What to Bring on a RKC Kayak Tour

Riverside Kayak Connection tours will provide each paddler with the appropriate gear for your tour, including the appropriate kayak for the tour and your size, a personal flotation device (PFD), paddle and safety gear. RKC requires all paddlers to wear a properly fitted PFD and keep it zipped up at all times. REMEMBER: Kayaking is a water sport and there is always a chance for getting wet, please see the guidelines below for what you should and should not bring with you on your tour.

Riverside Kayak Connection will provide:

  • Kayak appropriate for the tour and your body type/size.

  • Coast Guard approved PFD with whistle.

  • Paddle appropriate for kayak and your size.

Recommended Items:

  • Appropriate clothing for weather conditions (i.e. quick drying, synthetic materials are best). Cotton and/or denim are not appropriate for paddle sports, as they do not dry quickly.

  • Change of clothes kept in a dry bag in case you get wet and want to change after the paddle.

  • Shoes that can get wet, we recommend water shoes without straps or laces.

  • Hat for sun protection, one with a wide brim is best.

  • Sunglasses, polarized are best for on the water and something to keep them afloat if they fall overboard.

  • Sunscreen and protective lip balm.

  • Hand wipes or sanitizer.

  • Water bottle and snacks if you get hungry with activity.

  • Waterproof camera.

What NOT to bring:

  • Cell phones or other electronics that cannot get wet.

  • Jewelry

  • Wallets or purses

  • ANYTHING of value that cannot get wet that you MUST bring should be stored in a waterproof container, such as a Pelican Case or dry bag (plastic bags are not recommended to keep your valuables dry).
