Life underwater is an entirely different realm of exquisite and out-of-this-world beauty. If you are fascinated by the vigor that colors bring, then underwater adventures should be on your bucket list.
I mean on top of everything on your bucket list! There is just no way you should miss an underwater adventure; it’s going to be like missing half your life for crying out loud!
Okay, I don’t mean to sound overly dramatic but it’s true. An underwater experience will change your perception of marine creatures and you may never be the same again.
The ocean is the topmost element we take for granted day by day but it’s funny that humans act this way because our Planet Earth is composed of 70% water.
Can you imagine an entirely different world living underneath us?
If you want to open your eyes to a magnificent underwater empire, check out these top 5 best underwater adventures in the world.
1. Swimming with Whale sharks in Cancun, Mexico
The whale sharks are one of the largest and most docile marine inhabitants that feed on planktons, krill, or anchovies. So there’s no need to fear these gentle giants.
Cancun is one of the best places to see free-roaming whale sharks because it’s known for the world’s second largest barrier reef. The best time to visit is between mid-June and August where the whale sharks elegantly glide in the water.
But please, keep your hands to yourself because they have a strict “NO TOUCHING” rule.
2. Scuba Dive at the Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Do you want to know an interesting fact? The Great Barrier Reef is the largest and healthiest coral reef in the world.
Because of its size, it’s can be seen in outer space! I don’t even have to mention all the various underwater creatures you’ll see, the abundance of 2,900 individual reefs and 300 coral cays says it all. You can expect a bio-diversified diving experience!
3. Cage Diving with Great White Sharks in Shark Alley, South Africa
South Africa is home to a number of great white sharks and ‘Shark Alley’ is one of the popular choices to encounter these ferocious creatures up-close through cage diving.
Take note that you don’t need scuba diving skills but the cage is submerged in the open sea with the great whites circling with curiosity, and It will seem like you can rub elbows (or fins) with these creatures because of the proximity!
The experience is just overwhelming!
4. Diving at the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park, Caribbean Sea
If you want a totally natural underwater experience with a touch of human creativity, then this is definitely for you. The park has 65 concrete sculptures that are bizarrely beautiful.
There are the ‘Vicissitudes’ where it features children holding hands, ‘The Lost Correspondent’ where a man is working on his typewriter, and so much more!
5. Atlantis Submarine Tour in Oahu, Hawaii
If you like to experience underwater adventure in the comfort of a submarine, tick this off your list! All you need to do is pick a spot near the windows and immerse in the beauty of Oahu’s brilliant underwater life!
