Do you get wet on a kayak?


Most kayakers always wear a dry top or kayaking cagoule. You will get wet, even if it’s just a little splash from the water surface. Remember even if the air feels warm, the water might be very cold. If there is any chance you might fall in, then dress for the water temperature.
