                                    • What should I wear kayaking?

                                      You should wear a swimsuit or light clothing that you don't mind getting wet. If you plan to be out in the sun for a long time, it's also a good idea to wear a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Also, it's best to wear shoes that you can easily slip off and on and that will stay securely on your feet, such as water shoes or sandals with a heel strap.

                                    • What type of kayak should I use?

                                      The type of kayak you should use will depend on your experience level and the type of water you plan to kayak in. If you are a beginner, an inflatable kayak is a good option as it is lightweight and easy to transport. If you plan to kayak in rougher waters, a hard-shell kayak is the best option.

                                    • What safety gear is necessary for kayaking?

                                      You should always have a life jacket when kayaking. It is also important to have a whistle and a light, such as a flashlight, to signal your location in case of emergency. Additionally, a dry bag is a great way to store essential items such as a cell phone, wallet, and keys.
