Adaptive Kayaking

An adaptive kayak is a small human-powered boat that traditionally has a covered deck, and one or more cockpits, each seating one paddler who strokes a double-bladed paddle. In a kayak the paddler faces forward, legs in front.
 
The benefits of kayaking for physically or developmentally disabled people are the same as for everyone else - fresh air, exercise, relaxation, appreciation of the flora, fauna, and the music of the paddle.
 
As is the case with all kayakers, disabled individuals must choose the type of kayak that meets their specific needs. The four primary kayak styles are:
  1. sit-on-top or "open decked
  2. sea or "touring
  3. white-water
  4. inflatable
