantic sunset cruise...the choice is yours!

So, what is next on your list for vacation fun? A boat trip, maybe, or a dolphin snorkeling experience? Or perhaps you would like to try an offshore adventure like a whale watching experience. If you haven’t yet tried any of these great water activities above, maybe your next seaside vacation will be the perfect time for you to take the plunge!
