Go Kayaking

COMPLETED BY 312

LISTED 417

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. There are many types of kayaks used in flatwater and whitewater kayaking. The sizes and shapes vary drastically depending on what type of water to be paddled on and also what the paddler would like to do.

Kayaks, first built by the Inuits in North America, were used to hunt on inland lands. Estimated to be at least 4,000 years old, kayaks in their earliest forms were made from stitched seal or other animal skins over a frame made from whalebone.

Today’s kayaks, typically built with fiberglass, wood, rotomolded plastic or Kevlar, are designed more for recreation for a number of different water environments, including lakes, whitewater rivers, and seas. At the heart of kayaking is paddling, but there’s a lot more to learn about the techniques and equipment to ensure beginners are safe, aware and enjoying themselves.

There are numerous kayaking spots in the world, Here is the list of some of them

  1. Sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico
  2. Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
  3. Amazon
  4. Sermilik Fjord, Greenland
  5. Na Pali Coast, Kauai
  6. Fiordland, New Zealand
  7. Dalmatian Coast of Croatia
  8. Svalbard, Norway
  9. Andean Fjords, Patagonia, Chile
  10. Glacier Bay, Alaska, USA

We went kayaking first in False Bay and then in Hermanus, South Africa, during the whale season. I couldn't see any whales but the pictures they showed us they were all around us. More than exciting this was terrifying for me. I don't think I'll do it again!

Never thought kayaking could be so fun! Maybe because I had a great time with my love, Marco. I used to be very afraid of water but after this experience I loved the sea! This was amazing!
