With so much of our blue planet covered in water, it's bound to make for some epic vacations. Whether you take the plunge or just enjoy the view, Mother Nature offers wondrous diversions for all travelers that are drawn to the wet stuff—from the magnificent waterfalls in Guyana and Zimbabwe to the beautiful lagoon in Bora Bora, and from ice-cold Norwegian fjords to soul-soothing beaches and island getaways. Here are our favorite ways to experience Earth's aquatic splendors. Head out in a boat, dive in with an oxygen tank, and know that you’ll return home rejuvenated, restored—and ready to plan your next water adventure.
