Whether you are an experienced kayaker or a beginner, there are some things to take into consideration before start your kayak adventure. Here are some kayak tour tips to help you have the perfect Desoto Kayak Tour.
The sun does not distinguish between a local or visitor to our area. Everyone can get a sunburn if you don’t take precautions. Especially since you will be on the water which can reflect the sunrays making it even more intense. So apply a high SPF sunscreen before you embark on your kayak trip.
You can get some added sun protection with a hat and sunglasses. These items can also help you see better by reducing the glare. Both will make it easier to see fish, sea stars, jelly fish, turtles, manatees, and dolphins in the water.
Getting into your kayak will require you to step into the water. Consequently, you should wear a pair of water shoes or any shoes you don’t mind getting wet. Remember to also bring a dry pair of shoes to wear after your kayaking adventure.
In addition to the dry shoes, bring some dry clothes. While it should be a fairly dry experience, your paddle will be going in and out of the water which will result in water dripping into your kayak. You may also get wet if you want to explore the sandbar.
Water, water everywhere but none to drink. It is going to be hot and you are going to be actively rowing. So it is important to stay hydrated. Bring water with you preferably in a reusable bottle. If you do bring a plastic bottle, make sure you take it with you after the tour.
On the kayak tour, you will experience a magnificent Emerson Point ecosystem and wildlife. Make you you bring your camera or cellphone to capture the adventure. Also bring a zipper plastic bag to protect your camera, cellphone, and personal items from getting wet.
We hope these kayak tour tips make your tour a safe and memorable experience.
