We use all types of kayaks dependent upon the adventure. Typically we use our tandem sea kayaks for beginner and recreational tours because the are stable, comfortable, warm, dry, and efficient. We use single kayaks for our rock gardening, enthusiast, and advanced level tours and classes.
On our Kayaking ROCKS!!! adventure we use sit-on-top whitewater kayaks because it is a wet and wild adventure. Whitewater kayaks(sit inside) are also available with prior proper training.
For our other tours, we use the type of kayaks that you "sit inside." We use these because they are warmer, faster, drier, and more efficient. These boats are more stable than most sit-on-top kayaks and a capsize on our recreational level adventures is highly unlikely. In the event of a capsize, paddlers come out of the boat just like they would if they capsized a sit-on-top kayak.
Paddlers enrolling in our enthusiast level adventures need to have self-rescue and buddy rescue skills, and paddlers participating in performance level adventures need to have a reliable eskimo roll.
