Over 70% of the earth is covered in water and to ignore exploring it would be to deprive oneself of some of the most amazing sights our planet has to offer. Oceans, bays, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, ponds and streams all have different ecosystems living within them and they also offer different sporting opportunities. Scuba dive in the ocean, kayak on a bay, water ski on a lake, riverboard in a river, swim under some waterfalls, hike up a stream, and cross a pond. So much to do where does one start? Some of these activities may be foreign to you but why not give it a try?
For example – Scuba diving – it was one activity I wasn’t eager to try. I felt like it would be too much with all that gear on so I shied away from it despite my love for the water. I finally took it up as a means to explore one of Canada”s many National Parks (that one being located in Tobermory). I never expected to find diving so relaxing and enjoyable. The first time I was in the water, I was in the St-Lawrence River. It was choppy and there were noises of all the shipping vessels going by while Seadoos ran the waves behind them. It was a little hectic to say the least but when I put that regulator in my mouth and dropped beneath the waves, it was a whole different world. Serene is the best way to describe it. You feel like you are floating along and that time itself has been slowed and it is something that I cannot recommend enough for people to try.
