One type, the playboat, is short, with a scooped bow and blunt stern. These trade speed and stability for high maneuverability. Their primary use is performing tricks in individual water features or short stretches of river. In playboating or freestyle competition (also known as rodeo boating), kayakers exploit the complex currents of rapids to execute a series of tricks, which are scored for skill and style.

If you’re not sure if you’re quite ready for kayaking then please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us, we’d be more than happy to help you with any questions you might have.Getting ready for kayaking © Elke Lindner-Oceanwide ExpeditionsHow many times will I get to go kayaking?Kayaking is of course subject to weather and water conditions – your safety is our primary concern. That being said, any cruise with kayaking as an option tries to schedule up to four excursions.Is kayaking safe?One must take some caution when kayaking. First, you are exposed to Polar weather and sea conditions, and if you don’t dress warmly enough you might be some time before getting back to the main ship. Because you are on Polar waters there is a chance of exposure to hypothermia. For these reasons kayak excursions are limited to 14 passengers total – this number lets our accompanying guides keep track of everyone and make sure that everyone is having a good time.
Dimensions will vary depending on which type of boat you select. Long-distance options tend to be between 16 and 19 feet in length. Playboaters who want to do tricks require a highly maneuverable boat that is about 5 to 6 feet long. Boats for use on whitewater rivers are generally around 8 feet in length. A fishing kayak measures between 10 and 13 feet long.

Contemporary kayaks can be equipped with after-market fishing accessories such as anchor trolleys, rod holders, electronic fish-finders and live-bait containers. Kayak anglers target highly prized gamefish like snook, red drum, seatrout, tarpon, halibut and cod and also pelagics like amberjacks, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, king mackerel, and even marlin.

Most of the Aleut people in the Aleutian Islands eastward to Greenland Inuit relied on the kayak for hunting a variety of prey—primarily seals, though whales and caribou were important in some areas. Skin-on-frame kayaks are still being used for hunting by Inuit people in Greenland, because the smooth and flexible skin glides silently through the waves. In other parts of the world home builders are continuing the tradition of skin on frame kayaks, usually with modern skins of canvas or synthetic fabric, such as sc. ballistic nylon.

A wheeled carrier that will haul your kayak for you is a kayak trailer. You will either attach it to your vehicle, (Car, truck, SUV – whatever you have that will take the weight) or you will pull it yourself. (Whereas you become the vehicle that hauls it, but you do it more easily than dragging it on your own.) You could also attach one to your bike and allow it to pull for you. Often kayaks carriers intended for your bike can double as hand trailers, too. Kayak trailers will haul your kayaks great distances (on a truck or perhaps bike trailer) or just help you in getting the kayak into the water (like a hand trailer that will let you transport the kayak shorter distances.)
Kayaks are narrow, highly maneuverable boats powered by a double-handled paddle and used by anglers and recreational boaters worldwide. Kayaks were originally developed by hunters in the arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Ancient kayaks were made of seal skins stretched over a frame constructed from wood or whale bones, and were custom built by the hunter themselves based on their needs and family traditions. Kayaks take minimal effort to paddle due to their sleek profiles and lightweight construction, making them extremely efficient for arctic conditions. Inuit kayak designs would shield the paddler from bitter cold water by the enclosed decking, which would also provide some storage space for tools or trade goods. The sealed compartment and stable design also allowed for easy recovery if they flipped over. This was extremely important due to the frigid arctic waters they were used in. With kayaking having become widely popular across the globe, kayak designs have changed dramatically, while also retaining their lightweight and easy to maneuver traits.
You should expect any amount of wind, from a small breeze to a huge gust, to have some effect on your kayak. This is normal, and you can readily compensate for it. To conserve energy, paddle with the wind and not into it if you can. You can also paddle harder, use a rudder or add an extra stroke to your downwind side in order to make adequate wind corrections.
The traditional kayak has a covered deck and one or more cockpits, each seating one paddler. The cockpit is sometimes covered by a spray deck that prevents the entry of water from waves or spray, differentiating the craft from a canoe. The spray deck makes it possible for suitably skilled kayakers to roll the kayak: that is, to capsize and right it without it filling with water or ejecting the paddler.
