Kayaks, Kayakers and Kayaking

Kayaking can be recreational as well as adventuresome. Kayakers are serious about
their sport. Kayaks give them an opportunity to see the world from a different
perspective and, if they so desire, to pit themselves and the kayak against Mother
Nature's wildest rivers and rapids.

Basic Kayak Terms

Basic kayak terms include bow, bilge pump, bulkhead, chine, demo boat, dry bag
and stern. The bow is the front of the kayak. A bilge pump is a hand pump used to
remove large amounts of water from the inside of the kayak.
The bulkhead is a vertical partition inside the kayak. It's usually made of foam. It
serves two purposes. It reinforces the hull and aids flotation. The chine are the edges
of the kayak. The term refers to changes in angle.
A demo boat is a demonstration boat dealers use to allow kayak drivers to test drive
specific models or styles. The dry bag is a waterproof bag used to keep items dry.
The bag is available in a variety of sizes for large or small items. The stern is the
back of the kayak.

Basic Kayak Equipment

Basic kayak equipment includes kayak, paddle, life jacket or PFD, helmet and spray
skirt.
Kayakers choose a kayak to fit the type of kayaking they plan to do. There are
different types of kayaks for recreational kayaking, sea kayaking, and rocky river or
creek kayaking. The kayakers size will affect kayak size.
Kayaking paddles come in multiple styles. Kayaker size and paddling style play a
part in determining which type of paddle will be used.

Personal flotation devices or life jackets are required by law on most bodies of water.
The Type III PFDs are legal for kayaking. Proper fit is vital.

Kayakers can choose helmets that reflect their style and personal tastes if they wish.
Helmets are now available in a wide variety of colors and designs. In addition to the
basic kayaking style helmet, there are helmets which include protection for the face.
These resemble football helmets and are used when extra protection is required.

Spray skirts are used to keep the wearer dryer and to keep water out of the kayak. A
properly fitted spray skirt seals the cockpit. Spray skirt style varies according to kayak
style. The best spray skirt is made of neoprene. Sea kayaking spray skirts often
contain both neoprene and nylon. Nylon spray skirts are often used in recreational
kayaking.

Kayak Trails

There are kayak trails mapped out on many United States rivers and other
waterways. Kayakers can choose short or long rides, wild or calm rides. Some of the
National Forests feature kayak trails.

Kayak Tours

Kayaking is a way to see the United States and even the world with a different
perspective. Kayak tours abound all
globally. Kayakers can paddle through the area in Hawaii where Jurassic Park was
filmed. They can see killer whales up close while sea kayaking in Alaska. Brave
kayakers can shoot the rapids all around the world.

Kayaking is here to stay. Kayaks give Kayakers a chance to go places that can't be
accessed any other way. They allow kayakers to pit themselves against nature, to
calmly paddle and enjoy nature and to renew an acquaintance with the world without
the intrusion of technology.

Beginner's Guide to Basic Kayaking Equipment

There isn't a lot of equipment required for kayaking. A kayak and paddle, life jacket,
helmet and spray skirt are the recommend basics.

Kayaks for surfing and doing tricks are called playboats. Kayaks for rocky rivers are
called creek boats. Traditional river kayaks offer a quick ride and stability. Most
kayaking beginners start with the traditional river kayak.
One kayak does not fit all. The size and shape of the kayak is based on the user's
height, weight, and the type of water the kayak will be used in. Kayak dealers usually
stock demo or demonstration kayaks available for test boating. This allows kayakers
to try before they buy.

Used kayaks cost considerably less than new. Good used kayaks can often be found
in the classifieds, online auctions and similar venues.

Finding the right paddle involves getting the length, weight, material and blade shape
into consideration, along with the user's height, torso size and paddling style. Tall
people, those with long torsos and paddlers who like a slow ride will require longer
paddles. Shorter people or those with short torsos and paddlers who like to paddle
fast and get the job done will benefit from shorter paddles.

Kayaking paddle materials include wood, fiberglass, carbon fiber and aluminum
shafts with plastic blades. The aluminum shaft paddles are a good choice for
beginners.
Many kayakers are already into other water sports and own a life jacket (also known
as personal flotation device). These can be purchased at many discount stores,
sporting goods stores and boating equipment stores in addition to online stores and
auctions.

Life jackets, also known as personal flotation devices (PFD) are required by law.
Choose a PFD rated for the type of kayaking involved. Type III PFD's tend to be the
most comfortable for paddling.
Kayaking helmets should be good quality and fit well. Like other sporting gear,
helmets have evolved and now are as much about fashion as function. Users can
shop for functional, protective head gear or for functional and fashionable helmets in
a wide variety of designs, colors and styles.

Spray skirts are used to seal the cockpit during kayaking and keep water out of the
inside of the kayak and keep the kayaker dry. Different types of kayaking require
different skirt styles. Whitewater spray skirts are usually made of neoprene. Touring
and recreational spray skirts are often made of nylon. Sea kayaking skirt styles may
include both neoprene and nylon.

All kayaking spray skirts feature a grab loop. This loop allows the boater to break the
seal quickly if necessary. Skirt
designs include cords for boat attachment, pockets, and adjustable suspenders and
waistbands.
Since the spray skirt fits around the wearer's waist, waist circumference is the
general standard of sizing. Kayak cockpit size may also apply.

Optional kayaking gear includes a dry bag, a dry top and a spray jacket. The small
dry bag is good for protecting and storing snacks and other small items. A dry top is a
water proof jacket good for cold water paddling. Spray jackets are waterproof and
available in long or short sleeve styles.
Kayaking gives boaters an opportunity to explore waterways for fun and for relaxation.
The size and light weight of kayaks make maneuvering them easy for individuals.
Kayaking doesn't require a lot of equipment and doesn't have to be expensive. Most
beginners can quickly master the basics but kayaking is a continual learning
experience.

Beginner's Guide to Whitewater Kayaking Gear

Whitewater kayaking is the sport of paddling on moving bodies of water, typically
rivers. The experience can range from a fun float trips to adrenalin charged
challenges. Whitewater kayaking requires the same basic gear used by all kayakers.
Gear specifics differ due to conditions and other variables involved in whitewater
kayaking.

Kayaks built for whitewater kayaking, often called playboats, are usually made of
durable and flexible plastic. Lengths vary from around 6 feet to as long as 12 feet,
maybe longer. Newer designs tend to run around 6 feet to 7 feet in length. Personal
kayak size and shape are determined by the user's height, weight, type of water the
kayak will be used in and primary kayak use.

Whitewater kayaks for fun float trips do not need the features that kayaks used on
dangerous river rapids must possess. New kayaks can cost from around $600 to
thousands of dollars.

