ocean kayaking

Ocean kayaking is an exhilarating experience every kayaker should try at least once in their lifetime!

Ocean kayaking can be unpredictable; therefore, you must take some safety precautions as you venture out.

Kayaking is tiring and difficult, especially when exploring the ocean.

Build stamina

Start your kayaking trip near the shoreline to build your strength before moving farther away.

Generally, when the wind is under 10 knots or 11.5 mph, it’s considered safe to kayak in the sea.

Always check the weather

Don’t forget to check the water temperature, tides, and ocean currents.

If you are taking a solo trip, inform a friend or family member about your plans.

Inform others about the trip

It's best to tag along with a more experienced kayaker for your first few trips.
