For optimal comfort and functionality, opt for non-cotton clothing (avoid jeans) when gearing up for your kayaking adventure. Synthetic fast-dry materials offer superior moisture-wicking properties, keeping you dry and comfortable throughout your journey.

Ensure your footwear provides secure traction and can withstand getting wet, as your feet are likely to get damp during boat entry and exit. If you don’t have suitable footwear, don’t worry – we offer Crocs for borrowing.

Lastly, don’t forget to pack essentials like water, sunscreen, and a hat to stay hydrated and protected from the sun’s rays. With these key items in tow, you’ll be ready to make the most of your paddling experience!
