Whether you’re a trained deep-sea diver or a recreational snorkeling enthusiast, here are great watery choices for a vacation getaway:

At The Ritz-Carlton, Koh Samui in Thailand, injured fish rescued by area fishermen populate the property’s Swim Reef. Along with the recuperating fish, the water includes cat sharks, sea cucumbers and sea anemones. The property’s Swim Reef Specialist guides guests in holding sea cucumbers, feeding the sea life and facilitating a 30-minute swim reef experience.

Robin Pope Safaris’ Pumulani Beach Lodge in the hills above Lake Malawi in the country of Malawi offers some of the most renowned freshwater diving on the planet. The lake’s deep water — dubbed the “lake of the stars” by explorer David Livingstone — covers boat wrecks and rock canyons, while activities include night dives, waterskiing, sailing, kayaking and sunset cruises in the lodge’s hand-built dhow.

Embark on a seven-night cruise to the Galapagos Islands with Quasar Expeditions and sail aboard one of two renovated yachts: the M/V Evolution or the M/Y Grace. The Grace has a fun history: It was a wedding gift from Aristotle Onassis to Prince Rainer and Princess Grace Kelly of Monaco. In the water, marvel at species, including Rainbow Basslet, Red-lipped Batfish, Bloody Frogfish, Pacific Seahorse and Galapagos Clingfish, or watch for schools of barracudas, bonitos, eagle rays and hammerheads.
