Water Sports Family Holidays


If you’ve got an active family who are keen on having adventures and other truly exhausting varieties of fun on holiday, a water sports family holiday can be a great way to get some exercise and have tons of exciting and lasting memories of your time away together.

Sailing is a great activity for both children and adults. Look for beach resorts or specialist activity holidays which cater to sailors of a variety of levels. RYA (Royal Yachting Association) sailing courses or qualified escorts/instructors are available in many resorts throughout Europe and even worldwide, giving an assurance of safety as well as plenty of memorable trips out onto the ocean or other bodies of water. You can even attend “sailing clinics” at many resorts which will allow your family to gain official qualifications as well as being passengers – educational as well as fun.

If you’ve got children who are less confident around the water then snorkelling in the nearest shallows or rock pools can be a fantastic way to introduce them to the ocean and encourage them to become more adventurous.

Many Mediterranean countries and resorts offer amazingly clear water which is ideal for snorkelling for all ages, or if you’re travelling further abroad to Australia or some tropical island locale then ask around for the best locations and see if there are guided snorkelling tours available to show you the best underwater sights.

For the already confidence or adventurous, scuba diving is an exhilarating experience and can lead to exciting excursions exploring caves and shipwrecks as well as spotting a wide variety of marine life from fish and coral to jellyfish and even seals or dolphins.

If you’re looking for guides or instructors, PADI is the world standard for safety and competence and teachers are available for anyone over the age of eight. Most introductory lessons are taken in swimming pools to master the basics in a forgiving environment, while experienced divers can look for a wide range of open water trips along lake and ocean shores or via boat chartering.

Windsurfing is easily the most athletic of water sports and is fantastic for everyone on a family holiday as well as being a great way to keep fit. Many hotels and resorts will advertise themselves prominently as being located in prime windsurfing territory, and most of the same will offer board rentals, instructors and safety advice from a qualified waterfront team.
