Cliff jumping is an activity for those who like to live on the edge—literally. Some people would be hesitant to jump into the ocean, but if you’re an adrenaline seeker this one’s for you! No matter how high your jump is, safety must always come first. Scope out where you will be jumping and if the conditions are safe. Never jump if you are not comfortable. Start with small jumps and work your way up. Your adrenaline will be pumping and you’ll be soaring through the air in no time.

Scuba Diving

Once you’re certified and get your own scuba gear, you can put your curiosity at ease and go explore the deep blue sea.
