A kayak is a canoe-like boat which is prompted to move forward in water by a double-bladed paddle. It is a small vessel with a cockpit, where kayakers or participants settle themselves and paddle their way through the water. Kayaking is a great activity to pump up some adrenaline and explore the pristine waters of a lake or a river.
Yes, it is absolutely safe to do kayaking in Dandeli. In fact, Dandeli is the only place in South India that offers advanced courses on kayaking. It is also one of the top activities to do in Dandeli. Tourists are guided by well-trained professionals, who also provide introductory sessions on basic techniques and stroke and a demo, before hitting the pristine waters of River Kali.
Before anything else, one needs to find a good place for kayaking. This sports activity is done best in calm waters of a lake or a river. Once you find the place, gently slide your kayak into the water and hold it from the back, so it doesn’t stir away. Once it’s half into the water, keep one foot in the cockpit and other foot on the ground. Once you attain stability, slip into the cockpit, sit firmly against the seatback and settle your feet into the foot pegs. Now, use your paddles to move past the incoming waters.
The average cost of kayaking in Dandeli ranges between INR 250 and INR 300 per person. However, the charges of the activity are set independently by the tourist/travel company you have chosen or hired. Thus, they vary from company-to-company. Many companies also include charges of transportation to the adventure spot. Kayaking is also included in many tour packages as a part of the itinerary, in which case, no extra charges are added to the activity.
The best time to visit Dandeli for kayaking is between October and January. The water gushes in abundance and the weather is quite pleasant at this time as well. Your skin stays protected from the scorching summer heat and the touch of cold water at the time of kayaking is quite healing as well.
Every kayak has a weight limit. A single kayak has a weight limit of 300 pounds, that is, 136 kg. A tandem kayak has a weight limit of 600 pounds, that is, 273 kg. The hip size of the participant also has a limit for kayaking. If you have a hip wider than 55 inches, you aren’t suitable for kayaking.
Usually, one or two people can go kayaking at one time. However, the maximum number of people who can go for kayaking in one time depends on the model. One kayak can be paddled by one person. Tandem kayaks can carry two people. Three kayaks offer space for three people. Four kayaks are quite rare to find in Dandeli.
