If you are a thrill seeker onto discovering world’s most stunning underwater life or someone who likes to battle the waves and tides for a soaring adrenaline, you need to hear about these five destinations in the world, offering excellent opportunities for water sports or water-based adventure.


Kayaking In the Gauley River (West Virginia, US)

The release of 2800 cubic feet of water into the Gauley River is one of the most awaited events by water sports enthusiasts, particularly kayakers, because with it the river turns into one of the best kayaking spots in the world. The rapids of class 1-5 are available for navigation but it’s the Upper Gauley that holds the most challenges. The best time to plan this adventure is the annual Gauley River Festival that brings expert kayakers from far and wide.



Snorkelling in Belize

For snorkelling, Shark Ray Alley off the coast of the biggest island of Belize – Ambergris Cycle – is a popular choice. Docile Nurse Sharks and Southern Sting Rays pay regular visits to the divers in the clear waters of the alley. When at Ambergris, be advised to dive in the Great Blue Hole, a limestone cave that began forming around 150,000 years ago, and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Scuba Diving, and Swimming with Manta Rays in the Maldives

The Maldivian islands are famous for abundance and diversity of marine life. One of the friendliest creatures in the Maldivian sea is the Manta Ray. North Male Atoll is one of the most popular manta points. Here, Mantas come so close to the surface that you don’t even have to go diving to the sea to see them. Being away from any land mass, and boasting of healthy corals and marine life; the Maldives is any diver’s dream destination. You can even take PADI’s introductory scuba diving course to get initiated.


Freediving in Mexico

Mexico’s Sea of Cortez is popular as “The world’s aquarium,” for holding one of the most diverse marine lives. The Costa Maya and Riviera Maya have long been divers’ favourite spots in the world for their ability to offer anything from intriguing cenotes to standard reefs. It is here that you can scuba dive with whale sharks, sea lions and jackfish. You can also explore centuries-old shipwrecks here that have been claimed home by some of the most beautiful species of fish.


Diving in the Andaman Islands

The Andaman Islands administered by India and located in the Bay of Bengal offer excellent opportunities for diving and exploration of the underwater world. You can choose the Havelock Island or Neil Island as your base and take a liveboard diving vessel to take you to the Volcanic Barren Island, marked by reefs, steep walls, sandy bottoms and coral gardens. Some of the most preferred diving sites here include Washing Machine, Dixon’s Pinnacle as well as walls and channels off Havelock Island.
