What age can a kid start kayaking?
While any age child can participate in a tandem boat with a qualified partner, kids from seven to ten years old are at an ideal age to learn to kayak in their own boat.
Can I kayak with my baby?
Kayaks are not practical with a baby. Rafts can haul lots of gear and people but are slow, heavy, and often have standing water on the floor, which means no dry place for an infant to hang out other than in your arms. Canoes, on the other hand, are practically made for babies.
What month can you start kayaking?
Most people find that late spring to early summer is the best time to go kayaking. By this point in the year, the weather is generally warm enough to not have to bundle up, but it isn’t so hot that you have to worry about keeping cool either.
How long do kayaks last?
That having been said, with normal usage, with not picking up the bow and dragging the kayak over hard surfaces, with taking care around oyster reefs, with tying down the kayak adequately when transporting it, with storing it in the shade, it should be about as good as new in 10 years.