Paddles for whitewater kayaking are usually around 6 feet long. Longer paddles are
best for fun whitewater trips on creeks or rivers while shorter paddles work better
where quick movement is required.

Playboaters can get maximum power from bigger blades while medium blades are
fine for creeks and general rivers. Spoon shaped paddles provide power for
playboating. Wing blades were designed to get maximum power and require a
special paddling technique.

Whitewater kayaking paddles are available in a variety of materials including fiber
composites, fiberglass, carbon, plastic, wood and laminated wood. Each material has
its own strengths and weaknesses. Boater size and paddling style will affect choice
of paddle.

Type III Personal floatation devices (PFDs) include models that are specifically for
kayaking. The best PFD is one that can be adjusted to fit snugly whether the user is
wearing a tee shirt or a wet suit.
Many experienced whitewater kayakers suggest buying the best whitewater kayaking
helmet that the budget allows. Function and protection are important considerations,
even before style. For serious whitewater kayaking, there are helmets that look
almost like those used in football. They feature face guards and offer more coverage
and protection that standard kayaking helmets.
Resistant Neoprene is the best whitewater kayaking spray skirt material. UV rays,
abrasions and stretching will affect the wear and lifespan of the spray skirt. Spray
skirts must be easy to remove quickly in case of emergency.

Preparing for Your Kayaking Trip - The Basics

While kayaking has quickly become a popular choice of water activity and recreation,
it's by far one of the oldest forms of transportation. People have been traveling by
kayak for centuries, mainly because it was once the only method of water
transportation. But over time, it evolved from a necessity to a recreational sport,
leading to the development of kayaking gear and accessories. If you are planning to
participate in a kayaking adventure for the first time, you may be unsure of what you
will need. Here are a few tips for finding the best kayaking equipment.

Obviously, you will need a kayak. If you are going through a kayaking tour company,
chances are you will have the opportunity to rent a kayak as part of your package
price. But if you're going independently, or with friends and family, you'll need your
own kayak. Kayaks come in many different sizes, and you need to determine how
many people will be traveling with you. Even if you're planning to kayak alone,
consider purchasing one with two or more seats. This way you will have room for
others on future trips and you can still distribute the weight by using heavier items for
leverage if you want to paddle alone. Speaking of paddles, you will need those too.
Choosing a paddle takes time and there are factors to consider when looking for
paddles. First of all, be sure the paddle fits the specific type of paddling you have in
mind. For example, if you plan to paddle through white water, you will need a paddle
with a stronger and thicker blade. You also need to make sure the paddle fits your
body strength and height, as well as the height and width of your kayak.

If you have a smaller frame, pay attention to the shaft's diameter. Often too large a
diameter can cause wrist or shoulder injuries to a small person. You should visit a
kayak outfitter in person for paddles, and ask for assistance on properly measuring
your body type for a paddle.

Although it's often overlooked, kayak clothing is vital to the safety of your kayaking
trip. Unexpected events easily happen even in the most tranquil waters. You never
know when your kayak could flip, or when you'll be encountered by a random splash
of water. Therefore, it's important that you seek quick-drying clothes when obtaining
your kayaking equipment. Be sure to find loose fitting shorts, tops, and jackets.
Synthetic material is often recommended for kayaking. Avoid wearing cotton
garments, and consider wearing a swimsuit underneath your clothes. Cotton stays
wet and you are likely to be very uncomfortable during the remainder of your trip. If
you plan to kayak in the winter month, you may want to purchase a synthetic
kayaking suit to wear over your clothes. This will keep you dry as well as prevent
hypothermia.

Don't forget to include the basics, such as lifejackets, helmets, and first aid kits.
Safety should always remain your top priority on your kayaking excursion and you
never know when these items will come in handy.

The Environmental Impacts of Kayaking - Is it Dangerous?

Kayaking is an activity enjoyed by many people of all ages. It requires little or no
experience and nearly anyone of any skill level can participate. It's most popular as a
summertime sport, but is also a great activity during the winter. Kayaking also seems
relatively friendly to the environment; more so than speed boating or water skiing.
Because a kayak doesn't create large or frequent waves, require fuel, or disperse
hazards into the air, it is indeed a fairly safe activity for humans and wildlife alike.

Kayaking on freshwater lakes and streams creates little turbulence and therefore,
does not disturb fish or other aquatic life. Actually, the gentle paddling and movement
of the kayak helps to bring kelp and seaweed to the surface, making for convenient
snacking to the fish. However, there is a downside to kicking up an all-you-can-buffet
for your fishy friends. In addition to bringing food to the surface, kayaking also stirs
up litter that's been lurking beneath the waters. Most fish will not eat the trash that
rises to the top, but other aquatic animals will mistake it for food. This could cause
the animals to choke on the indigestible litter, leading to death. As hazardous as this
sounds, it isn't very likely for such an event to take place. Most litter in lakes and
streams is found along the shoreline and settles in the sand and dirt, and isn't likely
to drift away to the main body of water.

Unlike boats operated by motor and fuel, kayaks pose little or no harm to the fish
swimming beneath. Kayaks don't move at a rapid pace, and the fish swimming below
have ample time to move out of the boat's way. And because kayaks do not have a
motor, fish have no risk of getting caught underneath the boat.

One potential hazard that results from kayaking is human waste. This depends solely
on where you plan to kayak, and if there are resources available (such as campsites)
along the shoreline. When there are no facilities in sight, you're paddling in the
middle of a lake, and nature calls, then often you are given no choice but to expel
your waste in the middle of the water. While human waste is considered
biodegradable, it can be harmful when ingested by fish. The only preventative
measure is to avoid using the water as a restroom, but again, this can't always be
helped. Some public lakes and streams have taken steps to preserve the quality of
the water by requiring permits for kayaking. This won't eliminate a human waste
problem, but does help regulate entry into the lake and prevent it from becoming
overcrowded.

An important factor to remember when kayaking is that you are a guest in someone
else's home. You may not be greeted by anyone or be able to kick up your feet and
watch TV, but the water is home to many aquatic animals and wildlife. Just as you
would not throw trash on the floor or destroy the home of another, you shouldn't do it
outdoors either. Keep all trash with you in your kayak and properly dispose of it after
you return to shore. Don't dump anything in the water, and try to avoid expelling
human waste if at all possible. By doing your part, you will help keep kayaking a safe
and enjoyable activity for yourself and the environment.

Canoeing and Kayaking - The Essentials

As summer approaches, we often look for activities to do out on the water. Two of the
most popular summertime activities are canoeing and kayaking, mainly because they
are safe and easily done by anyone of any age, skill level, or ability. These water
sports are very relaxing and provide excellent opportunities for fun in the sun. But if
you've never set sail for the waters before, you may not know where to begin to plan
your canoeing and kayaking adventure. Here's some helpful advice to help you sort
out the details and get out on the water!

