For those of us looking for a little sense of adventure on our holiday, we don’t always have to go for the full adventure holiday experience. You can get just as much of an adrenaline rush at your beachside resort – with water sports being the perfect choice for any adrenaline seeker. The world of water sports is consistently evolving, with new and exciting options becoming more available around the world for you to try on your holiday. Here, we’re taking a look at the most adventurous water sports that you should try on your next beach holiday!
Catamaran sailing is going to require a lesson or two before you can venture out on the waves on your own, but sailing around the blue seas of your holiday destination in the beautiful sunshine can make the lessons very much worth it. Fall in love with the ocean in a way you never have before without even needing to get wet. However, if you are looking to take a dive into the Big Blue, then you can do so freely before climbing back aboard and sailing away.
For a smaller take on sailing the blue seas, a kayak can provide you with an easier, more adventurous option. Get closer than ever to the beauty of the ocean, have complete control over your own vessel, and discover hidden beaches and beach coves that you never knew existed. If you happen to be somewhere like the Maldives where the water is clear enough, you might even be able to see the ocean floor under the water beneath you – keep an eye out for turtles!
Kitesurfing is not for the faint of heart, and it’s important to remember that if you have little to no experience, you’ll need to find an instructor. Many holiday resorts around the world will offer some form of kitesurfing lessons or even assisted kite surfing opportunities for its visitors, making this adrenaline-fuelled activity even more accessible. This thrilling water sport can make you feel like you’re really flying as you bounce along the waters. Keep your eyes open if you can!
For speed-loving adrenaline junkies, jet skiing is the perfect choice. Jet skis will send you speeding over waves at thrilling speeds, skimming across the water like a pebble, and giving you all the thrill of being on the ocean without needing to be in it. Make sure you take an instructor if you’re a beginner and wear a life jacket, because the speeds can be vigorous if you’re not used to it.
Scuba diving doesn’t necessarily provide an adrenaline rush, but it can be thrilling in many other ways. This particular water sport can be a calming, yet visually thrilling experience, allowing you to explore the depths of the ocean. Exploring amongst the wildlife in the ocean can provide you with sights you’ll never forget. From stunning coral reefs, shipwreck discoveries and fish you never knew existed, this is an experience that you should grab with both hands.
