Swimming offers you more of a refreshing round in water, snorkeling and diving offer you a glimpse of the colourful magical marine world in varying degree. There is surfing where you need to catch a good wave and then ride down the face of it while staying just ahead of its breaking part. In sharp contrast are rowing and kayaking wherein you just need to enjoy the beauty of the water and the feeling on being in midst of it while moving it with the help of oars or kayaks.
