California Kayaking Kayak Rentals - California Sports



California Kayaking is the ideal sport for those seeking exercise, sunshine, and stunning water views not afforded by other means in many of California's elite waterways and channels. Knowing how to swim is a must for taking to the waters in a kayak.

 

If you can swim, you are on your way to a gratifying sport that's not quite as strenuous as rowing a boat (unless you whitewater kayak) and provides many of the benefits. Kayaks are lighter to propel and easier to navigate than larger boats with heavy oars, making them a flexible choice for locations such as channels, harbors and lakes. In California there are around 1000 miles of shoreline kayakers can experience, though some kayaking simply does not work in many west-facing beach locations where the waves can be too turbulent. Ocean kayaking is best experienced in locations such as the Channel Island, Morro Bay, Newport Beach, Huntington Harbour, Shell Beach, San Diego Bay and even Bodega Bay. The water currents in northern California's Pacific Ocean arrive from Alaska and are generally cold waters not as pleasant for kayaking without a wetsuit.  The Alaska current stops at Point Conception near Lompoc and anything south of that tends to be 5 to 10 degrees warmer. There are localized kayak clubs and over 100 sporting goods and kayak specialty rental and sales stores in California.
