San Diego, California is widely known for all the area has to offer. There are an abundance of activities and events for visitors to add to their vacation itinerary, especially when it comes to watersports.
Watersports might be one of the most popular past times for visitors and locals in San Diego. The year-round, moderate temperature makes it easy to spend the day on the water learning to kayak, surf or stand-up paddle board (SUP) - to name a few.
While there’s definitely plenty of outdoor activities to choose from, kayaking is perfect for families, groups of friends or individuals to partake in. Kayaking has been around for centuries and was primarily used for fishing, hunting and transportation. Now, the activity has become a thrilling way for people to explore rivers, lakes, bays and oceans.
A kayak is similar to a canoe except they are generally lighter, trimmer and easier. Both use a paddle to propel it forward. Kayaks are a particularly convenient and accessible way to explore areas like San Diego Bay, Mission Bay and La Jolla.
There are typically two options to choose from: one seat kayaks and tandem (two seat) kayaks. Choosing the right kayak will be contingent on your personal preference. In addition, there are different kayaks available for sea kayaking, long distance tours, fishing, whitewater and rivers.
Kayaking in San Diego is the perfect combination of exploring the outdoors, creating new memories and getting moderate exercise. One of the best things about kayaking is that all skill levels can participate.
