Many individuals are content with simply visiting a theme park or relaxing at a beach when on vacation. For those who are looking for bigger thrills, adventure vacations are a great choice. There’s nothing quite like enjoying an adrenaline rush whether you’re in the water or thousands of feet above the earth. Consider the following three adventures if you’re looking for big thrills on your next vacation.
Swim with Some of Nature’s Most Intriguing Predators
There are exciting and safe facilities around the world where you can swim with some of the most fabled predators around, sharks. You can enjoy this great experience in Australia, South America and in some coastal states in the U.S. In general, you enter a caged enclosure prior to being lowered into the water so that you can experience the shark lifestyle first-hand. This one-of-a-kind adventure is sure to bring an adrenaline rush to even the most fearless of thrill seekers.
Float Thousands of Feet Above The Earth
Skydiving, the art of free-falling from a plane, has become very popular amongst thrill seekers who really want to step outside of their comfort zones. When you skydive, you’ll jump out of a plane that is anywhere from 3,000 to 13,000 feet high. You’ll enjoy the sensation of floating above the earth and then will return safely to solid ground via parachute. Tandem skydiving is offered by some companies, especially for new skydivers or individuals who don’t quite have the confidence to skydive alone.
Rush Down Thrilling Rapids
If you love water and want to cool off while seeking adventure, consider a whitewater rafting trip. There’s nothing quite as exciting as shooting down rapids aboard a raft. Rapids are rated according to skill level. Serious thrill seekers can choose more dangerous rapids. Thrill seekers who want to enjoy a family getaway can bring their kids along on a less challenging rapids adventure.
There is no better way to boost your vacation fun than by enjoying an activity that gives you a little extra adrenaline rush. Instead of going on a boring old family vacation, consider taking your kids on a thrilling whitewater adventure. Enjoy your next trip to the coast even more by swimming with sharks. You can even jump out of a moving plane and return safely to the ground when you choose to skydive. When it comes to adventure vacations, you are limited only by your imagination.
