What Should YOU Bring?

How far do you plan on kayaking? Should you be on the water for hours, consider bringing small snacks and water for the trip. Kayaking demands a lot from your body, especially if working against any current or tide. Only risk getting stuck with enough energy to get back!

Bring a cell phone. Cell service exists for a few miles into the water, so you will be fine calling for help if something happens or you stray too far, no matter where you wander. Just be sure your phone can handle getting wet, has a full charge, or you have a waterproof case for it. Bonus? You can take beautiful pictures of wildlife, scenery, and your adventures to review for years to come!

Ensuring your safety while kayaking is paramount, regardless of your chosen location. Even in the tranquil waters of Key Largo, where serenity abounds, the occasional motorboat activity can create unexpected waves that pose challenges, even for seasoned kayakers. Wearing a life-saving vest or jacket is a non-negotiable precautionary measure. In unforeseen circumstances, this buoyancy device can be the critical difference between life and peril. Why take unnecessary risks during your Keys adventure?

Specifically designed for physical activities like kayaking, specific vests are more suitable for wear on the water. Whether you inquire about available vests at the launch area or bring your own, prioritizing safety through these essential flotation devices is a responsible choice. Embracing this precaution ensures you can fully enjoy the beauty of your kayaking experience in Key Largo while minimizing potential risks and enhancing overall peace of mind.

Suggested Stops
