Getting Ready For Your Kayaking Adventure

A night glow kayaking tour is a unique way to enjoy the evening in Key West. To prepare for your paddle trip, there are some helpful tips to keep in mind to make your experience the most enjoyable. Considering the following before the trip:

  • Use water shoes – These will provide you more traction when walking compared to flip flops, but they will remain on the dock to avoid scratching the vessel’s plexiglass

  • Wear a glow stick – It is a great way to keep track of your whole party as you paddle through the water.