There is essentially little or no difference between canoeing and kayaking. Both offer
a calming ride on the lake or streams and both are physically undemanding. The best
approach to experiencing the excitement of canoeing and kayaking is to scout out
guided tours. Unless you plan to visit the lake several times, there is no need to
purchase your own canoeing and kayaking equipment. This can rack up quite a large
bill, as canoes generally run $800 or higher, and that's not including other equipment
needed such as paddles and clothing. You can look for canoeing and kayaking tours
locally or in other parts of the country, depending on your desire to travel. Below is a
list of popular locations in the United States for canoeing and kayaking.

1. Medford, Oregon - This is home to Crater Lake National Park and the Rogue River,
which is known to be home to some of the best outdoor activities in the United States.
The river is Class II-IV rapids, which require little or no experience to enjoy canoeing
and kayaking.

2. Haines, Alaska - This is an ideal location for ocean kayaking surrounding Glacier
Bay National Park. Here, you have the opportunity to spot bears, manatee, and other
arctic wildlife along Alaska's banks. No experience is required to participate in the
guided tours.

3. Miami - Dade County, Florida - An excellent location to experience fun in the sun
through canoeing and kayaking, while having the opportunity to snorkel or scuba dive.
Coral Gables provides a chance to explore magical sea caves and view underwater
aquatic life. Several tour companies are in the area with packages starting as low as
$40 per person, $30 per child.

4. San Diego, California - Explore the La Jolla Sea Caves for a glimpse of a true
marine paradise. Catch views of sea lions, whales, and occasionally dolphins. No
experience is necessary and typical guided tours are two hours long.

Now that you have a few suggestions of where to go, you may be wondering what to
bring for your canoeing and kayaking adventure. Be sure to pack quick-drying clothes,
such as synthetic shorts, tops, and jackets. Even kayaking in the summertime can
lead to unexpected emergencies, and you need to have water-resistant clothes
available. Make sure to bring sunglasses, hats, and sunscreen, as the sun is much
stronger when reflecting off the water. Pack a couple water bottles and small snacks
in case you or a member of your family need a quick energy boost, and always bring
along a first aid kit containing instant cold packs, band-aids, gauze, and other small
items just in case an emergency arises.

Alaska Kayaking Destinations Offer Something for Everyone

Kayaking Alaska gives boaters an opportunity to enjoy relaxing wilderness scenery or
to test their limits in the frozen wilderness. Alaska is home to the nation's largest
national park. Both the park and the state have much to offer beginning and
experienced kayakers. Tours and rental kayaks are available for kayak experiences
throughout the state.

Le Conte Glacier Bay

Le Conte Glacier Bay is a 12 mile fjord carved out of the mountain range by glaciers.
Le Conte Glacier is the southernmost tidewater glacier in North America. It is an
active glacier, fracturing and calving constantly, filling the bay with thousands of
icebergs.

Kayak day trips through the bay give boaters a glimpse of lush forests, ancient, sheer
rock walls, thundering waterfalls and icebergs in every imaginable shape and size.
Kayaking Le Conte lets boaters see and experience the majestic and sometimes
fierce side of Alaskan nature.

Big Creek on Frederick Sound

The Kupreanof Island coastline offers miles of beaches and coves waiting to be
appreciated by sea kayakers kayaking Alaska. Marine mammals in the area include
stellar sea lions, porpoises, harbor seals and pacific humpback whales. River otters
and bald eagles also call the island home.

Tebenkof Bay

Tebenkof Bay encompasses 65,000 acres of coves, bays and small islands - a
dream destination for Alaska kayaking. The area is one of the most remote and wild
parts of southeast Alaska.
Tlingit once lived there. No humans reside there now. Black bears, wolves, and Sitka
black-tailed deer inhabit the area.

Stikine River

The Stikine River is the largest, navigable undammed watershed in North America.
The river flows more than 400 miles from head waters in British Columbia to the
Alaskan Delta.
Flat-water paddling the Stikine takes boaters through areas once used by natives
and gold-seekers. Kayakers can visit a hot spring, view the towering Cottonwood
trees of Ketili River and see salmon spawning.

Prince William Sound

Prince William Sound is said to offer some of the best kayaking in Alaska. 7,000
miles of ocean, river deltas, tidal flats and glaciers make up the Sound.

Shoup Glacier, unique because it can lay claim to not one but two tidal basins,
boasts the fastest growing Kittiwake rookery in the Sound with over 20,000 birds and
6,000 nests.

Columbia Glacier, aka the world's speediest glacier, is currently the largest glacier in
Prince William Sound and the second largest glacier in Alaska. The glacier is moving
backwards as much as 4 feet per day during the summer months.
Kayakers can take a boat to the glacier then set out via kayak to paddle among
icebergs and through bays that motorized boats cannot access. Harbor seals, sea
otters, sea lions, bears and whales are likely to be seen. Such areas are what sea
kayaking Alaska are all about.

Sitka Sound

Experienced sea kayakers will find wilderness beaches, bioluminescent waters, and
experience kayaking in ocean swells, rock gardens, sea cliffs and outer caves while
paddling Sitka.
Coastal tide pools and kelp forests abound. Eagles, otters, seals, porpoises and
whales call the area home, as do many smaller animals.

Less experienced kayakers will still find plenty of Alaskan beauty to tour.

Tongass National Forest
Tongass National Forest is America's northernmost rain forest and the largest
national forest in America. Almost 17 million acres, or over 20,625 square miles,
make up Tongass forest. Saltwater and fresh water kayaking opportunities abound in
this part of Alaska.

The Tongass is home to a wide variety of plant and animal life. Black and brown
bears, caribou, sheep and goats call the forest home. So do moose, bald eagles,
foxes, beavers and other small animals. Swans and hummingbirds are two of the
birds boaters are likely to glimpse.

The destinations mentioned here are just a few of the many Alaska kayaking
opportunities for beginning and experienced kayakers. Paddling among glaciers,
kayaking in sea caves, and seeing Alaska's wildlife in their natural habitat are some
of the reasons kayakers visit the state.

Archipelago Kayaking Destinations

Sea kayaking Archipelago destinations take boaters from the ordinary into a world
where nature's ordinary has been left untouched. Marine life, wildlife and birds thrive.
The following are just a few popular sea kayaking destinations.

Galapagos National Park

The legendary Galapagos Islands are said to be enchanted. Kayaking the area is an
enchanting experience, according to those who've been there. Iridescent turquoise
waters, lava channels, blue lagoons, deserted coves and white sand beaches are the
stuff of dreams.

