I’ve been on various sized boats, I tried to wind surf (that ended in a near concussion) but I’ve never gone canoeing, surfing, tubing or jet skiing. I tried water skiing once on the Mississippi River…never doing that again.
What have you experienced/like to do – or haven’t yet – on the water?
I love sailing, and snorkeling. I’m not a fan of water sports like skiing, and I confess I’m not at all fond of those personal watercraft. Still, to each their own — and since I really prefer offshore sailing, there aren’t many jet skis to contend with!
I haven’t been snorkeling in ages but when I was doing it I loved it!!! I want to try a jet ski just to say I’ve done it but it is awfully noisy.
And waht about sailing? My favourite hobby!
I can’t remember if I’ve been on a sailboat or not… but it sure does look like a wonderful thing.
It certainly is!
i have sailed, skied, rafted, tubed, kayaked, surfed, snorkeled, and swam in lakes, rivers, oceans and seas in many places around the world. im not rally a water person and prefer to keep my feet on dry land. lol
You’d never know it by all you’ve done and where! lol Whenever I’ve been in the water I’ve preferred it to be clear enough to see if there was something I should avoid! But best ever was snorkeling with sea turtles in Barbados ♥
I am not a big fan of water sports to begin with :)Will never do the kayaking at night that we did at the Bioluminescent bay in Vieques. It was scary as our kayak got caught in the mangrove roots.
That would put me off doing kayaking again! But I do like being in and on the water.
My favorite was a whale watch in a little Zodiac. Big whale, little boat.
Whale watching is on the bucket list too. Hope you got great photos of the whale!
I went sans camera. Sometimes you just want to enjoy the experience.
Just went canoeing the other day. This weekend we’ll be kayaking and standup paddle boarding. Years ago, we owned our own ski boat and wave runners … so much fun. I’m not a fan of sailing (motion sickness) but loved our snorkeling trips to St. Thomas/St. John.
I do miss snorkeling. It’s been years since I’ve done it. Only got seasick on a big cruise ship once and then on a smaller boat out fishing in Grand Cayman when a storm hit. Thought for sure it was going to be Gilligan’s Island time.
Brave of you to try water sports. The only water sports I did was swimming. I have motion sickness too. Let’s stay safe on land then LOL! Love the photo.
Thanks! I just know that the smaller the boat the more I’m going to need Dramamine 🙂
Yes, small boats make it worst indeed. 😀
Hubs said I turned green on that fishing trip!
OMG! I can imagine!! How awful it must have been.
As you know I grew up on a lake… so I’ve pretty much have done it all. Except a jet ski. It’s loud… but I do want to try it.
Go for it!
When we travel we always try to add a water excursion if we can. Whale watching in Alaska, watching the Lobsters caught in Maine and of course we love to cruise and we will again once America is welcomed to other countries again and this dang virus is gone.
I’m not sure I’ll ever be into cruises again. I just miss being in the ocean splashing and floating and enjoying it.
I was practically raised on the water. We had a house in Africa right by the sea. I spent almost 5 years (from 5 to 10), rushing to finish my homework to jump into the water. My parents had a motorboat. We used to go to the islands every Sunday. I must have learnt to waterski when I was 7. Love the sea…
All is well?
So far so good! I still cannot waterski but I will always love the ocean.
