The days are longer, the sun is shining, and the warm weather has finally arrived. Summer is the perfect time to head out on a vacation and enjoy the nice weather, especially in places where it’s short lived. Many people folk to the water during the summer months in order to stay cool and take part in all the summer fun water activities.
Instead of sitting on the beach or dock watching other people enjoy the water, get out there and join them! If you’re looking for a little adventure or just want to try something new, here’s a list of 15 fun water activities to try this summer.
Canoeing is the quintessential summer activity. It’s so peaceful and a great way to see nature up close. If you’re going camping this summer, consider traveling by canoe between campsites or just having one along for the ride to do some exploring around the campsite. Expert campers might even do some portaging!
Heading to a cottage this summer? Definitely consider taking the canoe out. You can go out alone or with two other people (one person in each seat and another seated in the middle). Take it to go fishing, travel to a neighbors cottage, or just paddle around. You don’t need much expertise for canoeing which makes it perfect for beginners and even little kids. Just don’t forget to wear lifejackets!
