Cape Ann has over 50 miles of coastline that continually calls out to kayakers and other water enthusiasts to paddle and explore. Getting outside and experiencing new things while on vacation is always a goal of most families.
Atlantic Vacation Homes makes achieving this goal easy with watercraft rentals. Guests can rent kayaks and Stand-Up Paddle Boards (SUPs) for a minimum of 6 days when visiting and each rental fee includes FREE delivery and pick-up. Offering the best quality in recreational SUPs and Multi-Channel Hull Kayaks, Atlantic Vacation Homes will help get you and your family out on the water in no time.
EXPLORING THE AREA:
Have you ever been kayaking at home or even at a different destination? We can tell you that kayaking is one of our guests’ favorite things to do. Whether you have brought your kayak or you’re renting one, the time you spend on the water may become your favorite thing to do.
You will find that many of our waterfront properties will allow you and the family to put your kayak into the water. Having access so close to where you will be staying will allow more time outside and have the time of your lives.
If you aren’t staying in a waterfront property, then you will be happy to know we have a few places where you can go to put in your kayak around town.
For the more experienced kayaker in the group, sea kayaking may be of more interest. Spring and Fall are great times to paddle, but the cold water temperatures encountered during those seasons make paddling a bit more challenging so make sure you are well layered up. When heading out for a paddle in the open water always use good judgment.
Best practices when looking to set up a sea kayaking trip are to evaluate the group’s skills. Can everyone in the group?
- Navigate using tide tables, nautical charts and a compass
- Read channel markers and buoys
- Follow nautical “rules of the road”
- Properly use a marine VHF radio
- Obtain marine weather forecasts and “read” the weather on the water.
A very family-friendly activity that you can do while you are on vacation in Cape Ann is paddleboarding. This is another on-the-water activity that is excellent exercise and fun for the whole family. Whether you have been paddleboarding before or not, the laughs are too much to handle at times.
