Kayaking Preparation - What to Bring

There are a lot of things you need to know before heading on that Kayaking adventure. For starters, most Kayaking outfitters already have the basic essentials that you will need. If you have already tried Kayaking, you already know what you need to bring. But if this is your first time, refer to the checklist below.

  • Extra clothes, bathing suits
  •  Hat
  •  Sunglasses
  • Water shoes
  • Enough drinking water/snacks
  •  Sunscreen
  • Towel

Your set of Kayaking Apparel is designed to keep you protected and warm even when wet. Clothes made of cotton are not advisable as this material retains water which makes it longer to dry and will not keep you warm.

If you are allergic to insect bites or stings, bring the necessary medication and insect repellants. Apply sunscreen before heading out or as needed. Sun’s rays reflecting on the water greatly increases the chances of getting sunburn. Put sunscreen even on a cloudy day. Hat and sunglasses are also necessary.

For night Kayaking, you will need a waterproof flashlight. We do have Some Kayaking trips will allow you to sleep and camp overnight, so pack light. Just bring a small bag and all the necessities that you will need.


 

KayakingSafety Tips

Whether you are into Sea Kayaking or Whitewater Kayaking, this activity brings out the outdoor adventure spirit in you. Go paddling and you will understand why more and more people are getting hooked in this water activity. But before anything else, it is important to note that any outdoor activity comes with innate risks. This is one of the essential features of the activity that every paddler or kayaker should know and understand. But don’t fret. You can do something to minimize the risks and ensure a safe trip.

Have a better understanding of the activity.

Knowing at least the basics of Kayaking will somewhat keep you on your guard. Be mentally ready by understanding the dangers involved and knowing what to do and how to react to different situations.

Be physically ready.

Develop physical strength and endurance. If you are beginner, you may be surprised at how tiring Paddling can be even though you are just doing it in a short distance.

Fuel up.
Make sure that your body is up for the activity. Fuel up with the right kind of food. In addition, bring enough drinking water to keep yourself well-hydrated.

Plan and prepare for the trip.

If traveling with the group, make sure that everyone knows what the plan is, as well as the designated tasks. Carry out a briefing before heading out. Prepare all the necessary pieces of Kayaking Gear.

Wear safety gear.

Buoyancy or flotation aids and helmets are indispensable pieces of safety equipment. Do not go Kayaking without wearing your PFD and head gear. Also, make sure to wear the right pieces of Kayaking Clothing.

 Apply sunscreen.

Protect your skin even during cloudy days. UV rays reflect on the water so apply sunscreen as needed.

It pays to equip yourself – gear-wise, mentally, and physically – to ensure that you will be safe throughout the trip. Safety spells a fun and exciting adventure so heed the precautions, stay safe, and have fun!
