Kayaking in Tortola
Kayaking in Tortola is just about as good as it gets.
Imagine yourself, as a newcomer to handling kayaks,
enjoying one of the host of different bays protected by reefs – remarkably
quiet, incredibly scenic, perhaps surrounded by parrotfish - and learning your
skills, before moving on, ready to challenge the more open water.
||Novices can revel in the enjoyment of many bays, perfectly
protected by the reefs outside them. Or, as an experience handler of kayaks,
just think for a while of the thrill of sea kayaking to different islands,
where you can relax on the beach, savor some fantastic sea food, and then
paddle back again.
Using the prevailing winds and currents, you can paddle from island to
island enjoying the spectacular sunsets from your view from the sea.
Sea kayaks, less maneuverable than their whitewater
counterparts but built for greater comfort and easier straight-line paddling,
can be hired at many places in and around Road Town – Marina Cay, Boardsailing
BVI, Last Stop Sports at Nanny’s Cay Red Shed are just a few examples. The
kayaks for hire will be fiberglass, with foot-controlled rudders and you’ll be
able to get any necessary safety equipment such as towing lines, pumps, repair
kits, spare paddles and cell phones. There are one, two and even a few three
person kayaks available. You might also want to think about joining a
mini-expedition with other kayaks- this might be a more secure way of trying
your first open water crossings if you’ve not tried one before.