The islands are usually sunny, another kayaking plus. Both shores and water teem
with life. Sea lions, iguanas, giant tortoise, blue footed booby, and the Galapagos
hawk are regular residents. The ocean houses the Pacific green sea turtle,
Galapagos penguins, rays, dolphins, whales and white sharks in addition to other
aquatic life.

Broughton Archipelago Marine Provincial Park

Broughton Archipelago is a maze of little islands off Northern Vancouver Island,
British Columbia. The area is accessed only by water. This very popular sea
kayaking destination houses a large collection of birds and wildlife.
While kayaking the Archipelago, paddlers are likely to see orcas (killer whales),
Harbour seals, Harbour porpoises, sea lions, sea otters, river otters, mink, raccoon,
black-tailed deer, black bears, Bald eagles, Harlequin ducks, cormorants and Great
blue herons.

The islands are undeveloped and the setting is primitive. Organized Archipelago
kayaking tours are available through various providers.

Sormlands Archipelago

Located just south of Stockholm, Sweden, this sea kayaking Archipelago destination
features untouched wilderness. Kayakers can tour the calm inner area, the lush
central region or the outer regions.

Mergui Archipelago
Located in the southern part of Burma, the Mergui is a collection of over 800 islands,
most of which are covered in rain forest. This kayaking Archipelago destination takes
paddlers deep into the rain forests. Kayak Jungle Rivers visit the sea gypsy village on
Nyaung Wee Island and learn about Moken culture.
Stunning beaches and a variety of wildlife and birds give the islands a lost paradise
feel. Kayaking visitors have reported seeing wild elephants, flying foxes, civet cats,
gibbons, crab-eating monkeys, wild boar, monitor lizards, turtles, armadillos and fruit
bats. Birds include sea eagles, hornbills and parrots.

Dover Archipelago

Nova Scotia's East Dover sea kayaking destination lies in a protected Atlantic harbor.
Numerous uninhabited islands invite exploration.

The preservation area lies between East Dover and Peggy's Cove. Granite boulders
dot the landscape, spread by melting ice over 20,000 years ago.

Many of the islands are accessible via sea kayak. Some islands are so rocky that it
isn't possible to beach the kayak.
Island plant life includes rare orchids, Pitcher plants, lichens, juniper, and wild
rhodendron. Osprey, loon, Blue Herons, and Bald eagles reside on the islands.
Starfish, mussels, and lobsters can occasionally be seen.

Blackfish Archipelago

This British Columbia sea kayaking destination is well known for the abundance of
whale sightings. Whales aren't the only creatures causing a stir. Dall's porpoises,
Harbour Porpoises, Harbour seals, Stellar sea lions, Pacific white-sided dolphins,
Orca whales, Minke whales, and Humpback whales are seen often.

Sea kayaking at night gives paddlers a chance to see the area lit up by
bioluminescence. Kayaking Archipelago destinations take boaters away from
everyday life and into undiscovered, uninhabited, truly natural areas.

Experience Whale Watching on Rosarito Beach

Mexico is a country known for its tropical appeal and lush vegetation. Most people
traveling to Mexico visit the popular cities of Cancun, Tijuana, and Cabo San Lucas.
These places are distinguished for having miles of white sandy beaches, crystal clear
waters, and genuine Mexican cuisine. But there's another beautiful area of Mexico
that's a well-kept secret - Rosarito Beach. Located a short distance from the shores
of Baja, California, Rosarito Beach provides an excellent opportunity to experience
nature at its finest. This stretch of private paradise is famous for sights of the grey
whale, and is most notable for great kayaking adventures.

If you take advantage of the kayaking opportunities available on Rosarito Beach,
you're sure to get up close and personal with the magnificent whales that inhibit the
area. Rosarito Beach is located just south of the pacific coast of Baja, California,
which is also known to be famous of spotting glimpses of the grey whale. You're
most likely to meet the whales during the winter months of December and January in
Rosarito Beach. This is the time of year when whales make the journey from their
home in the Arctic Ocean to take in the warmth of Rosarito Beach, and begin their
mating and birthing season. Traveling by kayak along the waters of Rosarito Beach
provides you the ultimate opportunity to take pictures, view the whales through
binoculars, and simply take in the wonders of watching these amazing creatures you
otherwise would never have the chance to see.

While you're paddling through the waters of Rosarito Beach, be sure to try your hand
at fishing. This would be very easy to accomplish if you plan to kayak through the
waters. The waters of Rosarito Beach are known to have a wide variety of fish, and
you're likely to have the most luck just off the Coronado Islands. (These tiny,
uninhibited islands are located northwest of the Rosarito Beach shoreline.) Even
people who have never caught a fish before succeed around Coronado Islands!

Along with whales and fish, you are also likely to spot sea lions, manatee, and
tropical birds along the shoreline of Rosarito Beach if you kayak during the warmer
months. Not only will you have this once-in-a-lifetime chance to see some amazing
wildlife, but you'll also be given the opportunity to experience great photography.

Most kayaking and whale watching tours in Rosarito Beach are daytime excursions,
but there are some tours that offer camping as part of an overnight addition to the
tour. If you choose an overnight tour, you will set up camp along the sandy beaches
of the tiny surrounding islands of Rosarito Beach. What better way to view a tropical
sunset? Although most kayaking tours in Rosarito Beach are not physically
challenging, you will need to be in average physical shape to participate. The waters
in this area can be a bit wavy or rough at times due to the inhibiting whales, but can
still be paddled through by the average person.

Explore the Beauty of Hawaii through Kayaking

The chance to vacation in Hawaii is a rare opportunity for some people. Nearly
everyone daydreams about feeling the sand between their toes while sipping on a
pina-colada. So, if given the chance to visit Hawaii, it's not likely one would pass it up.
With miles of sandy-white beaches and emerald-green waters, it's a place enjoyed by
people of all ages. But unlike the other 49 states of America, Hawaii isn't just one
solid mass of land that can be explored through driving; it's a chain of islands that
represent the entire state. Therefore, there's no better way to check out this amazing
land of paradise than by kayak!

There are wonderful opportunities for kayaking on nearly every island of Hawaii. No
matter what part of the state you plan to visit, a kayaking adventure is available at
every corner. If you are planning to be in Kauai, this is a prime location for some of
the best Hawaiian kayaking adventures. You can explore the waters around Hanalei
Bay and have a chance to see some breathtaking Hawaiian wildlife. Keep your eyes
peeled for the sight of bottle-nose dolphins and a beautiful assortment of aquatic
birds. Kauai is also known for its many small rivers and streams that flow into the
tropical rainforest, so take advantage of the opportunity to see some exotic animals
and plants first-hand.

