A: No, you don't need to have that but good to be comfortable with water and with any water-based activity.

Q: Can my child join me if he/she is under 8 years old?

A: Sorry, unfortunately we cannot take any participant younger than 8 years old. And if the child is under 12 years old, parent or an adult guardian must accompany the child on the same kayak.

Q: Can we wear slippers for this activity?
