Ocean Kayaking - The Ultimate Challenge in Exploring the Waters

When you think of kayaking, you probably think of a relaxing journey through calm and tranquil waters aboard a small canoe-like boat. This is what kayaking is all about for the most part, but for those looking for a challenge and excitement, there's ocean kayaking. Generally speaking, ocean kayaking is at times comparable to white water rafting. Not in regards to equipment, but speed and level of activity. Therefore, ocean kayaking is typically left to those who are very experienced in the water.

Canada is an excellent location to experience the ultimate ocean kayaking. Known for its scenic beauty and natural appeal, Canada provides everything needed for your journey along the ocean. Starting at the Ucluelet Harbour along the northwest coast, you will have the chance to see some of Canada's most precious wildlife. Black bears are often spotted fishing along the shore line, and sea lions call out to you as if to say "hello" as you pass by. You'll also pass through some breathtaking waterfalls in this area (be prepared to paddle harder!) and see some historic houses and fishing boats along the shore. Barkley Sound provides an excellent opportunity for spotting unique aquatic animals, such as seahorses, sea stars, sand dollars, and natural sponges. Barkley Sound is full of mini-islands to explore, and often eagles, river otters, and sometimes whales can be viewed in this area.

Elk, California is another ideal location to experience the excitement of ocean kayaking. Here, you can paddle your way through the waters of the Pacific Ocean and explore hidden sea caves and small beaches to get a good look at some amazing wildlife. Whales are known to peep out of the water as kayaks pass through and you'll have the chance to visit with some other unique marine life. Stop for a break on the secluded beaches along Elk's coastline, and experience fishing for shellfish right from your own kayak.

If you're traveling to Hawaii, Kona is one of the best places to explore the ocean through kayaking. Here, you can get up close and personal with dolphins, explore the magical, hidden sea caves of Hawaii, and try out snorkeling to see the magnificent creatures that live beneath the water. Make your way through the cliffs of Kuamoo Bay, where you will have the chance to view the sea turtles and manta rays. Follow the shoreline to the sea caves, where you can spot coral gardens and underwater lava tubes. Tropical fish are known to make this location their home, so take advantage of this snorkeling opportunity. Not only is Kona the perfect spot for ocean kayaking, but it's known to have some of the best cliff jumping in Hawaii!

Even if you are not the most experienced in ocean kayaking, you can look for places that offer group tours. You will still need to be in average physical shape, but you can rely on others if the paddling is too much for you. A simple search of the internet will provide you with a list of tour companies and it's recommended that you call in advance to inquire about the physical requirements for ocean kayaking.
