Why Kayaking is a great sport for all ages
Kayaking is a sport for all ages and abilities. Some people are intimidated by kayaking because they think you need to know how to do an eskimo roll or certain types of advanced paddling. At Pineapple Tours, we use very easy-to-use Sit-on-top Ocean Kayaks, which are super comfortable and stable. All of our kayaks have back rests or seats and are for all sizes and heights (although there are weight limits on kayaks of 250lbs).
The act of kayaking is pretty self explanatory and most people get how to paddle on their first try. We offer two tours on flat, calm water that are for any age and ability. The Mangroves and the Rio Baru are tranquil enough to take a 2 year old or an 80 year old. We paddle very slowly through the waters there , so no exertion is necessary. We also offer double kayaks when there are small children or someone who might need help with paddling. And in the rare case that someone might get tired, we always have a tow rope with our guide, so he can do all the work for you and you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
Obviously, once you take a kayak out into the ocean, things change. The paddling becomes stronger, you have to go through waves, deal with currents, wind, swells, choppiness and sun. But if you are up for the challenge, then you will have memories for a lifetime.
