In recent years kayaking has grown in popularity with both residents and those taking a vacation in Bermuda. It enables exploration of secluded coves and, because they are almost silent, allows close-up contact with the island’s wildlife. Turtles, fish, and birds seem unperturbed by their presence.
The kayaks used in Bermuda are ocean kayaks. They are stable, buoyant and simple to manoeuvre. They are similar to their traditional counterparts, but instead of sitting inside the kayak, you sit on top in a moulded depression. This allows easy entry and exit, means there’s no risk of getting trapped inside, and allows people of all sizes to participate.
