How to Prepare for Your Kayaking Adventure!

What to bring along:

  •  Change of Clothes and a Towel. Even if you are not planning on going into the water there is a chance you will get wet. Water frequently drips into the kayak from the paddle. So after your trip, extra clothing and a towel will make you feel nice and dry. 
  • Sunscreen and Bug Spray. Depending on how long you are out, reapplying sunscreen to prevent burns is always a good idea. And bug spray to help if you are in an area with lots of foliage is always a good idea. 
  • Hat and Sunglasses. Sometimes the glare can hurt your eyes. Sunglasses and hats can help keep you from squinting so you can enjoy the view!
  • Water Bottle. Stay hydrated!  And please don’t forget to take all your trash with you when you leave so we can keep our coastlines beautiful.
