Canoeing is an activity developed thousands of years ago by Native Americans. Historically, trees that had fallen were hollowed out and used to float down a river, lake or stream for transportation, fishing, or gathering food. Today canoeing is a great way to explore a body of water and has been established as an Olympic sport.

Canoes typically differ from kayaks in the sense that they are completely open and often take two people using one sided paddles. On a glassy lake canoeing is a calm activity where as canoeing down Class III rapids can be quite challenging.

Kayaking, similar to canoeing, is considered to be a form of paddling. Kayaking is often done on white water rapids and has been established as an Olympic sport. Kayaking involves a person sitting in the kayak facing forward with their legs extended. Most kayaks feature ‘closed decks’ that seal the kayaker in the boat for added security. Kayaking, unlike canoeing, uses a ‘double bladed’ paddle. Sea kayaking and ocean kayaking are popular while more leisurely derivatives of the sport and can be fantastic ways for exploring the open water.
