So it’s no wonder that some of the best holidays you can have involve communing in some way with the world’s oceans, seas, lakes, rivers and streams.
Scuba diving allows you to immerse yourself in the magical life of the marine underworld. You have finger-tip access to the fish and reefs, the sharks and wrecks, the squids and whales, all whilst sucking in sweet regulated oxygen. And whether you have the skills of Jacques Cousteau or have never seen the inside of a snorkel, there’s a holiday destination and course with your flippered name on it.
Above the sea, there's a whole other level of aqua fun to be had, be it skimming over the surface in a dinghy, powering through waves on a sailboard or being whipped around at supersonic speeds on water skis. Watersports holidays combine a tantalising mix of speed, sun, salt and surf, and there are as many different activities to try as there are muscles in your body. After a week, you’ll feel every single one of them.
