Newcomers receive an all-encompassing lesson about sea kayaking, from choosing the right vessel to safety precautions to basic navigation. Participants should avoid wearing cotton clothing, as it will get wet, and should bring a change of clothes, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, water, and snacks.

Salem Kayak

The first swish of the paddle when seated inside one of Salem Kayak's vessels unlocks a whole new world. That simple act of water displacement can take a person to nearby islands, into the nesting places of seagulls, or down the treelined banks of the Danver's River. Salem Kayak's location on Winter Island Maritime Park grants easy access to all of these destinations, which guides and groups explore on eight different tours.

Of course, people need to master the basics before they can chart their own aquatic adventures. Salem Kayak has that covered as well. Their instructors lead classes for complete beginners, which cover every step, from choosing the right gear (recreational or ocean kayaks), to basic navigation, to problem solving while out on the water. From there, paddlers can move on to the elements of forward and backwards strokes, or learn to navigate around the large rocks that Mother Nature placed by the shore for safe-keeping.
