How to Prepare for Your Kayak Adventure

Are You Ready for Your Kayak Rental Experience?

Spending a quality time in the open with friends or your family is a wonderful way to feel close to nature and practice your favorite sports. Planning a kayak camping expedition trip is interesting and exciting. But a sea kayaking adventure could also be dangerous. So, we feel obliged to help you with the planning and warn you about the following things:


Contacting a professional kayak rental company is only the beginning. Renting a sea kayak according to your body features is important. There are different types of vessels. Some of smaller and more narrow, others are longer. So, if you are a first-time kayak adventurer, it will be good to consult with a specialist about that.

Next, you will need some compulsory supplies. You should not forget to bring your cell phones or other communication tools fully charged so that you are ready to call anybody without a hitch. Plus, bring your camera with charged batteries. Bottles of fresh drinkable water are another must. You should pay special attention to your clothing. We recommend you wearing something comfortable and appropriate for that time of the year. Have clothes for both warm and cold weather, just in case. Checking the weather forecast in advance will help you a lot.

Buying special water shoes will help you get less wet. You can try rubber boots or neoprene water shoes, for example. To protect your eyes, you must take sunglasses and for your skin, you have to use sunscreen products. Additionally, you will need a quality small flashlight, kayak gloves, and fast-dry towels.

Each professional kayak rental provider will tell you that water is the breeding ground for mosquitoes and other insects. So, bringing an insect repellent is a great idea. For your kayaking camping adventure, you will need to take your personal medications and toiletries too. If you intend to fish, you will need your fishing gear, as well as a nice book or a magazine for those quiet times.
