 Canoeing & Kayaking

Canoeing and kayaking are considered as one of the fastest growing outdoor activities. It allows you to socialize with friends and family while exploring new places like lakes and rivers as you relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

Both are water based activities that involve paddling and rowing a small craft through water using your own power. There isn't much difference between the two.

CANOES

Canoes are open vessels where the person sits or kneels inside the boat and uses a single bladed paddle to propel the canoe through the water.

Boating & Rafting

It has generally been described that the difference between boating and rafting is that a boat you ride in and it goes where you want it to, while a raft you ride on and it goes where it wants to.

 

Rafting involves the use of an inflatable raft to navigate a fast flowing river. This is often called white water rafting and involves the use of double bladded paddles. White water rafting is an exciting and thrilling adventure but with all water based sports there are risks involved.

This is where professional white water guides come in. Their priority is your safety and they are trained to minimize and manage any risk associated with your white water rafting adventure.

Everyone that participates in a white water rafting trip will be required to wear a personal floatation device or life vest in the off chance that you fall out of the raft. This will keep you afloat until you reach land or are rescued. If you do happen to find yourself in the water keep a clear head and don't panic. The vest will keep you afloat. Just drift with the current and gradually make you way towards the bank.

If you are fortunate enough to participate in one of these exciting white water rafting adventures you need to dress for the particular time of year and the water temperature.

In the warmer or hot months you would get by with shorts, a shirt and a pair of running shoes, however during the cooler months, especially when the water is cold, you might look at a wetsuit and jacket.

Both rafting and boating can also be known as a recreational activity which take place on lakes and rivers.

Beach Hazard 1 - Rip Currents

What are rips or rip currents. When waves break, the water is pushed up the beach. Once the water reaches the shoreline it has to find a way to recede back out to sea, and it does this by into deeper channels. These channels are called rip currents.

So, how can you spot these deeper channels or rip currents.

Rip currents occur in deeper water, so it is normally a darker colour compared to the rest of the breaking waves. Because the water is deeper, there will be fewer breaking waves.

Rip currents are dangerous if you fight the current and try to swim back to shore. This can often lead to drowning because the swimmer becomes exhausted and panics. If you get caught in a rip stay calm and just float to conserve your energy. A rip current will not pull you under the water. All you need to do is raise and wave your arm to attract the lifeguards attention.

Beach Hazard 2 - Sharks

There are many types of sharks. The majority are harmless to humans however there are some tips to minimize your chances of encountering a shark.

  • Never swim at river mouths or in murky discoloured water
  • Never swim at dusk or dawn
  • Never swim where there are schools of baitfish around
  • Always swim between the flags so that lifeguards can alert you to any potential danger

Water Polo

 

Water Polo is a sport contested in the pool by two teams of seven players which includes a goal keeper. The aim is to score goals by throwing the ball into the opponents goal.

Water polo is played in a pool 30 metres long by 20 metres wide over four periods of seven minutes with the clock being stopped every time the referee blows the whistle. Players pass the ball around between team mates but must shoot for goal within 35 seconds of gaining possession. They must catch the ball with one hand only.

Water polo is a vigorous contact sport which allows the defenders to push, hold or impede the player with the ball. If they do this to a player without the ball they commit a foul. Attacking players are off side if they are within 2 metres of the goal when the ball is not.

Snorkeling Beginner Tips

If you are thinking about getting involved in snorkeling for the first time, the following tips and advice would be worth following:

  • Spend a bit more and rent or buy a dry snorkel. A dry snorkel has a special valve that shuts when your snorkel goes under water.
  • Get a mask that is a good fit so that it does not leak. Masks come in different shapes and sizes. The best tip is to hold the mask to your face and breathe in through your nose. If the mask seals and stays in place without you holding it, then its a fit.
  • Fins are an essential part of your snorkeling equipment. They give you a tremendous amount of swimming force as well as saving you a lot of energy. Choose a set of fins that fit you comfortably without being too tight. They will fit on easier once your feet are wet.
  • Learn how to defog your mask so that you will be able to see better.
  • Practice first. Find a swimming pool or a shallow beach so that you can get used to using your new equipment. It takes a while to get used to breathing through a snorkel with your face in the water.
  • Once you have practiced and become accustomed to your equipment you will find that you will have an enjoyable experience

Safety Precautions

  • Always have two in the boat. One as the driver and the other as an observer to keep an eye on the skier or wake boarder.
  • Always wear a life jacket. This includes the people in the boat. You never know what could happen out on the water so it is better to be prepared for the unprepared.
  • Avoid crowded areas which is an obvious safety tip but if there are other boats and skiers in the area you need to allow enough room for safe passing.
  • Do not ski or wakeboard in confined or shallow waters. Water skiing requires a lot of open water.
  • Check the weather for adverse conditions. If the wind gets up the water could become rough or choppy whereas heavy rain can affect visibility.
