About the Kayaks:

We mostly use double kayaks on our tours, in a mix of enclosed and sit-on-top varieties.  All kayaks have good back support either as a moulded seat or as a padded fabric contraption. Kayaks have plenty of storage space either in enclosed hatches or open deck space. Dry storage bags for a small amount of gear (towel, jacket, phone etc) are provided on tours. If you plan to bring extra gear we recommend packing a large plastic garbage type bag.



What to wear:

You will get wet when paddling from splashes and your feet will get wet when getting in and out of the kayak. Comfortable lightweight clothes (no jeans) are best, a hat and plastic shoes/thongs or shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. Bring your swimming costume if you would like to enjoy a swim. Pack a lighweight wet weather jacket in case of rain and a fleece if it is expected to be cool.
