I travel a lot, and I love taking vacations overseas. But a lot of my favorite destinations have something in common. They are all close to the coast. I love getting out into the water. The sea breeze and the sound of the ocean lapping on the sand are intensely relaxing. I know I’ve arrived somewhere special as soon as I dip my toe in the water. And getting out onto the water is a great way to build up an appetite for the local cuisine too!

I love lazing on a warm, sandy beach and just listening to the sounds of the ocean. But being a bit of a travel bug, I love getting out and about and doing lots of adventurous things too. Water skiing is not for the faint-hearted. It takes a lot of core strength and balance to get it right even for just a few seconds. It’s fast and wet, and a lot of fun. Make sure you choose a reputable company to try this one out, or you could end up with a few bruises!

Surfing is something everyone should try once in their lives. There are some stunning places around the world to try and catch some great waves. Strangely, the most popular ones are in UK waters that are really cold! But you can enjoy surfing in the sun too in places like Australia. There are different sizes of surfboards, and a good surf school will help you choose the right approach for you.

Scuba diving is one of those activities that can give you an experience of a lifetime. You might be diving to see wrecks, or you might be looking for some of the most beautiful fish in the world. Queensland in Australia is one of my favorite places for scuba diving. But to make the most of it, you should definitely get some scuba diving classes in closer to home. This qualifies you to hire the equipment and visit the best dive sites. It’s certainly worth it too!

Swimming with dolphins is really hard to do in the wild these days. But If you want this incredible experience, there are several parks around the world. They have captive dolphins that are trained. Mexico is a great place to visit, and you can swim with dolphins here. The trainers are really good at helping you get this incredible experience. The dolphins might even take you for a ride.

Hiring a yacht is one of the most incredible things to do if you visit the Mediterranean. You can stop along the coast to visit several different countries. And traveling on a luxury yacht makes the whole experience even more incredible. This is the playground of the rich and famous, so you might even get a little celebrity spotting in while you’re there.

Getting out on the water provides some amazing experiences while you are away on vacation. And if you have the travel bug, why not include a boat or yacht as part of your travel plans? Enjoy the water safely while you are away.
