***Basic Kayak Safety Rules***
As with all recreational activities, there is always the possibility of injury or death. Always use common sense and follow safety rules at all times.
Be aware of weather conditions and water temperature. Prepare for changes in weather and the possibility of a capsize. In warm weather, a long sleeve Kayak shirt can provide sun protection.
Beware of off-shore winds that make it difficult to return to shore.
Always follow the boating rules of the area you're in.
Brush up on self-rescue first in calm, warm, shallow water, and again in more extreme conditions.
Most importantly, WEAR YOUR PERSONAL FLOATATION DEVICE. all kayaks have a lifejacket on board.

Stay hydrated. Always bring plenty of boozes, water and food.

HARES: When paddling in a new area, check with the locals regarding currents, shoreline conditions and weather patterns. Plan an "escape" route - an alternative place to get off the water should environmental conditions dictate it.

It is important to check conditions such as weather and tides before going out in your kayak. Whether you are going on a multi-day excursion or just paddling for an afternoon, being aware of current conditions can help you plan a more safe and efficient trip.