The east coast of Oahu is also a great spot to experience kayaking. Oahu is known
to be one of the most relaxing places for a smooth-sailing kayaking trip. This area
offers some of the calmest and serene waters in Hawaii, giving you the chance to
take in some sightseeing while enjoying your time in the sun. Because of the many,
small islands that surround Oahu's coast, you can stop for a picnic lunch during your
kayaking adventure.

Maui is an island of Hawaii that offers several kayaking options and adventures. Maui
is home to Honolulu Bay marine preserve, where you can experience some excellent
snorkeling or scuba diving. The waters surrounding Maui are ideal for the beginning
kayaker, as conditions are usually calm and easy to paddle. However, if you are an
experienced kayaker and looking for a challenge, then explore the island of Molokai.
Here, the waters are known to be a bit rougher and offer quite a physical challenge.
Please be advised that this area should be reserved for only the experienced
kayakers.

If you've never been kayaking before, the good news is that you don't need any
experience in order to enjoy a kayaking trip in Hawaii. Kayaking is a wonderful
activity that's ideal for people of all ages and skill level. If you book a guided tour, you
will be taken to only the places with calm and quiet waters that require little physical
exertion. In fact, kayaking in Hawaii is an activity that can be enjoyed by nearly every
member of your family and is an excellent way to get in your sightseeing!

Finding the Best Kayaking in Seward, Alaska

Alaska is a beautiful state that longs to be explored. With beautiful mountain scenery,
breathtaking landscapes, and crystal clear lakes and streams, it's no wonder that
Alaska has become a top vacation spot in the United States. Alaska also provides
the perfect opportunity to experience kayaking, particularly in the area of Seward.
You are not likely to find a better place for kayaking anywhere in the world! Here you
will find everything you only dreamed of seeing as you paddle through the calm and
tranquil waters of Seward on your kayaking journey.

Lowell Point, located inside the magnificent Resurrection Bay, is a prime location in
Seward for great kayaking. Here you will find abundant wildlife and aquatic animals
along the shoreline of Caines Head State Recreation Area. You're likely to spot bald
eagles soaring overhead, sea lions perched atop the jagged rocks that peek up from
under the water, and grizzly bears as they feast on the leaping salmon inhibiting the
creeks and streams of Lowell Point.

Another common location for kayaking in Seward is Fox Island. Fox Island is said to
be one of the best sea kayaking locations in the world, and for very good reason.
Located about 14 miles from Seward, Fox Island is an area of natural beauty and
wonder. This is an area you thought you would only see on the discovery channel!
You'll find long, sandy beaches that stretch for miles, an inhibited rainforest, and
picture-perfect cliffs and coves along the shoreline. Fox Island is famous for catching
glimpses of a whale, as the peek out from beneath the water to say hello to fellow
kayakers. Falcons and puffins soar in the clear skies, setting the perfect scene for
photography.

Kenai Fjords National Park provides the ultimate kayaking experience for those
looking to view natural Alaskan glaciers or get in some whale watching. Whales are
known to live just beneath the glaciers in the tranquil water, and often jump between
the waves as if to put on a show for the kayakers. The surrounding glaciers provide
the perfect pedestal for sea otters, sea lions, beavers, and other wildlife residing in
the area. They never seem to be bothered by the passing kayaks, so be sure to snap
a picture of these magnificent creatures while you have the chance. Kenai Fjords is
the perfect location for a kayaking trip if you are only visiting Seward for a short time,
as it can easily be explored by kayak in one day.

A simple search of the internet will provide you with a list of Seward kayak tour
companies and their rates. The average cost of a one-day kayaking excursion
through Seward is around $125. Most tours will include everything you need for your
kayaking adventure, as well as lunch or dinner included in the price. Be sure to find a
tour that will accommodate your level of physical ability. While most everyone of any
skill level can participate in the kayaking tours, some of the waters of Seward tend to
be rough and harder to paddle through. Keep this mind when choosing your tour and
location.

Hawaii Kayaking Destinations

Kayaking Hawaii can be as peaceful as a solitary paddle trip along a tranquil river or
as wild as a rough ocean adventure. Popular kayaking destinations can be found on
Kauai, Maui and Molokai. Some of the most beautiful areas in Hawaii are extremely
difficult to access via land but kayaking gives paddlers immediate access to
appreciate and enjoy nature's beauty.

Kauai is the only Hawaiian island with a river suitable river for kayaking. Wailua River
on the eastern side of the island is a favored destination. The right side of the river is
reserved for kayaking.

Wailua River Valley was once reserved for royalty. It is still considered sacred and
special by many. The river is typically gentle with little current.

Lush tropical foliage, beautiful exotic blooming flowers, ancient ruins, sacred
waterfalls, old Hawaiian villages, pristine canyons and tropical rain forests are just a
portion of the scenic beauty kayakers can experience.
Several tour companies operate in the region. Single, double, and triple kayaks are
available for rent. The Secret Falls and Fern Grotto are popular Hawaii kayaking
destinations.

There are times when access to one or more areas (such as the grotto) is restricted
but there's so much more to see that kayakers aren't left with time on their hands.

Maui kayaking tours include beginner tours, Makena tours and Honolua Bay tours.
Kayak surfing tours are available and at least one tour company welcomes physically
challenged kayakers.

Kayaking Makena Landing gives paddlers the opportunity to see turtles, eels,
octopus, reef sharks, tropical fish and
occasionally whales or dolphins.

The secluded and beautiful Pali Sea Cliff area features rugged shoreline, sharp sea
cliffs and stunning coral reefs. Hawaiian green sea turtles are a highlight of kayaking
Makena Bay.

Honolua Bay is a marine reserve. The coral reef teems with fish. Kayaking here does
require paddling into moderately strong trade winds.

Kayaking Hawaii's Molokini Crater allows kayakers to access areas powerboats can
get to. Some of the island's most spectacular sea life is said to be found here.

Molokai is best reserved for experienced kayakers. Ocean swells and rough waves
make paddling too difficult and dangerous for beginners. The island's undeveloped
north shore may be paddled from east to west but kayakers rarely paddle the return
route. Ten mile-per-hour winds make the trip a rough one.

Kayaking Hawaii's Kona coast gives paddlers the opportunity to explore Kealakekua
Bay, Keahou, Ho'okena, Honaunau and Kailua.
Kealakekua Bay is the most protected deep water bay and is designated a Marine
Life Conservation District. The Bay was the home of many Hawaiian Chiefs and is
where Captain Cook landed. A Captain Cook monument stands there today.
Across the bay, kayakers will find pristine reefs where over 250 species of fish have
been identified. Glass kayaks can be rented in Kona, making kayaking Hawaii a truly
amazing and different experience.

