Favorite place to cruise

Whether you're into powered boats or sailing (or any other water craft), I'm wondering where is your absolutely favorite place to cruise?

I was actually going to choose a place I like to sail, but I had to change my answer...I have to say, mine has got to be kayaking in Mosquito Bay in Vieques, PR. It's a beautiful paddle, and if you take glass bottom kayaks it's an absolutely breathtaking and spiritual experience to see the bioluminescents.

Re: Favorite place to cruise

That's a beautiful picture. I used to live in PR and go down to Boqueron on the southwest coast and see the same. I never had a picture of it and yours made me smile.

Favorite cruising area? We have moved to the Pacific Northwest and it is heart stoppingly beautiful. Can't wait to go north, get away from crowds, see glaciers, fjords, whales, etc.

Again, really nice picture.

The PNW is beautiful. Loved it.

But French Polynesia has my heart!

Haven't been everywhere so I'm still doing research but so far Sea of Cortez was best for me.
