Guam is a small island in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean. This means everywhere you look there is water. Who doesn’t enjoy water? For some reason, the beach always lets out your fun side. If you love adventure and have the money to spare, jet skiing and other water sports in Guam are definitely worth trying.
Guam will mesmerize you with its sparkling white beaches and inviting warm waters. After swimming, snorkeling and diving for hours, you might want to try something more challenging with the water. You definitely have to try jet skiing, if you haven’t tried it already.
Jet skiing is one of the most expensive yet sought after water sports in major tropical islands around the world. In Guam, there are a number of companies that rent out jet skis and offer a quick crash course in jet skiing. If you have not jet-skied before, you should take the course, not because it is a difficult thing to learn but simply because the course can help you maximize your enjoyment and make the most of your time and money. You will learn when to sit down on your jet ski and relax, and when to stand up and rev the motor. Once trained, you will see how safe jet-skiing really is. Nonetheless, you should be careful not just for yourself, but also for other people, especially those who are swimming in the water and could potentially get run over.
Cocos Island is very popular for its jet-ski rentals. Cocos Island is an uninhabited island off the southern coast of Guam. Service boats regularly take people in and out of Cocos Island, which only shows how popular this resort is. The place is also known for scuba diving, snorkeling, dolphin watching, sea-walking, parasailing, windsurfing and kayaking.
There is definitely a lot more water activities to try and enjoy other than jet skiing. Guam is also popular for deep sea fishing. Guam is not located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and near Marianas Trench for nothing. It offers the best open sea fishing in the world. In fact, the record blue marlin catch happened here. The Pacific Ocean is teeming with blue marlins, sailfish, yellow fins, ship-jacks, and more, and no other country is closer to these beautiful sea creatures than Guam. A popular charter boat you may consider is the Lucky Strike Guam Sport Fishing Charter.
Guam is also known for scuba diving. Divers and ocean enthusiasts visit the many dive sites and wreck sites off the Guam coastline. History will tell you that Guam and the Pacific was the setting for many fierce maritime wars. A number of Spanish galleons, Japanese war ships, and American vessels have sunk nearby. Cocos Island is once again a leading venue for a very satisfying dive. Guam waters are exceptionally clear. One needs only to snorkel on shallow waters and already get to enjoy watching colorful fishes swimming in and out equally colorful corals.
There is a lot more to enjoy in this Pacific Island. Believe it or not, jet skiing and other water sports in Guam are just the beginning of your fun vacation. Next comes the amazing people and their exciting culture and festivities.
