Wildlife Viewing


An exciting part of a kayak trip is seeing wildlife. Typically, the best times to view wildlife are sunrise or sunset. Also, kayaking at low tide provides an excellent opportunity for bird watching, as they are usually feeding along the exposed banks.

Kayaking is a quiet way to get close to wildlife without frightening them. Quiet paddling combined with right timing will increase one’s chances of viewing wildlife. Happy Paddling!

Don’t be so focused on the destination that you miss out on the joy of the journey.
