@toeuropewithkid: Rhine River cruise in Germany @indohoy: I’d have to say sailing in the Togian Island, Indonesia. It’s awesome to come into a mini archipelago like that
@kitwhelan: Definitely sailing around the Whitsunday Islands. Beautiful beaches,even more beautiful reefs @BestofOrlando: Cruising through the Caribbean is beautiful. The color of the water is just mesmerizing @xplore724: Going up the Amazon in Brazil on local ferries, sleeping in a hammock @EcoWiseTravel: Yangzte River Cruise, The Three Gorges were just stunning @ellyoracle: Dug out canoe, steered by man who made it, across endangered mangrove creek, to see wild flamingoes, east Kenya @enchantetravel: For something local, the ferry ride crossing Hong Kong Island to Kowloon is pretty special
|Amazing view of the Hong Kong skyline on board the Star Ferry|
@musicandmarkets What’s the most unique form of water transport you’ve been on?

@htglobe: On the back of a dolphin
@AngelFCast: A small raft rowed by a monk to get me across Lake Snagov to visit the monastery where Vlad the Impaler is buried @BAbackpacker: I loved the boat buses in Venice. So strange waiting for a boat bus instead of a bus bus @plusjordi: Banana boats are really odd – great fun though
@lizcleere: A 1960’s gin palace formerly owned by Onassis. Crewed her from Turkey to Malta 6 years ago

@gr8ful4dmb: Have to say the amazing sunsets as their colors reflect off the water
@kymri: The view landing by seaplane in Victoria Harbor is pretty cool
@littlegingerkid: Quiet beach late at night, with a camp fire next to me reflecting in the lapping waves
@Emma_Sparks: Underwater – with awesome visibility, like in OZ and Thailand. Wow. Whole new perspective @AngelFCast: Sunrise in Venice from a vaporetto on the Grand Canal after a great night of partying
@katyabroad: I love the feeling when you stand on a beach looking out on an ocean and all you can see is sea and sky, especially at sunset
@mellyboo: Sunset on the Okavango Delta from the comfort of a mokoro watching the hippos
@xplore724: White sand beach, palm trees, clear turquoise waters, coral reefs, a hammock–Paradise @Adam_Chiasson: View of the Bosphorus at night from one of the funky rooftop bars in Istanbul
|The Bosphorus view from MY favorite Istanbul rooftop bar|
Q4 via Robyn Boswell What’s the best water-based adventure you’ve had?
@SEA_Backpacker: Putting my head underwear in snorkel and mask for the very first time in Thailand – nothing could prepare me for the WOW
@traveldudes: Swimming with crocs at the Gibb River road in Northern Australia @AnnaHeimbichner: Kloofing in South Africa! Basically like a hike combined with cliff jumping off waterfalls, and you hike between falls
@LAbackpackrChik: Lvoved the Nha Trang floating bar in Vietnam. I felt like the luckiest girl in the world, so free surrounded by mindblowing beauty @travels4couples: Whale watching with humpbacks swimming right beside the catamaran
@SaExperienceIt: River Rafting on the Orange River was great fun @dealchecker: Swimming with sharks was such great experience. Must admit, it was nerve racking at first but after awhile it was fantastic @anuragamuffin: White-water rafting down Nepal’s steepest river Bhote Koshi! Insane
@hilaryetravels What’s your favorite way to travel on the water?
@MyDestination: Swim / Kayak / Sail. Ways that don’t hurt the environment they’re using @GQtrippin: Jetskis! Favorite way to travel on water
@LaurenKRayner: Inflatable boat down a peaceful river – the Cesky Krumlov way
@melbtravel: On a yacht being served wine by a sexy man @Em30b430: Diving for sure. A whole new world plus the added bonus of no seasickness @roadtoanywhere: A ferry/boat that has lots of room to lay outside in the sun, but also an indoor area with aircon @waegook_tom: Ferries that are used as public transport in cities! Think Sydney and Istanbul. A nice alternative to the bus @HTGlobe: On one of the fine looking yachts I spotted in Turkey. You know, the one that comes with a helicopter @Recruitment2Rio: Has to be sailing, letting the wind take you
