Written by Felicia Priedel

With the summer heat in full swing, it’s the perfect time to get in the water and enjoy amazing water-based activities. Here are five unique and thrilling water activities you need to try before the summer ends.

Spend the Day Packrafting

If you enjoy being near the water but don’t necessarily feel like being submerged in it, you should spend the day packrafting. Enjoy the calm river and scenic panoramic views, or go for more challenging and thrilling waters with a group of friends on a packrafting adventure. Remember to bring all the essentials to have the best day on the water.

Hang Ten

If you’re familiar with the world of surfing, you should try performing a hang ten when out surfing. You can accomplish this technique by balancing the board and walking to the front of it to hang all 10 toes over the edge. This is a fun trick that you can do on a heavy longboard and feels rewarding when accomplished.

Make Friends With Marine Life

Underwater scootering, snorkeling, and scuba diving are excellent ways to get up close and personal with marine life. These activities are immersive and allow you to interact with and observe the underwater ecosystem and intriguing aquatic animals.

Be sure to maintain safe distances and not directly interfere with the aquatic life during your brief visit to the sea.

Give Wakeboarding a Try

If you’re looking for a new and thrilling water-based activity to try this summer, consider wakeboarding. Wakeboarding is a high-adrenaline activity that consists of the rider standing on a wakeboard and holding on to a handle while someone tows them across the water on a motorboat. Seasoned riders often do midair tricks and special maneuvers, but if this is your first time, hold on and enjoy the thrill of gliding through the rippling waters with a scenic view.

Enjoy the Breeze While Windsurfing

Windsurfing is a unique and fun water-based activity that combines sailing and surfing. If you enjoy both activities, you’ll love catching the waves and feeling the cool ocean breeze. This is a great activity that you can enjoy whether with a group or alone.

Try some new activities and enjoy the cool, crisp water as you take in the summer sun. You may discover a new hobby that you enjoy and want to improve upon because of this list! Try these activities out for your next planned summer activity.
