Basic Kayak Safety
To assist paddlers make informed decisions about their personal sea kayaking trips on the Isle of Man.
Key Message from the RNLI:
Check wind, weather and tides.
Check kit, Check energy levels, Check ability.
Wear a Buoyancy Aid and dress appropriately.
Paddle in company and tell someone where you are going.
Carry a means of calling for help / communicating a delay.
Get training if required.
In a situation – stay with your craft. It’s much easier to spot a kayak than a head in the water.
