Best Vacation Destinations For Water Lovers

Whether you are surfing on top of the waves, or exploring the world beneath, getting out on the water is an exciting way to spend your vacation time. With over three-quarters of the earth's surface covered in water, there is no shortage of destinations for those that can't resist the draw of the deep.

With so many activities to enjoy, there is no shortage of sports for anyone that loves the water. Scuba diving, skiing, swimming, and surfing are experienced in all corners of the world on every kind of water.

You can rent a boat with a Stryker T-Tops tower for some wakeboarding or dip under Australia's crystal clear waters, or explore the sea creatures. Let's take a look at a few of the best vacation destinations for water lovers.

Colorado River

The cool and calm waters of the Colorado River, combined with the warm summer temperatures, make for the best conditions for summer watersports. The river is one of the best places to enjoy wakeboarding, skiing, and tubing. Enjoy the stunning scenery during a relaxing cruise through the canyons or get your adrenaline flowing behind a racing speedboat. There are many areas stretching between three states to enjoy this iconic western river.

Great Barrier Reef

You don't have to be an expert diver to enjoy a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. This wonder of the natural world has much to offer everyone that enjoys the water. You can enjoy sailing on a catamaran to explore the beauty of the reefs and islands. Stop for a drink at one of the many floating island restaurants. The reef is also one of the most coveted diving locations in the world. Rent your equipment for a day of unbelievable underwater sights.

Venice

What could be more exciting for water lovers than visiting a city built right on the water? This historic locale was constructed on over 100 small islands connected by a maze of intricate waterways. To get around Venice, you will need to hire a boat or gondola to row you through the streets made of water. Visit the charming squares, churches, and art galleries before continuing your journey through this floating city.

Hawaii

Hawaii is a water lover's paradise. The pristine waters are home to a wide variety of watersports and coastal vistas. Known for some of the best surfing waves in the world, Hawaii will not disappoint anyone looking for adventure. Scuba diving, snorkeling, wakeboarding, and parasailing are just a few of the best things to enjoy on Hawaii's waters.

Key West

Located at the southernmost tip of the continental U.S. in Florida, Key West is a picturesque and vibrant destination and a haven for water lovers. Enjoy a sunset cruise around the islands, sink under the waves for some snorkeling or soar into the skies on a parasailing adventure. Key West caters to anyone that can't resist the pull of the waves and enjoys kicking back and relaxing on the shore.

A vacation isn't complete unless it involves some time on the water. If you can't resist the ocean, lakes, and rivers of the world, you should consider some of these remarkable destinations that will thrill anyone that loves the water.
