Welcome to the Water Adventure Blog for Women!

75% of the world is covered in water.  If you manage to conquer the 25% that the average human being calls their own personal stomping grounds, the chances are that you haven’t gotten around to the majority that is covered in that open blue.

Although we all love laying around it in our tiniest bikinis hoping that our recent yogurt and granola diet has been successful, I believe that there are a lot more adventures to be had in and around the Earth’s most beautiful and wet places.

Welcome to my blog Woman, Water, Wild.

If you’ve come looking for adventure on the water because you’ve recently discovered the kayak life or the boat life or the swim life, you’ve come to the right place.  If you’ve stumbled upon this blog in search of off-land, on-water adventure, this is the place to be.

This blog will provide women with the guidelines, tips and humor that they will need to pursue a recreational or adventurous life on the water.  Because of location, the water explored in this blog will be mainly those reflecting the beautiful sunshine of Florida but the helpful hints reach out to any web-footed female.

Feel free to cruise around.  There are snorkeling, fishing, boating, kayaking, wakeboarding and many more H2O adventures out there and Woman, Water, Wild is here to help you make a splash!
