Also, the kayak itself can serve as a durable platform where one can jump into the river and enjoy a quick swim.

Don’t Forget Safety When Kayaking

Since you are traveling and kayaking with the family, it pays to incorporate the safety of everyone in the plan. If you are with kids, you may want to include life jackets into the bag.

If yes, there are kayaks designed for dogs.  Also called a tandem kayak, this is best for a couple, or an individual who wants to enjoy the waters with his dog.
