The grill master. The man who knows what to say and just how to say it. The guy who always has your back. Dad. You can always treat the man of the hour to a golf getaway, but why not take him on the adventure of a lifetime with a thrilling excursion? Check out a few of our favorites below.
Deep sea fishing in Cancun
The biggest personality in your life deserves the biggest catch. And Amstar has you covered to make it happen. The tour begins at spectacular Maroma Beach, and from there you’ll head out into the beautiful blue waters of Maroma Bay. We’d say cross your fingers for the “big one,” but the seasonal (and plentiful) barracuda, small shark, blue marlin, sailfish, mahi-mahi and tuna that make the bay home always means you’re bound to hook something epic.
What’s included: Bait, equipment, bottled water, soft drinks, and beer on board. Snacks, bottled water, and soft drinks at the end of the tour.
River tubing in Montego Bay
Maybe dad just wants a little relaxation. You know, to kick back and relax for once. So why not make it as scenic as can be. Lounge with a Chukka Jungle River Tubing Tour by Jamaica Tours Limited. There’s no better way to take in Jamaica’s stunning natural beauty, and if dad prefers a little thrill, don’t worry. There’s a (not too crazy) section of rapids that will give him a ride to remember.
What’s included: Hotel pick-up and drop-off, safety briefing, jungle river tubing tour and complimentary rum punch.
Snorkeling in Punta Cana
This isn’t your average snorkeling tour. Because dad’s not your average guy, right? During the Bavaro Splash Double Driver & Rider by IslandSun Experience excursion, Dad will be the captain of your very own speedboat as you cruise along the palm-studded coast soaking in the sun and tropical scenery. At Cabeza de Toro, world-famous for being the scene of international fishing tournaments, you can take the dive and mingle with the enchanting sea life.
What’s included: Hotel pick-up and drop-off, speedboat ride for two, professional guides, non-alcoholic beverages, snorkeling equipment and life jackets.
Zip lining in Los Cabos
This one’s for all the rad dads out there. Treat him to some high-speed fun with the X-Treme Canyon Canopy Ride where you’ll zoom across canyons, zip by beautiful rock faces and fly down the Tarzan Swing—which is pretty much 1,800 feet of straight up adrenaline. And you’ll be in good hands. This company is certified by the ACCT (Association of Challenging Course Technology).
What’s included: Professional gear and instructions, drinking water, zip-lines, rappel, and multiple zip-line courses.
Sayulita tour in Puerto Vallarta
Maybe pops is known for his undeniably laid-back vibe. He’s always cool, and maybe paints in his spare time. Surfing? He’s always had a knack for it. So, we think he’s going to a love a little day trip to the sunny little beach town of Sayulita. With a Sayulita Escape by IslandSun Experience, you’ll cruise to the eclectic, artsy town in exhilarating off-road vehicles. From there, you can check out the surf, boutique shopping and take in the hippy-chic vibe. Hang loose.
What’s included: UTV for up to 4 persons, light snack, bottled water, and helmet.
