Getting Wet/Tipping Over
Q. Will I get wet?
A. Not necessarily but it's always a possibility. In Moss Landing we use closed deck kayaks and provide you with a spray skirt that covers the cockpit and helps keep water out. In Santa Cruz if you rent a sit on top kayak you are a little more exposed but are wearing a wetsuit so if you get splashed or sprayed it's no big deal! Always bring extra clothes just in case.
Q. Will I tip over?
A. A capsize is a rare occurrence because our kayaks are very stable. Many people that rent have never been in a kayak before and have little or no problem maneuvering and don't capsize. Our safety video and staff will help with tips on how not to capsize.
Remember you can tip over but you can never over "tip" your instructor or guide!
