WATER SPORTS ACTIVITIES
A vacation on board in Spain is an ideal way to experience its limpid waters. Various amenities on board will make your sailing journey easier and unforgettable one.
You can choose among variety of boats of different type and length. The choice depends on your certification, navigational skills and experience. However, if you don’t have the required certificate, you can hire a skipper or a crew to handle your yacht and take care of all the tasks on board.
Feel the experience of being a captain yourself, provided that you have all adequate qualifications for navigation. If, on the other hand, you would like to enjoy being on board and gliding at top speed without taking the helm yourself, choose the skippered charter then, so that you could spend a carefree week at sea.
Another option would be to charter a sailing yacht, a monohull or a catamaran. If you have never sailed before, the best option is to charter a catamaran for its stability and comfort. It does not heel a lot which will make your journey pleasant and smooth.
Try and combine sailing activities with other water sport activities such as scuba diving to explore the spectacular water world of Spain, then snorkeling to enjoy the crystal waters of the Mediterranean using only goggles, a breathing tube and flippers. This way, you have an opportunity to explore the seabed of the Spanish coast and wonders beneath the surface.
Whether you choose scuba diving or snorkeling, you have to know some basic rules; the first one requires even more. You need to attend classes at certified professional centers to learn techniques and regulations.
Jet skiing is another interesting water sport activity that will certainly attract many tourists. It’s easy to learn and most important, it’s entertaining. This is the best way to experience the speed on the water surface.