Keahuou Bay, birthplace of Kamehameha the great, boasts calm waters. Kayakers
paddling along the south cliffs will pass sea caves. One of the sea caves can often
be entered by kayak, making for a unique Hawaiian kayaking experience.

Kayaking Hawaii can be a tranquil experience or an adrenalin rush. From tropical
waterfalls to rushing rapids, from sea caves to historical ruins, paddlers can choose
the perfect kayak trip.

excellent way to meet up with the Port River dolphins and to tour the Ships
Graveyard Maritime Heritage trail.

Great Barrier Reef

Reef. Sandy beaches, clear water and a tropical rain forest make it a popular
kayaking destination with some tours.

Tully River in the World Heritage Rainforest

a Class IV, in the World Heritage Rain Forest is Australia's most famous whitewater
kayaking destination.

Heritage Rain Forest. It's a steep, technical grade 4 river. A five hour kayaking trip
covers 45 rapids, including the Alarm Clock, the Wet & Moisty, Staircase and Theatre.

Prince's Bridge to Westgate Bridge
The Yarra River used to be the lifeblood of Melbourne. Kayakers can see the old
docks, boats and bridges from water level. Paddle alongside tankers and cargo boats
for a new perspective on size. The area now contains a casino, restaurants, shops
and cycling track. Kayakers can pull up at Southbank or the Docklands and grab
some refreshment.
From the magnificent Sydney Harbor to the wild Tully River, Australia offers
something for both experienced and beginning kayakers.

Kayaking in Florida; A Different Approach to "Fun in the Sun"

Florida is often a popular destination for tourists and not just in the summer, but all
year long. Florida offers miles of sandy beaches, annual warm weather, great
shopping adventures and wonderful dining. Most people head straight for the beach
when visiting Florida, taking in the sun at places like Daytona Beach, Boynton Beach,
and private beaches along Clearwater and Orlando. While these are great relaxation
spots, sometimes they can get overcrowded and it's hard to appreciate the natural
beauty of Florida. That's why Florida is also home to several kayaking adventures,
where you can experience a unique aspect to fun in the sun.

In central Florida, check out A Day Away Outfitters and Kayak Tours. Centered on
Merritt Island, A Day Away offers tours aimed specifically at viewing dolphins,
manatee, and alligator. You'll also have a chance to catch a glimpse of wild turkeys
and pigs lurking in the woods surrounding the islands. Each tour is guided by a
professional kayaking instructor and is available seven days a week.

If you're visiting or live around south Florida, Atlantic Coast Kayak Company provides
informative kayaking classes and guided tours. Take a tour around the infamous
Florida Keys, where you'll be able to take a pit stop and swim with the dolphins if
conditions are favorable. For a truly unique kayaking experience, consider taking a
tour to Whiskey Creek. Located between the beach and the waterway within John
Lloyd State Park, Whiskey Creek is popular for spotting beautiful aquatic birds, a
variety of saltwater fish, and even stingrays! Not only will you catch views of wildlife
only seen on the discovery channel, but you'll also have the chance to see the large
and historic ships of Port Everglades.

If you reside in Florida or plan to visit several times a year, consider becoming a
member of the Florida Sea Kayaking Association (FSKA). You can receive
significantly discounted kayaking trips all around Florida, and privileges to some of
Florida's most serene and prestigious kayaking locations. Joining this or a similar
kayaking association could save you lots of money if kayaking is one of your frequent
hobbies.

Finally, if you plan to be in the Orlando area and have some time for a longer aquatic
outdoor excursion, then sign up with Florida Sun Safari National Park Adventure.
This eight day journey will lead you through many destinations beginning in Orlando.
You'll enjoy a hike through the Everglades National Park, where you'll have the
opportunity to view unique aquatic birds and some of Florida's most hidden wildlife.

tranquil waters, but also scuba dive! Experience a picnic lunch and a chance to touch
manatees at Canaveral National Seashore on the final day. This unforgettable
opportunity costs around $825 per person and covers food and transportation.

Next time you're in Florida, you'll find so many great opportunities for kayaking and

Kayaking the Big Island - A True Hawaiian Adventure!

Simply put, kayaking the Big Island refers to kayaking adventures around Hawaii.
While Hawaii is known for its white sandy beaches, emerald-green waters, active
volcanoes, and tropical plants, it's also the perfect location for kayaking. The Big
Island provides opportunities for everyone to enjoy kayaking, regardless of your age
or ability level. You can choose to paddle through either extreme or tranquil waters,
both of which offer an amazing glimpse at some of Hawaii's wildlife and beautiful
scenery. The common places for kayaking around the Big Island are Kauai, Oahu,
and Maui.

Kauai is sometimes referred to as "the emerald island," and for very good reason.
Not only is it one of the most beautiful Hawaiian islands, Kauai has some of the most
stunning and active rainforests known to Hawaii. The waterfall terrain along the Na
Pali coast provides excellent photography opportunities for those kayaking the Big
Island. These waterfalls gently flow into the ocean and set the ultimate conditions for
kayaking. Keep your eyes peeled for sights of Hawaiian wildlife along the coast, such
as sea lions and other manatee. You may even want to consider snorkeling in this
area of the Big Island, as you will find beautiful tropical fish swimming beneath the

be sure to take advantage of all the opportunities Oahu has to offer.

Although the island of Maui is only forty-eight miles long, it is one of the most famous
places of the Big Island. It's often referred to "Valley Isle" because of the massive
valley between its two volcanoes. The shoreline of Maui provides some great
kayaking and is most popular for whale-watching. Kayaking in this area of the Big
Island is sure to bring you up close and personal with the humpback whales that
inhibit the Hawaiian Island. It is recommended to kayak in the early morning hours to
see the whales, and it should be noted that the waters surrounding Maui are typically
rough and not as easily navigable. Therefore, you should go on a guided tour to
kayak this area of the Big Island to help ensure your safety.

The Big Island is full of kayak opportunities as well as scuba diving, snorkeling, cliff
jumping, and many other thrilling water activities. If you ever plan to visit Hawaii,
kayaking is your best bet to seeing all of the beauty and wonders of the Big Island.

Visiting Canada? Take a tour with Mothership Adventures!

In Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, you'll find one of the best kayaking

providing its clients a comfortable journey out to sea aboard the "mothership", vessel
Columbia III. You'll experience views of wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and
genuine welcome from the crew and staff. This is sure to be an unforgettable
adventure for people of all ages!

The first of these is the Desolation Sound Tour. For this tour, you will depart from the
beautiful Campbell River aboard the mothership and set sail for the quiet and tranquil
Desolation Sound, known for its abundant marine life with different mammals and
sea birds. Once you arrive, you'll step off the mothership and into your tandem kayak,
where you'll paddle through the tiny passageways. This allows you to explore
Desolation Sound without missing a single breathtaking view.

