If you’ve never been kayaking you don’t know the fun you’re missing. It’s one of the most relaxing water sports available and yet it can give you a superb upper body workout. Coastal kayaking is a different experience than paddling in the rivers, lakes and ponds. The environment of the salt marsh presents you with an experience that is sure to stimulate your senses.

The first time out it’s always a good idea to go on a guided tour where kayaks, PFDs and paddles are all provided. A trained kayaking guide that knows the area well will take you out on the water. It’s suitable for both adults and children. You don’t even have to know how to swim!
