While boating is fun, kayaking in Florida’s pristine waters may just prove to be one of the most unforgettable parts of your trip. Something about being in nature, at one with the wildlife, and gliding (and quietly) gently along the water’s surface, simply can’t be topped by a boat ride. Consider adding a one-hour kayak rental to your day at Fort Lauderdale’s stunning beaches.

Best Boat Club of Fort Lauderdale offers you the chance to take a pristine outing, solo or with the family, in the waters around the rental location at the HYATT Pier 66 hotel. The spot is perfectly situated near the city, but the waters are still teeming with wildlife and ready to be explored by kayak. Stay alert and you will see brightly-colored fish, sting rays, dolphins, sea turtles (if you’re lucky), and there is a good chance that you’ll see a manatee or two—these loveable sea creatures love boats, and often hang out in the warmer waters of harbors and marinas.

This Fort Lauderdale kayak outing is great for experienced kayakers, but is just as suitable for beginners, given the gentle tide and fairly enclosed location. Are you new to kayaking? Here are a few things to know in advance of your trip.

  • Kayaking can feel uncomfortable the first time. You may use muscles in your upper body that don’t normally get a lot of attention, so be sure to stretch out before and after, and don’t be surprised if you’re a little sore the next day (even if you don’t seem to be exerting yourself during the trip).
  • Be sure to get a paddle that suits your needs. Long paddles give you an easier stroke, and are probably better-suited to the kind of kayaking you’ll be doing around Fort Lauderdale.
  • Instead of only using your arms to steer the vessel, try to engage your shoulder and back muscles during each stroke to avoid muscle fatigue and to get a more even movement.
  • Do be safe. Err on the side of caution by wearing your lifejacket, and taking care to stay within the recommended kayak route. Also do remember to wear your sunblock, or you may find that the Florida sun will quickly ruin your vacation (even if you don’t feel it until the next day). Bring drinking water with you on board, and drink it. You’ll be in the sun, and can become dehydrated without even realizing it.

Note: These Kayaks are two-seaters, which can be used by one or two people. Per person price is the same for one or two people in a boat.