The second tour available through Mothership Adventures is The Broughton
Archipelago and Johnstone Strait Kayak Tour. The Broughton Archipelago is a quiet
setting for the wildlife, and is often unaccessible to private kayakers. The mothership
anchors itself in a tiny corner, allowing kayakers aboard to explore areas that would
otherwise never be seen. You'll set sail from Port McNeill and sail past the beautiful
Coast Mountaints. This provides an excellent opportunity for some great photography!
Broughton Archipelago is home to many aquatic and terrestial animals. You'll spot
harbor seals, otter, and occassionally a family of bald eagles nesting in the trees
along the shoreline. You'll also see white-sided dolphins frolicking in the gentle
waves, and you may even spot a black bear as he fishes for his dinner!

The last tour is the Great Bear Rainforest Kayaking Tour, which is said to be the best
sea kayaking available in Canada. This week long excursion allows kayakers to take
in the beauty and immaculate wilderness of British Columbia's wild central coast.

Where to Take a Guided Kayaking Tour in San Diego
Take a look around the city of San Diego, and you're likely to see everyone getting
around on bike or by trolley. While it's true that San Diego is full of sites and
attractions, very few people realize that it's also an ideal location to experience some
great kayaking. In fact, some of the best scenery of San Diego is only seen from the
water, and kayaking is an excellent way to take in all of the sights and sounds of this
"big little city".

Start your kayaking adventure in San Diego by taking a tour of the La Jolla Sea
Caves. While it sounds like it may be an intimidating experience, it's actually a very
pleasant and fun outdoor adventure! Beginning at the La Jolla Shores, you can
paddle your way through an outdoor paradise while you view areas of San Diego's
coast. Before reaching the historical sea caves, you'll have a chance to get up close
and personal with sea lions, stingrays, and other aquatic life that reside within these
canals. In fact, it's even said that harbor seals sit perched among the rocks of the
water and "wave" at their visitors who pass by!

However, kayaking in San Diego is just as fun in the fall and winter as it is in the
summer. Winter is known to be a season of hibernation and mating, and that's
exactly what you'll find as you explore Baja's Pacific Coast! During the colder
seasons, gray whales leave their homeland of the Arctic Ocean and make their way
to the inviting warmth of Baja. In the months of December and January, the whales
mate and give birth. Take advantage of a guided tour from La Jolla Shores during
this time, and experience the thrill of viewing these amazing animals in person.

If you plan to visit San Diego with small children, there are opportunities for them to
experience the fun of kayaking as well. In areas of Monterey and Elkhorn Slough,
there are very calm and tranquil waters that are perfect for children and families.
Monterey
Bay offers fascinating history and abundant marine life, while Elkhorn Slough is an
excellent kayaking route for the nature and wildlife lover. (Often, you can spot several
breeds of exotic birds.) The children will love the feeling of paddling through the
water on a boat, and adults will enjoy the quiet ride while taking in some sightseeing.

If you've ever dreamed of catching the biggest fish among your friends and family,
then look into opportunities for kayak fishing around Monterey Bay. While this area is
known for its calm and peaceful surroundings, it is also home to some of California's
best fishing. There are several classes offered in the area and guided tours and trips
directed towards kayak fishing.

With so many amazing opportunities for kayaking in San Diego, you are sure to find
the water adventure that's right for you and your family!

Tandem Kayaking; Sharing the Adventure!

When kayaking originally became a popular water activity, the kayaks were made to
only accommodate one person. This obviously presented a problem in a few different
areas. First, it didnโ€™t allow for much conversation. If someone wanted to talk about
their surroundings or nearby sights, they either had to shout to the closest kayak or
just not talk at all. Second, if conditions became less than favorable for a kayaking
excursion, there was no one to share the physical challenge with. So over time, the
concept of developing a kayak for two people became reality. This is what we know
today as tandem kayaking.

Tandem kayaking has become a major convenience among families. Prior to the
development of tandem kayaks, kayaking wasnโ€™t an activity cut out for families with
small children. It was difficult to keep entire families together and communication was
even more complicated. Now, families can take advantage of the tandem kayaking
system; the multiple seats allow children to stay together and adults have an easier
time providing supervision. Smaller children should be placed in the lap of an adult
while tandem kayaking; larger children can sit in their own seats, typically the in the
middle between the two adults. Additionally, tandem kayaking helps ease the minds
of novice kayakers. Even if youโ€™ve never been out on the water, you can still enjoy
the thrills of kayaking by exploring the waters with an experienced kayaker.
However, it should be noted that convenience isnโ€™t the only reason to experience
tandem kayaking. If you are a novice kayaker, then seize the opportunity to gain
experience by taking control of your tandem kayak. This often leads to the dilemma
of where to sit in a tandem kayak, and that all depends on a number of factors. You
definitely want to distribute the weight evenly in a tandem kayak while trying to
accommodate experience and preference. For example, you would most likely place
the person with the most experience in the back seat. This is because the rear of the
kayak handles the majority of the steering and paddling.

However, when conditions are favorable, allow the novice kayaker to sit in the rear
and try their hand at steering and guiding. After all, this is the only way to gain
experience in tandem kayaking. You still want to keep in mind that the rear of a
tandem kayak should have the most weight. Some tandem kayaks are not built to
accommodate large people in the front. If for any reason you have to paddle the
kayak alone, remember to sit in the middle seat and distribute the weight. You may
need to place a cooler, luggage, or some other heavy object in the front and rear to
help control the kayak.

If gaining experience isnโ€™t a priority to you in tandem kayaking, then there are several
reasons to take full advantage of sitting in the front. You can enjoy your surroundings
by taking pictures or looking through binoculars, or perhaps you want to try out
fishing from a kayak. Whatever your reason may be, tandem kayaking is an
enjoyable way of exploring the water.

Ocean Kayaking - The Ultimate Challenge in Exploring the Waters

When you think of kayaking, you probably think of a relaxing journey through calm
and tranquil waters aboard a small canoe-like boat. This is what kayaking is all about
for the most part, but for those looking for a challenge and excitement, there's ocean
kayaking. Generally speaking, ocean kayaking is at times comparable to white water
rafting. Not in regards to equipment, but speed and level of activity. Therefore, ocean
kayaking is typically left to those who are very experienced in the water.

Canada is an excellent location to experience the ultimate ocean kayaking. Known
for its scenic beauty and natural appeal, Canada provides everything needed for your
journey along the ocean. Starting at the Ucluelet Harbour along the northwest coast,
you will have the chance to see some of Canada's most precious wildlife. Black
bears are often spotted fishing along the shore line, and sea lions call out to you as if
to say "hello" as you pass by. You'll also pass through some breathtaking waterfalls
in this area (be prepared to paddle harder!) and see some historic houses and fishing
boats along the shore. Barkley Sound provides an excellent opportunity for spotting
unique aquatic animals, such as seahorses, sea stars, sand dollars, and natural
sponges. Barkley Sound is full of mini-islands to explore, and often eagles, river
otters, and sometimes whales can be viewed in this area.

