More Information


Participants will be provided with an easy-to-use and stable kayak. Most participants want an extra-stable double kayak, although single kayaks are available for the adventurous. You’ll also get a life jacket and, of course, paddles.

Be sure to wear water-resistant pants, a jacket to protect you from the wind, and shoes that can get wet. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a change of clothes and extra shoes in case you get splashed. Dress in layers, and bring a hat, sunglasses, sunblock and bottled water.
