I’m going on my first kayaking trip on Feb. 11 in Key West.
I called the kayak rental company where we’ll be renting from and they said that the max their kayaks can hold is 250lbs.
I’m about 230lbs. Is this pushing it? I won’t have any heavy gear. Just a bookbag with binoculars, maps, cellphone and light snacks.
should be fine
You should be fine.
Assuming that the kayaks …
are the big barge sit on tops that they rent all up and down the Keys; go for it and have fun.
I see heavy weights in them almost every day
not sure, I’m renting from Lazy Dog, not sure what kind of kayak they use.
Just call and ask. When we went on a guided trip in Alaska they said their max was 240. My husband is 6’5" and 250 so I called to make sure he would fit in a boat! They put us in a tandem - was funny b/c they put him in front with more legroom and I was in charge of the rudder Will likely never paddle a tandem again.
And bring a waterproof bag
for the maps, etc.
