White Water Rafting Class 5 Rapids – New Zealand

Try white water rafting in New Zealand on class 5 rapids if you want more of a rush. The world’s adventure capital is home to some amazing water sports. You can navigate the rough waters with the aid of knowledgeable guides, but that doesn’t eliminate your need to put in effort. To get through the run, you need to concentrate and paddle ferociously. When your guide yells “get down,” be ready to brace yourself and pay attention. You’ll be thrown into the chilly glacial waters if you make one wrong move. exactly like me! What a fantastic water activity.

Kayaking – Antarctica

Even though we’ve paddled in kayaks all over the world, nothing comes close to Antarctica. One of our most treasured memories was kayaking through rough ice while watching gentoo penguins, humpback whales, and leopard seals.

You can almost reach out and touch the wildlife when you paddle silently through this last unexplored region of the planet. You truly think you have found heaven on earth as you travel through fields of enormous icebergs and ice flows while admiring the stunning coastline of old glaciers.

Swimming with Whale Sharks – Mexico

You will never have a more magical experience than this one. You can get up close and personal with the largest fish in the world by swimming with whale sharks!

It is exhausting to swim alongside these graceful giants, which can grow to be forty feet long. But it is all worthwhile when you see their eyes and fins slicing through the turquoise waters with ease.

Swimming with Horses – Jamaica

One of the most original things we’ve ever done in the water is unquestionably this. The horses in Jamaica are renowned for their love of the water. Don’t worry; horses aren’t being forced to swim; if they don’t want to, they won’t. This is a great activity to try out because horses enjoy cooling off in the water.

Kite Surfing – Maui

A great way to spice up your travels is to try kite surfing, one of the coolest water sports in the entire world. It was so much fun for us to learn how to kite surf in Maui. If you can master kite surfing, you can go kite surfing anywhere while travelling. There is great kite surfing all over the world

Self Drive Zodiac Adventure – Alaska

In Alaska, Ketchikan is the best place to see humpback whales and is also home to many bald eagles. Being the captain of your very own zodiac is the best way to observe these fascinating creatures up close and personal.

 While driving through the bay, your Alaskan guide will point out salmon farms and totem poles. You’ll also get a taste of pioneer life when you stop for an outdoor cookout and roast marshmallows over an open flame.

Canyoning in Jordan

Imagine sliding down enormous boulders in the middle of a raging river and rappelling down a 30-meter waterfall. Such a water sport, indeed. That is the main focus of Jordanian canyoning.

Take a break from lounging in the Dead Sea by travelling to Wadi Mujib to go hiking through a magnificent canyon network. Bring a water-resistant camera because getting wet is the whole point of this trek.

 You bumble along the river, dodging waterfalls, climbing over rocks, and floating in the current.

Kayaking with Beluga Whales – Canada

Most people visit Churchill Manitoba to see polar bears, but there is an amazing water adventure to be had. Get on a kayak and go out to the harbour where thousands of cute beluga whales migrate through the area. They are playful and curious and will come right up to your boat to say hello

Helmet Walk – Australia

Scuba diving is undoubtedly one of the best water sports, but donning a helmet and walking through the Great Barrier Reef is one of the strangest and most unusual. No harm came to the corral during our helmet walk because we stuck to the sand and cage and enjoyed our time underwater.

Great White Shark Cage Diving – South Africa

Cage diving with great white sharks in South Africa was one of the most amazing underwater experiences we’ve ever had. Seeing the ocean’s top predator promotes awareness of sharks as magnificent creatures in need of protection. Every time they passed by the cage, it was an incredible rush.

Cage Diving with Great Whites in South Australia

In South Australia, we went on another cave diving excursion, and it was a totally different experience. Sharks are lured into the water in South Africa using fish guts (boats go to the sharks’ regular feeding grounds to avoid upsetting the food chain), but in Australia, they are drawn in by sound. We played air guitar while waiting for the sharks to approach while the music blared from the boat!
