Where to Go For Watersports in America

The country's top destinations to swim, surf, and scuba dive

SURF: Lost Coast, California

You may think of swaying palms and warm sand when it comes to top surfing spots, but the pros know that California’s best breaks lie north of Mendocino near the village of Shelter Cove.

SCUBA: Lake Huron, Michigan

The Great Lakes’ freshwater makes for some of the clearest diving in North America, with roughly 200 Industrial Era wrecks to explore. Float over to Fathom Five National Marine Park, on the Canadian shore, for the region’s best sites.


The Aloha State practically invented the sport, and Hawaii’s idyllic isle offers perfect breezes for top-notch kiters, and plenty of opportunities for newbies to cut their teeth.

KAYAK: The Keys, Florida

Key Largo’s John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is a haven for kayakers and an easy day away from Miami. Superstars can follow the state’s designated overseas paddling trail all the way down to Key West (figure nine days)
