We want to help everyone during this stressful time, and we thought sending a little how-to about one of our favorite pastimes could help. We offer all kinds of watersports, and we have a great staff that makes sure you are safely prepared with knowledge and gear before you set out on the water.

For now since we cannot get together, we are giving you some tips about how to kayak. Kayak is a peaceful experience and a great way to commune with nature. During this time of social distancing we need ways to get out and find peace, we find kayaking a great option. We cannot speak for restrictions outside of Maryland, but kayaking is allowed during the stay-at-home order here in Maryland. For more about activities allowed and restricted, the Maryland DNR put this FAQ sheet together.

Kayaking is pretty basic but some keys to making it more enjoyable:
  • Head into the wind first, this way on the way back the wind will help you once you’re tired.
  • Stay close to the shore line
    • Less boat traffic
    • You can see more sea life, birds,
    • More shallow
  • Things to bring
    • Sunscreen
    • Bottle of water
    • Hat/sun visor
    • Sunglasses
    • A small waterproof bag
    • Water shoes

When we can get together again we offer waterproof phone bags, sunscreen, water, and inexpensive sunglasses at our location.

Paddleboarding can be  a good release, and is another offering we have at our facility, please check out our site so we can all think about the great adventures we can have together when the time is right.
