Dive In to These Great Underwater Experiences

Monday, October 23, 2017

If you’re planning a vacation and you’re trying to come up with something different to do, take your head out of the clouds and place it firmly in the ocean! Did you know that over 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is water? Yet, how much time do we take to explore its depths? The average person spends very little time in the water, which is a shame because it is home to some very unique sights and amazing experiences. 

If you’re interested in exploring underwater, here are some of the best aquatic experiences on the planet:

See Grenada’s Underwater Sculpture Park

The best thing about exploring underwater is, of course, the beauty of nature that we don’t usually get to see in our everyday lives. That being said, us humans have a good track record of creating our own beauty, and that is very evident at the Underwater Sculpture Park in Grenada. Founded in 2006, the park, which is located underwater at Molinere Bay, is basically an artificial reef created out of various unique sculptures, which also attract plenty of natural wonders, including fish and dolphins, too! It’s a seriously magical place that everyone should make the effort to see at least once in their lifetime!

Go Scalloping in Florida

If you want to stay in the United States, but the pull of the ocean is too much for you to ignore, one rather unique trip you might consider taking is open to Homosassa, where you can partake in one of the many scalloping excursion trips that take place there. You’ll need nothing more than a good bathing suit, and snorkelling mask, which will enable you to explore the warm under waters of the state, where as well as seeing and collecting your own scallops, which you’ll be able to eat later, there’s a good chance you’ll see plenty of other aquatic animals too!

Stay at Fiji’s Underwater Resort

If you want to spend more than a couple of hours enjoying the exotic sights of the underwater world, then you simply must fly out to Fiji where you can stay at The Poseidon Undersea Resort in a hotel room that is actually located right down on the seafloor. Imagine laying in bed watching all manner of tropical fish float by - you’ll feel like you’re in your very own Disney movie! Even better, by pushing a button in your suite, you’ll be able to feed those beautiful fish for a once in a lifetime experience that you’ll never forget! It really is an amazingly magical place.

Make Friends with Great Whites

Great white sharks are equally magnificent and terrifying, so if you’re the adventurous type and you’re looking for a unique underwater adventure that you’ll be able to dine out on for years to come, why not book yourself onto a Great White dive? There are numerous places in the world, including California, where you can go down into the water and get up close and personal with the beautiful beasts (don’t worry, you’ll be safely sequestered in a cage) and that is sure to get your heart pumping!

Get Your History Buff on in Israel

If you like the water and you love your history, then it might just be time to start planning a trip to the Caesarea National Park in Israel. There, you will find the Old Caesarea Diving Center, which is basically an underwater archaeological site, where you will be able to see Sebastos, which was built by none other than King Herod himself, over 2000 years ago, in all of its glory. You’ll also see sunken ships, drowned docks and long-lost cargo amongst other things! 

Eat Dinner Underwater in the Maldives

If sleeping with the fishes in Fiji isn’t your thing, what about dining down there instead? You won’t have to spend quite so much time under the water, but you will get to experience its delights close up and personal, and you’ll get a good meal into the bargain too. Where can you do this? At the Conrad Maldives Rangali undersea restaurant - which is the only one of its kind - that’s where!

See a Shipwreck in Australia

The Yongala is an amazing shipwreck located off the coast of Queensland. Teeming with manta rays, sharks, coral and lots of colorful fish, it is an amazing sight to dive down and explore.

There really is so much beauty to see and so many things to do in our oceans that you’d be remiss not to give at least one of these great adventures a go!
