About Kayaking and Canoeing

If you haven't yet tried kayaking or canoeing, then Puducherry is just the place for you to experience these activities. The best thing about both these activities is they are equally enjoyable for both beginners and experts. The degree of thrill in these activities depend on the roughness of water and the rapids. In Puducherry, you will find both options, as there are places with perfectly calm waters, and then there are waters that are extremely difficult and challenging. The best place in Puducherry to experience kayaking and canoeing is the Karaikal Beach, which not only has all the facilities for these activities but is also a beautiful and pleasant place to spend some special moments at.

Historical Context: The origin of kayaks dates back thousands of years ago, and were created by Arctic inhabitants known as Intuits. The early kayak frames were created using driftwood, and wrapped with sealskins. They were primarily used for hunting, which is indicative by the term 'kayaking' as kayak means hunter's boat.
