Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving over water. … A kayak is a low-to-the-water, canoe-like boat in which the paddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation.

It’s great adventure sport for recreation, and being in touch with nature again. Apart from refreshing your mood it’s a great exercise and burns your calories too.

Just like kayaking, canoeing is also a similar water sport with some difference. In a kayak, the paddler is seated and uses a double-bladed paddle pulling the blade through the water on alternate sides to move forward. In a canoe, the paddler kneels and uses a single-bladed paddle to propel the boat forward.
