Offering the promise of limitless horizons and a hint of the unknown, we as travellers are almost hypnotically drawn to the water. And with over 70% of the Earth covered in the stuff, it’s not surprising that so many of the stories in previous issues of Silkwinds and SilverKris have celebrated water-based adventures.
From surfing in the Maldives and paddle boarding in Lombok to freediving in Cebu and snorkelling among the corals of the Great Barrier Reef, we have travelled the planet in search of cerulean waters, golden sands and astonishing marine life. The results are both fascinating and stunningly beautiful as you can see from these spectacular images highlighting our favourite ocean stories. What are you waiting for? Dive in.
