Kayaking in Jupiter with others can be even more fun.
Come get involved and take part.
But always remember:You are responsible for yourself.
The Jupiter Kayaking Group is open to anyone who wants to kayak as a novice or expert, is new to the sport or simply interested in learning how to kayak. Our group is open to every experience level. after all, we were all beginners at some point :)
Outings are planned by our organizers. If you have a favorite place to paddle, please join us and share your idea with the groups organizer. Word of mouth is one of the greatest ways for us to all learn about new places to adventure out to!
When you meet up with us, you alone are responsible for your safety. Kayaking can be dangerous. Become aware of the dangers of wind, waves, currents, wakes from big boats, sun and heat. Make sure you have a personal flotation device with you. A whistle and flares are good in case you need to get attention to get help. Take food, water and sun block. Be ready to turn back if you no longer feel comfortable in a situation. No other person knows better what your limits are than you. Realize that risk can’t be eliminated totally. Storms with strong winds, big waves and driving rain can develop quickly. Pay attention to changes in the weather and head for shore where you can wait safely until it has passed. Being out a long way from shore is risky because kayaks can’t travel quick enough to get to shore when a storm develops. For that reason it is always safest to paddle fairly close to shore so that it can be reached in just a couple minutes if necessary.
~Hope to see you at an event soon...Happy Paddling!
