If you’ve never tried kayaking before—say, you’ve been living under a rock or sadly landlocked—I can’t recommend it strongly enough! Kayaks are even more versatile than canoes, good for the following: white water rapids, shallow swamp tarns, placid rivers, icy lakes, and even ocean surf. Try taking a canoe to the beach; you’ll regret it almost instantly. (Pounding waves against sharp shell shards and packed sand, anyone?) What are you waiting for? Find you a local rental spot and get paddling today!
