Ocean adventures: 6 of our favourite

Somewhere for the kids to swim on a family holiday can be the deal breaker when seeking out that all-important adventure. Luckily, we've scoped out the most unique of places to take a dip in, and these waters are sure to keep the kids occupied for hours. 

Finding Dory at Monterey Bay, USA

Finding Dory is set to hit the big screens this week, so what would your kids say if you could relive the movie in the same ocean? Head to San Diego’s Monterey Bay, the inspiration to Pixar’s Finding Dory, and hit the beach. The Lake is home to plenty of interesting fish, has warm temperatures and calm waters. The perfect fit for families.

Snorkel between the Earth’s plates at Silfra Fissure, Iceland

Nothing brings science to life quite like discovering the shift of Earth’s two tectonic plates, by swimming directly between two of them. Taking education to the next level, kids will be fascinated by the marine life of the Silfra Fissure plus the water visibility is over 100 metres!

Discover the underwater paradise at Kornati National Park, Croatia

With 89 islands, islets and reefs around Kornati the archipelago is a stunning place to spend the day. With ample opportunities to snorkel and swim amongst the hundreds of colourful fish and marine life, the national park is often mentioned as a ‘nautical paradise’, and the islands really live up to their reputation.

Look at for sea turtles in the Indian Ocean, Tanzania

This is a stand out experience for us. Not only is Sadaani National Park one of the most beautiful and diverse in Africa, with wild savannas and pristine beaches, but the water is just as interesting as the land. With wild open ocean, warm water that runs into mangroves and plenty of friendly wildlife, the safari opportunities continue well into the waves.

Swim with the sea lions in the Galapagos, Ecuador

The Galapagos Islands are a world of their own: with volcanic-like landscapes, pristine oceans, unique wildlife and other-worldly creatures, they’re a must for kids to learn about Darwin and the great histories the islands play host to. It’s likely you’ll even spot a sea turtle or white tipped reef shark (they don’t bite!).

Swim with wild dolphins in the Azores

Although at first the prospect of wild sea creatures may seem a little daunting, dolphins are one of the most intelligent and tuned-in animals in the ocean. Atlantic, bottlenose, spotted and Risso’s all frolic in the Atlantic Ocean and some days you’ll catch a glimpse of all five species. Head out early on a specialist boat to find the best spot before diving in with your new friends.
