If you want to explore the area by boat then paddling a kayak is a great way to do it. This is a popular water sport that just about anyone can do. It’s peaceful and it’s relaxing yet you can get a gentle upper body workout at the same time. Yes, it’s exercise as well as fun! If you’ve experienced calm water kayaking and white water kayaking you will find that ocean kayaking is a combination of the two. When you’re looking for where to rent kayaks look no further than this blog post!
Renting a kayak and heading out for an afternoon is a great way to explore the local rivers and other waterways. If the big ocean is more than you want to tackle, at least initially, then check out the Intracoastal Waterway and the local rivers. There’s a lot of exploring you can do and if you enjoy nature, be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife that might be lounging along the shoreline.
