It's mid August now which mean we are getting closer to the end of Summer 2021, it’s time to make some more memories! Here are 5 outdoor activities on the water you can check out in the next few weeks before Fall comes.
There is something magically soothing about being on the water. That is why so many people enjoy sailing. Gliding on the water with the wind in the sails is a great way to spend a warm afternoon with good friends. Bring along a basket of food and a good bottle of wine or a six pack of beer and you can literally satisfy all of your senses. The beautiful thing about sailing is that you can enjoy this activity on any body of water that is deep enough. You don’t necessarily need to buy a sailboat and the boat doesn’t actually need to have sails. It’s just about getting a group of friends together and enjoying life.
2 Scuba Diving & Snorkeling
Technically speaking, scuba diving and snorkeling are not activities you can do on the water, but rather, they take you under the water. Even so, they are both great water activities. Both these activities will take you beneath the surface and give you an amazing view of aquatic life we don’t get to see on the surface. Snorkeling is relatively simple and you don’t need deep water and you can take your diving mask and snorkeling fins and snorkel almost anywhere with you. Scuba diving, on the other hand, is a little more complicated. Firstly, you need a considerable amount of equipment. You also need to take lessons and receive scuba diver certification, plus you will definitely need to be given a clean bill of health from a medical professional. If that doesn’t deter you then you won’t be disappointed by the world deep beneath the surface of the water. There are countless sea creatures to interact with … or avoid. If you are lucky enough to be able to explore a coral reef then you’ll see an underwater world that is beyond spectacular.
What better way to start a weekend than to grab a pole and go fishing. Fishing is pretty simple. You set up your fishing rod, add bait and cast. It doesn’t matter if you prefer lakes, rivers or seas, if you have a little bit of knowledge and patience, you’re bound to come home with dinner. Fishing is a relatively relaxing activity for the most part and there are many benefits of fishing. Once you’ve cast your line, you simply relax and wait for the telltale signs of a bending rod to signify that the fish are biting. While you’re waiting for this event, you are free to let your mind wander or simply enjoy the scenery.
4 Jet Skiing
There is another fun way of riding the waves and it involves a personal watercraft, more commonly known as a jet ski or a wave runner. Jet skis are a whole lot of fun. This activity can be done on any body of water but the real fun starts when you ride the Jet Ski over waves. Maneuvering your way around, over and through waves takes a considerable amount of skill and endurance. It can also give you a good workout as this bobbing and weaving through the waters can get quite physical.
If you like the idea of flying, you’ll love parasailing. This exhilarating activity involves you being strapped into a harness and attached to a parachute. The harness is attached to a motorboat by a long rope and as the boat picks up speed you are lifted into the air and dragged along by the boat.
The best points about parasailing are that you don’t necessarily need any skills to enjoy this great water activity. That makes it fun for everyone. You get to enjoy some pretty impressive views thanks to the heights you can reach and if you happen to fall, you’re above water. Like all water activities, there is always an element of risk, but for the most part, parasailing is relatively safe and, once you try it, you’ll want to get up in the air over and over again.
Whatever outdoor activities you choose to participate in on the water, always remember to make safety your first priority. Whenever appropriate, wear the relevant safety gear and be aware of your surroundings so that you and other aquatic enthusiasts stay safe. The safer you are, the more you’ll enjoy these fantastic outdoor activities you can do on the water, and the only difficulty you’ll encounter is staying out of the water. Hope you all have a safe and wonderful Summer!