Elk, California is another ideal location to experience the excitement of ocean
kayaking. Here, you can paddle your way through the waters of the Pacific Ocean
and explore hidden sea caves and small beaches to get a good look at some
amazing wildlife. Whales are known to peep out of the water as kayaks pass through
and you'll have the chance to visit with some other unique marine life. Stop for a
break on the secluded beaches along Elk's coastline, and experience fishing for
shellfish right from your own kayak.

If you're traveling to Hawaii, Kona is one of the best places to explore the ocean
through kayaking. Here, you can get up close and personal with dolphins, explore the
magical, hidden sea caves of Hawaii, and try out snorkeling to see the magnificent
creatures that live beneath the water. Make your way through the cliffs of Kuamoo
Bay, where you will have the chance to view the sea turtles and manta rays. Follow
the shoreline to the sea caves, where you can spot coral gardens and underwater
lava tubes. Tropical fish are known to make this location their home, so take
advantage of this snorkeling opportunity. Not only is Kona the perfect spot for ocean
kayaking, but it's known to have some of the best cliff jumping in Hawaii!

Even if you are not the most experienced in ocean kayaking, you can look for places
that offer group tours. You will still need to be in average physical shape, but you can
rely on others if the paddling is too much for you. A simple search of the internet will
provide you with a list of tour companies and it's recommended that you call in
advance to inquire about the physical requirements for ocean kayaking.

Extreme Kayaking - Kayaking at Your Own Risk!

Generally speaking, kayaking is something everyone can do. It does not require any
previous knowledge or experience, and as long as you're in average shape, you can
participate in this easy-going, tranquil experience out on the water. Another popular
water activity is whitewater rafting. This on the other hand isn't so calm and relaxing,
but more exciting and thrilling. You don't need any experience to try your luck at
whitewater rafting, but you do need to be in good shape and be able to swim.
Extreme kayaking is a sport that combines these two popular water sports, and is
typically reserved for those with experience and confidence in raging waters.

Extreme kayaking can be done in many ways, but most experienced kayakers prefer
to slide down the face of a waterfall and land into the busy waters below. Therefore,
the equipment used in extreme kayaking differs greatly from that in classic kayaking.
Extreme kayaks are built to withstand the rugged waters and speed. The most
popular materials used to make these boats are fiberglass and Kevlar, making for a
durable surface if scratched or damaged in any way. The boats range in size for
extreme kayaking, from big enough to hold one person to twelve feet or longer.

The International Scale of River Difficulty places the difficulty of rivers into
classifications. This is how to decide where the best conditions are for extreme
kayaking. Typical kayaking is done on rivers with a Class I grade, being the
smoothest and tranquil waters. Extreme kayaking is done on Class III-IV grades,
which are recommended for advanced kayakers only. There are different types of
extreme kayaking and not all of them involve plunging down a waterfall into a flowing
stream of rugged water. If you're comfortable with your ability to handle rough water
but not yet ready to take a 45 foot plunge, you can try out river running. This is a form
of extreme kayaking that promises bumps, twists, and turns down rocky waters, but
doesn't involve kayaking off any cliffs or down great distances. An extension of this is
called "creeking", where extreme kayakers can experience a little more excitement
by closely riding the ledges and creeks and dropping down shorter waterfalls.

Freestyle extreme kayaking doesn't involve making your way from one point to
another, but rather staying in one spot as you work against the current and using
various maneuvers to stay above water. This is sure to be a physical challenge and
should only be attempted by expert extreme kayakers.

Asheville, North Carolina is a popular spot for extreme kayaking. Asheville offers
three different classes of river difficulty, making it ideal for beginners and expert
extreme kayakers. The most famous creek for whitewater creek is Big Creek, and is
used daily by extreme kayakers. You can also find rapid waters ideal for extreme
kayaking in areas of Oregon and Colorado. A search of the internet will provide you a
list of ideal locations nearby and all across the country.

Nude Kayaking; Experiencing the Water Outside of a Shower!

Braving the waters "au naturel" is something we would normally think of doing when
taking a shower or soaking in a bath. But have you ever gotten the feeling to do
something crazy and unforgettable? Do you love the outdoors and the water? If you
answered yes to both of these questions, then you may just be the right person to
experience nude kayaking. After all, it's an excursion that isn't likely to be forgotten in
your lifetime!

Even if you have no experience with kayaking but still want to try this bold approach
to fun and good times, you have absolutely nothing holding you back - except maybe
your clothes. Kayaking is an activity that is considered safe for people of all ages and
ability levels. It requires little physical exertion (provided the weather cooperates) and
some would even consider it to be a relaxing experience. With that concern out of the
way, if you're willing to paddle your way through the water wearing your birthday suit,
then all you need to know now is where to go to experience this thrill.

The Paddling Bares Canoe Club in New Jersey is an excellent resource for those
looking to try out nude kayaking. The club refers to themselves as "kayakers and
canoeists who are also naturists." The club strongly emphasizes safety first,
therefore, no alcohol is permitted on any trip and sexual behavior is strictly prohibited.
Some of their trips include hiking and overnight camping, but these additions usually
mean spending time somewhere secluded and legal for nude activity - therefore, you
won't have the luxury of showers or toilets and may be amidst some intimidating
wildlife. To participate in the club's nude outdoor adventures, you will first need to
complete an application and send a check; they will then provide you with information
regarding upcoming trips.

If you're able to travel abroad for your nude kayaking trip, then Crete, Greece is an
ideal location. Located along the Mediterranean Sea in Europe, Crete provides a safe
haven and relaxing atmosphere for those wishing to kayak in the nude. You'll
experience a journey through some of Greece's most fascinating history by paddling
through the waters of Crete's narrow passageways. In addition to nude kayaking,
Crete also offers nude visitors the chance to scuba dive, water ski, and enjoy many
other outdoor water sports at their many nudist resorts. You can find some great
package deals on nude kayaking trips to Greece, some starting as low as $2000 for a
week long adventure!

If you head south of the border, the Baja Peninsula in Mexico is another great spot to
experience kayaking while feeling the "cool breezes." This is a popular destination for
all kayaking lovers, but you can find resorts and trips aimed specifically at nude
adventures. Not only does the Baja Peninsula offer some great kayaking, but you can
also enjoy nude snorkeling, scuba diving (although this particular activity can't be
done in the nude), hiking, fishing, and whale watching.
