The planet is full of stunning places that you can go kayaking. Maybe some other day if you‘re fortunate to visit these kayaking destinations, you’ll discover how cool these places are.

If you don’t know what kayaking is; kayaking is the use of a kayak to move across the water. It differs from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle.

Let’s have a look at the best destinations in the world that you can have your best kayaking.

1) Sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico

Sea of Cortez is best for you; it grants you chances to spot abundant wildlife. It has the most diverse aquatic life in the world just for you. In addition, it’s ideal for kayaking trips because it creates a desert landscape and sandy beaches that you’d love.

Imagine how interesting it is to go for kayaking trips in the youngest sea in the world? Perhaps you should have a grip on it.

Sea of Cortez came as a result of volcanic activities and earthquakes of unbelievable magnitudes. While the volcanoes and the faults were violently creating the Baja Peninsula, the rift that eventually became the sea of Cortez was also formed. This might be a good reason for you to have an experience with the volcanic escarpments too.

2) Amazon River, South America

Amazon is the longest river in the world. The area is populated by wildlife and rainforest, therefore kayaking during the day and night can yield some dubious animal sights.

The Amazon rainforest is the home to thousands of species of wildlife and plants. Exploring the river by kayak is, therefore, one of the most adventurous ways to visit this region and know the local cultures of the people who live along this awesome river.

Spend days kayaking along the river, passing villages of indigenous people and spotting exotic wildlife.

3) Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Vancouver Island is located off the coast of Canada in the Pacific Ocean. It has many inlets and collection of seas to navigate along the coast making this area perfect for both day trips and extended trips.  This region is one of the world’s top destination for kayaking because of its many small islands, protected water, passageways, wildlife and sense of remoteness.
