If you have a need for speed as it were and want something different than driving fast cars, doing the “loop-the-loop” on countless roller-coasters or even bungee jumping, then maybe it’s time to for some thrilling water sports! Sure, it may not sound like something that will get your adrenaline pumping, but you would be quite wrong to make such an assumption. When it comes to water sports action, the Maldives is undoubtedly one of the best spots in the world to enjoy all the thrills and spills these activities have on offer. For pure convenience and fun, look to stay at Maldives luxury resorts that offer the full range of water sports so you can get straight into the action. PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi is an ideal option in this regard.
So where to start in the wide ranging smorgasbord that is water sports in Maldives? Perhaps begin with something simple, like snorkelling, so as to get a “lay of the land” as it were! Yes it is slow paced, but then again, don’t pass up on the chance to witness some of the most spectacular underwater sceneries in the world, be it vibrant coral or fascinating schools of fish. As any serious underwater explorer will tell you, there is more to discover the deeper you go and diving excursions provide the perfect platform to feel that rush of adrenaline as you discover a whole new world beneath the waves.
However, there is no substitute for speed and the wonderful playground that is the Indian Ocean provides the perfect place to try water sports that will certainly have your heart racing. Jet skiing, wakeboarding and waterskiing are all on offer as are banana boat rides that are a particular favourite with younger visitors. Of course Mother Nature also provides her own elements for some excitement on the water; windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing are also equally as exhilarating as motorised water sports.
You can always opt to slow things down a bit after a heady morning and afternoon of fun in the surf. Kayaking out in the open sea does offer pure adventure especially during sunset, while this is also the ideal time to engage in a bit of fishing, as you cast your line out to sea in wait for that tug which signals the beginning of a “battle” on the waters.
