Preparing and Packing for a Kayaking Trip
We want to make your preparations as easy as possible. Here are some of the things we do to make that possible.
Pre-Trip Information: We provide each guest with the most thorough trip information in the adventure travel business. It covers every part of your preparation: what to bring, a reading list, your travel and hotel plans and every other question you might have. We also provide an extensive field guide to the area you will be traveling through. Our field guides cover the natural and cultural history of the areas, descriptions of plants and animals you may encounter, and much more.
Packing: Packing is Easy. We provide you with all the waterproof dry bags you need, and premium quality rain gear, too. With Kayak Crusades, there is no need to spend time and money shopping for these expensive items.
