Boating: Boating is the leisurely activity of travelling by boat, or the recreational use of a boat whether powerboats, sailboats, or man-powered vessels (such as rowing and paddle boats), focused on the travel itself, as well as sports activities, such as fishing or waterskiing. And this will bring us to the waited part of fun.
Fishing: there’s no need to go far offshore to satisfy the urge to catch fish. Some people prefer to bait a hook and wait for a fish to bite. Others prefer to troll with bait in the water. Still others love the rhythm and exercise of repeatedly casting a fly-fishing rod. All of those techniques can be used pretty much everywhere, with what you catch depending on where your boat is located.
Snorkeling: The fish swimming around the coral also can be breathtaking, from tiny to larger fish. With a basic underwater camera to capture your favorite moments, the fun of a few hours spent snorkeling can bring smiles in keepsake photo albums for years to come. Few sights are as delightful as the ones just off the swim platform of a boat, where wearing a snorkeling mask and fins lets you enter a whole world of natural scenery that doesn’t exist anywhere else. With swim guides all the fun one can get!
