I have always wanted to go kayaking, but I am just not flexible enough or have a good enough sense of balance to sit in a kayak. I tried in college, but I kept flipping over and could not rotate back upright. But, I discovered http://www.congresskayaks.com, and now I have some place to try kayaking.
They have kayaks that you sit on instead of in. Now these are craft that I can be on comfortably and maneuver around water without losing my balance or direction. They do have traditional sit in kayaks, but they just do not work for me. They also have lessons on both, every day of the year at eleven in the morning.
