Canoeing and Kayaking are water sports, be prepared to get wet while getting into and out of the boats. Please wear appropriate attire.
Although flip-flops are great to get wet, we DO NOT recommend them for paddling. We suggest strap in sandals or even water shoes for better grip. We will have flip-flops available for once you finish your adventure.
