What is Kayaking?
Kayaking is a water sport that involves paddling using a double-bladed oar and a small boat known as a kayak. Kayaks come in a variety of sizes and types, depending on where it would be used. The boat sits low in the water and usually only accommodates one, two or even up to three paddlers. Kayaking is also great activity to try while on your Hawaii vacation.
Kayaking is a versatile sport that can be done in practically any body of water. Everyone from beginners to experts can enjoy the sport. Different kayaks are designed to handle different water conditions. Rivers, lakes, oceans and even surf zones are popular spots for kayaking.
If you’re interested in kayaking, try renting one out along with the only gear you'll need which is a kayak, a paddle and, in some places, a life jacket.
