The Cage of Death
First on our list of Top 7 Destinations for Thrill Seekers would be the Cage of Death in Australia’s Crocosaurus Cove. You might be thinking that it’s may not be as deadly as it sounds, but you might want to think again. The Cage of Death gives thrill seekers the opportunity to go face-to-face with one of the world’s deadliest predators. Guests are lowered into a crocodile enclosure where they’ll stay for 20 minutes while being surrounded by 800-pound crocodiles.
Swimming with Great white sharks
If you’re one of those travelers who love underwater activities, then you’ve probably heard about swimming with the Dolphins which is quite popular in many ocean parks. If the thrill in that is not enough for you, we suggest that you try out Swimming with the great white sharks in South Africa. At Marine Dynamics, marine biologists take their guests to sharks infested waters where they’ll stay for two hours. The guests will be submerged in the waters while inside a cage as they face one of the largest and deadliest predators in the World.
This may not sound as scary as the first two adventures on our list, but don’t let the name fool you, since Zapcat Powerboating is not as safe as it sounds. Adventurers will ride on a boat that is specially designed to be light and quick. These boats are well-known for reaching unbelievable speeds that every thrill seeker would definitely enjoy.
Whitewater Rafting (Tatshenshini Rivers)
The last water activity on our list is whitewater rafting. Compared to other activities mentioned above, this one will need some classes to prepare the traveler to be able to safely navigate the Tatshenshini Rivers of Alaska. Navigating through the river won’t be easy and adventures should expect to see icebergs, glaciers and a variety of wildlife throughout the course.
