Whether you like going with the flow or swimming against the tide, when you go on a water holiday it really doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t matter because you’ll the time of your life regardless! To see some of the water holidays you should try at least once in your life, make sure to just keep swimming* through this article.
If you ever find yourself needed to escape all the stresses of life back home, then why not get away from it all like never before by booking yourself onboard a river cruise. And, seriously, when you do so, you’ll feel all of your stresses just float away as you, well, float on down the river!
But what river should you be floating on down? Well, fortunately enough, there are a host of rivers to choose from cutting through cities and natural areas all over the world. You could float on down the Seine in Paris, for instance, and reap in all the romance of doing so; you could cut through Amsterdam as you cruise down the river Amstel, seeing all the history of Dam as you do so; you could enjoy seeing everything there is to see in Dublin by getting aboard a boat that will take you down the Liffey; or you could choose any other river cruise that tickles your fancy, most of which are offered by Love It Book It River Cruises.
As you float down the river of your choosing, and when you feel of your stresses in life disappearing, you’ll be glad you chose this type of water holiday.
River cruises aren’t the only type of cruise that you could fall head over heels for (hopefully not overboard) when you hop on board, because there are also long-haul cruises out there, too. And, if you’re the type of person that needs something to keep them entertained at all conceivable points during your trips away, then this could be the water holiday that matches your needs most perfectly.
Upon a long-haul cruise you would be sailing across the world’s seas as your travel from dock to dock and country to country. And, whilst you do so, you’ll have things such as restaurants, bars, casinos and swimming pools onboard to keep your entertained.
No, boat touring is not the act of having a tour around a boat. Boat touring is in fact the act of hopping onboard a boat and then allowing the captain of said boat to take you down a stretch of water in order to allow you to see everything the area has to offer.
Boat touring comes in many different shapes and sizes. You could be touring a city; for instance, as previously touched upon, you could board a boat in Amsterdam and have a captain and a tour guide show you all the noteworthy places in city. Or, you could be touring country areas; for instance, you could hop onboard a sodden-decked yacht and be show around France’s wine countries in order to see them first hand and maybe even try some wine.
Basically, no matter where boat tours take you, you will see things and you will learn things whilst onboard them.
Diving and snorkelling
If you want to do more on your date holiday than just be transported from one place to another via the waves and the current of the open sea or rivers, and you’re more the adventurous type, then you should consider going on a diving and snorkelling holiday.
What such a holiday would generally entail is you being taken out into the sea by a crack team of experts who, one, know how to look after divers, and two, know where to take divers to get the best diving and snorkelling action the seas have to offer. You’d then be given the chance to see what the sea has to offer below its surface, meaning you could quite literally see anything!
One of the greatest places to release your inner David Attenborough beneath the sea’s surface is Mexico, so make sure you bare that in mind when seeking to find your perfect diving expedition.
If you are truly adventurous and want to do more than dive beneath the sea, then water sports holidays should be atop of your water holiday list. They should be atop of your list because they will provide you with the both the wetness and the adrenaline you would need to have the perfect holiday.
But what kind of water sports can you do? Well, there’s water skiing or wakeboarding, two acts that will see you skim the sea’s surface at high speeds; there’s surfing which, of course, would mean you doing something similar except without having to be pulled along by a boat; there’s sea kayaking, which would entail you boarding a kayak and forging your way through the waters — a good place to do this the stretch of water between Loch Shieldaig and Loch Kinhorn in Scotland as along it you’ll see sea otters and porpoises; or there’s cliff diving, an activity that would, as the name suggest, see you diving from high cliffs straight into the sea.
If you do decide to go on a water sports holiday, just make sure to pack your wetsuit.
Water holidays are great for the soul because of how refreshing they are; they will always keep you clean because of all the water involved and they are most definitely something a little bit different to the usual type of holiday. So, stop making all of those excuses as to why you can’t go on a water holiday and unleash your inner water demon and get yourself booked on one, whether that means you board a boat or jump from a cliff into the water below!
