 What to Bring

  • A water bottle, sunscreen, sunglasses, and hat are good to bring along. You will be standing in a few inches of water to get in and out of the kayak so bring shoes that you don’t mind getting wet (i.e. strap on sandals or water shoes). Kayaking is a water sport and you will get wet. It is a good idea to bring a change of clothes. Bring some type of waterproof bag to keep your keys and cellphone in or you can rent a dry bag from Mission Kayak for $5.00 on the day of your trip.
