Kayaking is a recreational activity in which individuals can experience the outdoors and get an excellent cardiovascular workout. Kayaking can be done almost anywhere and is easily adapted to various ability levels. The American Canoe Association (ACA) promotes the benefits of canoeing and kayaking while offering courses on the basics of paddling, safety and rescue courses, and instructor certification.
