EquipmentKayaks – All the kayaks are imported new from the manufacturer in South Africa. They are designed specifically for use in the temperatures and coastal waters of Africa. Due to the warm temperatures of the Lamu Archipelago all kayaks are sit-on-top touring kayaks with no splash skirts or hot neoprene covers. As well as reducing the heat otherwise created under a splash cover, sit-on-top kayaks allow easy exit/entry whilst snorkelling or swimming, do away with the need for technical rolls and provide freedom of movement when fishing or taking pictures.
Tandem kayaks are preferred allowing paddlers to better match strengths, improving energy efficiency and making it easier for paddlers to enjoy the surroundings. For more experienced paddlers there is the option of a solo kayak or solo fishing kayak. Each kayak has deck webbing, hatches for storing masks, cameras, snacks, etc and rod holders. It is not necessary for paddlers to be experienced or super fit, the general rule is that if you are fit enough to swim and have no debilitating injuries you will be able to paddle.
