6 exciting sports activities in Northern Michigan of the Caribbean islands (Part 2)

Rowing in Alpena, Michigan

Stand up paddle boarding, also known as SUP, is a sport that can be done anywhere in the world. When you catch it and find your balance on the board, it’s a great workout and a great way to explore the coast.

In Alpena, we met our guide for a shipwreck paddle from the Water Park. Many shipwrecks are located just off the coast from Alpena, and paddles can range from just half a mile to full day trips longer than 5 miles.

Petoskey

If you want to visit something unique, Petoskey has an underwater temple in Little Traverse Bay. The temple was built to commemorate the lost divers and every winter there is an event where people can look across the ice to see the 11-foot monument.

If getting into the water is not your cup of tea, you can take the glass-bottomed boat tour they offer in the Caribbean. Alpena Shipwreck Tours offers tours from May to October and visits some of the 116 shipwrecks in the area. The waters off Alpena are one of the most dangerous places on the Great Lakes, and they sink many ships.

Alpena is declared a National Marine Reserve and has attracted divers from around the world including the son of Jacques Cousteau Jean-Michel Cousteau as well as the discoverer of Titanic Robert Ballard.

Snorkeling

Shipwrecks in Michigan can also be discovered by snorkeling. If you like swimming, wear a mask and fins and take a dip in the water to soak. Many ships are within 10-20 feet of water, so you can dive and get a close look at a bygone era. It is best to hire a guide to know the country and where the shipwreck occurred. Scuba diving is a lot of fun, but swimming abroad can be tiring, so be careful.

We mixed our snorkel trip with the paddle board and had a place to relax after rowing off the wreck. You can rent swimwear, paddle boards and diving gear from local dive shops and hire a guide. In Alpena, we went with the Performance Locker located in Michele e-ke-Wis Park.

Which water sports to enjoy in a Caribbean vacation? (Part 1)

A Caribbean vacation is not a vacation until we get wet in the Caribbean Sea. The sapphire blue waters of the islands are so beautiful and fascinating, it would be a pity to miss a toe in the salty sea.

Although we enjoy luxury escapades, we also want to make sure we have great adventures. To help you get the most out of the water, we’ve put together our top 8 Caribbean water sports, which will make a great addition to your winter vacation.

While flying over the West Indies and the South Caribbean, we marvel at the ever-changing, beautiful blue water. From above, you can watch the colors change from light and dark as the depth of the ocean changes before us.

It took us two days to sail to the far southern islands and as soon as we arrived at the port, we began a roaring underwater adventure with The Sailors Riders at La Romana Dominican. It’s just one of the best Caribbean water sports we’ve tried, check out the rest below!

Swim with whale sharks – Mexico

Nothing is more magical than plunging into the deep blue waters off the coast of Cancun and facing the largest fish in the sea. They may be large but whale sharks are gentle giants that eat plankton. Their mouth is very large, but they cannot swallow you if they try.

Whale sharks seem to be moving at a slow pace, but keeping up with them is another story. Whale sharks really swim very fast so be prepared to swim so hard to keep up the pace. Check out our swimming experience with whale sharks in Mexico.

Snorkelling Thunderball Grotto – Bahamas

That’s where the Thunderball of the James Bond series was filmed. Into the Blue was also filmed here! It is not uncommon for Hollywood to flock to Exuma Cays to film blockbusters at Thunderball Grotto.

It is not just heaven, it is adventure! We’ve done a lot of scuba diving around the world, but our favorite scuba diving experience is definitely diving through the flooded holes of this hollow island.
