We’ve prepared eight incredible water sports for you to try out while you’re on the vacation of a lifetime, so get ready for that adrenaline rush to kick in!

1. Flyboarding

Flyboarding has become one of the most popular forms of adventure in a rather short period of time. For those of you who are hearing about this awesome water sport for the first time, flyboarding consists of having a water spray attached to your boots.

This powerful water spray then propels you in the air, or to dive into the water at whichever intensity you choose. It also gives you a chance to show off some moves, so try doing some backflips or 360-degree loops. Whichever tricks you decide to go for, an adrenaline rush is guaranteed!

2. Sea Walking

If you are a sea-life enthusiast, you will absolutely adore sea walking! This unique experience allows you to witness the mesmerizing sea life by walking on the sea floor, surrounded by a school of fish and countless corals. While you’re at it, you can also feed the fish by hand!

3. Underwater scuba diving

If you are looking for a classic water sport with a new twist, underwater scuba diving is definitely one of the best choices for you! This is probably the most unique way of exploring the ocean floors, so get ready to hop on that underwater scooter! These scooters can go up to speeds of 2km/hour and access depths of 20 meters, making them the perfect choice for your next adventure!

4. Scuba diving and freediving

Speaking of the classics, scuba diving is definitely a must while you are staying in Bali! Once you sign up for your dive instructor course, witness the colorful versatile sea life in all its glory. You could also go for the original way of diving, by simply holding your breath of course! Doesn’t get much better than freediving, does it?

5. Wakeboarding

Now, not all of us can be professional surfers, can we? But luckily for us, we don’t have to be extremely fit in order to take up wakeboarding! Simply put, wakeboarding is like skiing on a surfboard and all you’ll need for this incredible water sport is a helmet, a life jacket, and some balance while you’re on the board!


6. Kite-surfing

On the other hand, if you were looking for an adventure that will combine your love of water and your love of the heights, kite-surfing is the way to go. Using a large steerable kite, you will be able to witness the majestic sea from a whole different perspective, so make sure to give it a go!

7. Subwinging

For those of us who would like to get a grasp of the ocean’s astounding beauty through, let’s say dolphins’ eyes, Subwing is a great choice. All you have to do is hold onto a carbon-fiber wing dragged by a speedboat, and enjoy your surroundings!

8. Rafting

Not all water sports have to include the ocean, so rafting is a great choice if you are looking to explore the Ayung and Telaga Rivers’ wild rapids while having the time of your life! This experience also allows you to see the astounding green jungles firsthand.

Travel in Bali

As you can see, there is a lot to choose from when picking out the perfect water sport to try out while visiting Bali. However, you can be sure that you’ll have an adventure of a lifetime whichever you choose!
