When people think of water sports, kayaks are usually first in mind. Kayaking is a great way to enjoy the ocean and get some great exercise in. 

We’ll go over some of the reasons why kayaking is so much fun!


Great Exercise

Kayaking is a great low impact way to get exercise while enjoying the great outdoors. While you’re pushing your paddle through the water you use both your muscles and joints, without any brute impact. All the while you are getting your heart rate up, and also utilizing your body for balance and control. 

You can enjoy this exercise without having to worry about injury since you can determine the intensity of your rows and taking a break is easy to do. Make sure to stay hydrated when paddling!


Easy to Learn

Kayaking may seem “hard” to some, but in truth it’s very simple to learn, and can be a fun challenge to master. Let’s go over some basics of paddling. You can imagine the paddles like your arms, and the kayak is your body. The same way you would swim you will use the paddles to push yourself forward with a swimming motion. 

After some practice you’ll be paddling like a pro and able to handle any body of water!


Explore Nature

When on a kayak you have access to nature that you may not have otherwise. You are able to be on a body of water and access beaches, islands, and waterways you’ve probably never seen. Without a motor and not too big of a size you can get into any place with water and space to paddle. The lack of machinery also makes you more quiet and less intimidating to local wildlife. You may be able to even paddle alongside some cool animals like the local manatee!


Fun for Any Age

Kayaking is accessible to anyone at any age. As long as you can swim and handle paddling, kayaking should work for you. Any body of water with minimal wake and activity should be safe for children to kayak. Balance and tipping over is another control, but with less weight on the craft there should be less of a chance of getting off balance. 


Great for Couples or Groups

Kayaks come in multiple shapes and sizes, some are considered tandem, which means they can carry multiple passengers. This is great for a couple to go out and have fun together, and it makes rowing a lot easier. Two people means two rowers and less work for each. 

And with multiple kayaks you can have whole groups out on the water. With minimal noise and just the nature around you, you can enjoy a tranquil hangout with friends and family.
