Top 7 Water Adventure Activities To Do In Belize

Are you thirsty for a little fun in the water? Do you have an appetite for adventure? Are you craving something new and exciting? Well, we know a place that can sufficiently feed your appetite for thrill.

No, we’re not talking about a warm shower or a refreshing dip in a pool. The place we are talking about is Belize! Belize is not only home to a variety of marine wildlife, but is also a spectacular location for some fun, water-based, recreational activities.

Scuba Diving

Enter into the world of fishes, crustaceans, mollusks and a few reptiles and mammals with your scuba diving gear. With the aid of a tank filled with compressed air and a dive mask, scuba divers breathe and see underwater, respectively, as they wander and explore the vibrant underwater environment.

If you want to view the spectacular underwater scenery without going too deep, snorkeling is the perfect option for you. Swim through the beautiful waters of the Caribbean with a pair of fins and gaze at the undersea world with the aid of a diving mask and a snorkel.

Wind Surfing

Shredding the waves is always an exhilarating experience, but there’s an equally exciting alternative awaiting you in Belize. With the combined disciplines of sailing and surfing, you can navigate the tropical waters by wind surfing, with the use of a moveable mast attached to a surfboard.

Not all recreational water activities require extensive contact with the water, and parasailing is a good example of this. A person can glide though the air with a canopy wing, similar to that of a parachute, while being towed. Parasailing presents a perfect opportunity for an aerial view of the sea and surrounding land.

Exploring the sea and the nearby, above-water scenery is quite easy with a kayak. You can paddle your way across the waters in your kayak and embrace the tropical sun, breeze, water, and surroundings. There’s also the possibility of a quick romantic getaway with your significant other.

Jet Skiing

If you are an adrenaline junkie that has a taste for something a little faster, then hop onto a jet ski! Zip across the grand Caribbean waters at speeds up to 70mph and traverse the sea at a faster, yet thrilling, pace on your personal watercraft.

Don’t be too quick to disregard fishing as fun. The combination of the fresh tropic air, quaint tranquility, memorable interactions with companions, and of course, the thrill of a big catch, makes fishing an enjoyable water-based activity.
