Getting ready for a Kayak Explorer Tour isn't tricky, but a bit of planning goes a long way. Here’s your cheat sheet:

  • Clothing: Dress in weather-appropriate, flexible clothing. Leave the jeans at home and opt for leggings, shorts, or sports pants. And don’t forget a non-cotton top and bottoms to keep warm if you get splashed.
  • Footwear: Water shoes or old sneakers work great. Just make sure your feet are comfy and secure!
  • Sun Protection: Sunscreen is a must, plus sunglasses with a strap to avoid losing them in the water.
  • Hydration: Bring a water bottle. Paddling is thirsty work, especially in the sun!
