The idea behind AquaAdventure Tours
Growing up in northern New York State and just an hour from Canada, my parents encouraged my siblings and I to get outdoors whenever possible and whatever the weather. Their encouragement was usually pretty direct. But occasionally they would get a little tricky, like Dad removing the fuse for the TV on Saturday mornings. He’d claim the “boob-tube” overheated, tell us kids to “get outdoors”, and say we’d have more fun out there anyway. Mom played right along, and outside we went!
Time spent outside is one of the greatest gifts that we can share with others. In a world full of distractions, being outdoors helps us relax, focus and sharpen our senses. Time spent outside helps keep us open to new experiences and makes old experiences new again.
Studies show that over the last 25 years, the amount of time people spend outdoors has declined tremendously and gets smaller each year. Demanding schedules, less free time, more structured playtime, growing fears of the outdoors, and a HUGE increase electronics for indoor entertainment are all part of this phenomenon.
Professionals whose jobs help make outdoor fun accessible are concerned that lifestyle changes are causing people to lose interest in having fun outside. If people no longer see the value in being outdoors, this could quickly lead to the loss of special, irreplaceable places.
AquaAdventure Tours was formed with these concerns in mind. Getting people outside helps develop respect for the habitats in which we all live and play. By offering fun and exciting opportunities to safely explore, we hope to help people build and strengthen their own connections to the wonderful world outdoors!
