Kayaking is a popular activity in San Diego, and it's no wonder, with so many beaches and bays offering ideal conditions for gliding along in the water. If you're visiting San Diego and want to try kayaking for the first time, you'll find plenty of kayaking rentals and lessons available throughout San Diego. If you're visiting La Jolla, you can launch a kayak from La Jolla Shores Beach, explore the seven La Jolla caves, paddle next to sea lions at La Jolla Cove, and swim above leopard sharks off the coast.
Today's modern kayaks are made of molded polyethylene resin and are much smaller and stronger than the kayaks first built by the Eskimos 4,000 years ago. Those early kayaks were built of animal skins, whalebones, and wood and were used for hunting in the northern oceans, rivers, and lakes. Eventually kayaks were manufactured out of fiberglass, then rubberized fabric, then plastic, allowing them to be more resilient and easier to maneuver. Kayaks have one to two seats with a double-bladed paddle, not to be confused with a canoe, which has a single-bladed paddle.
