What is Sea Kayaking?
Very simply, sea kayaking is paddling on coastal and exposed open waters.
Modern sea kayaks are based on the same design that the Inuit people of Greenland and Aluit people of Alaska evolved over thousands of years in Arctic conditions. Being a hunter’s boat their sea kayaks had to be both sea worthy and fast in order to keep pace with their prey in the open sea. No longer made from bone and hides, today’s kayaks are mostly either plastic or composite construction which makes them both light and durable.
To visit an untrodden wilderness or glide effortlessly over clear and tranquil sea as seals and dolphin dart about and whales come to have a look. Sea kayaking is the perfect vehicle for all this, an escape capsule from the hustle and bustle.
Sea kayaking is one of the fastest growing adventure activities in the world today. It is enjoying spectacular growth as more and more people experience and explore the world’s coastal regions, arguably the only true wilderness left in our crowded outdoors...
