|There are many types of water holiday available for travellers these days and you do not always have to be a competent swimmer to partake in them either. Water holidays would really appeal to the adventure traveller or those who are in search of an adrenaline rush.|
White water rafting is really popular in the modern era of travel and it is entirely possible to participate in this activity whilst on holiday or even when backpacking. New Zealand has become an extremely trendy place to partake in all manner of adrenaline activities like white water rafting and there are plenty of white water rapids scattered about the two islands. The Zambezi River in Zimbabwe is another popular destination for white water rafting. This mighty river is perfect as the water picks up momentum, creating rapids en route to the world famous Victoria Falls.
Scuba diving is one of the most exhilarating experiences your body can be put through, especially in the right surroundings. The Maldives, Great Barrier Reef and the Red Sea all offer great scuba diving amidst incredibly beautiful coral and shoals of fish. Professional diving schools are able to assist with all the tutoring and tuition you need to dive to the depths of the ocean. For those who take the time to complete the PADI open water diving certificate, the opportunities to dive solo and at night await.
Canoeing or kayaking can be done as part of a specialist tour where all the necessary equipment is provided for hire. It can be as exhilarating as white water rafting in some circumstances and canoeing or kayaking can be practiced at sea, although this would really not be for the faint-hearted.
Jet skis, parascending and snorkeling are all activities that can easily be partaken whilst holidaying in places like the Greek Islands, the Mediterranean coast of Spain, and other beach resorts around the world. Jet skis can be easily hired by the hour at the beach, snorkeling masks and snorkels are cheap and also available to buy at the beach and there are usually people available at beach resorts who are able to assist with parascending.
