Fun Places to Practice Kayaking in the Dominican Republic

Kayaking is a fun sport, whether you decide to go at it alone, or with family and friends. In the Dominican Republic, most hotels offer kayaking tours for individuals or for groups. Some facilities provide their guests with top-rated kayaking tours.

Kayaks are available for one, two and four passengers.

This fun aquatic activity is easily learned in five minutes.  Once you try it you won’t want to stop rowing!  It is more than easy to fall in love with this refreshing activity.

The kayak is a long and narrow boat, with a compact and maneuverable design.

The passengers sit facing the boat’s forward direction and are handled with the use of paddles.

The term kayak is an Eskimo term, meaning “piece of driftwood.”

It was originally built to fit the owner.  In Eskimo society, minors could only use the kayak when they reached adulthood.

The family built the kayak for its mature son, and held a special ritual to commemorate the event.
