If you want to enjoy Kochi’s beaches as you bob gently on the Pacific Ocean, then sea kayaking is for you. Sea kayaking is an eco-friendly activity in which you glide across the waves in a small craft using paddles to row. Beginners can easily enjoy this activity by wearing a lifejacket and taking a lesson from an instructor. After practicing in the gentle waters near the beach to learn how to row and recover in the event you capsize, you can then head out to the wider ocean. There are many views to enjoy, from beautiful sandy beaches to rugged shorelines. And if you look down into the clear water you can see table coral and tropical fish in a brilliantly colorful, natural aquarium.
You’ll feel like an adventurer as you leave the gentle waters of the bay for the majesty of the open ocean. Take in a 360° view of the water as you feel the natural forces of waves and sea breezes on your skin. Depending on your course, you can find secret beaches that can’t be reached by car, and circle desert islands. There, instructors will guide you to safe places to swim so you can jump in without worry. With a snorkel, you can even go for a walk in the sea. There are also tours where you can land at secret beaches or desert islands for a light meal or lunch. Kochi is warm all year round, so you can generally go sea kayaking at any time. However, asides from summer, autumn is the best season due to its gentler waves. Beginners, experts, and those in between are bound to have a great time sea kayaking in Kochi’s nature-rich ocean waters.
