Equipment List for Kayaking
Over the years, I have answered many questions about the gear needed for kayaking. Unfortunately some guests have found out the hard way that you can get cold when paddling in Florida on the Cedar Key Kayaking Trip or that cotton sweatshirts on our Everglades Trip are not the best choice.
Realistically, all you need is a kayak, paddle and PFD (personal flotation device). However, when you advance beyond being a recreational kayaker and/or want to understand more about safety gear and essentials the list gets a little longer. Some paddlers do take it a little too far, (you know who you are...) buying every gadget and gizmo that comes out. But the list below should work as an outline for everyone and you can take or leave whatever interests you.
