Transforming Water to Wine: Kayak turns to Wine

Transforming Water to Wine: Kayak turns to Wine

There are many ways you can do a tour. One way of doing it is to take it through kayaking, hitting two birds with the proverbial stone. Who says you can’t enjoy two hobbies at a time?

Wine Tasting and Kayaking

Often, wine tasting and kayaking are separate. Not if you’ve got the two in close proximity with each other, though. Here are some fun things you can expect.

  • Kayaking lessons on the fly. If you’re a first-time kayaker, you’re going to appreciate the lessons they’re going to give. Lessons on how to board a boat and keep moving on the water will be given as well as how to get off.
  • Fun experiences on the rapids. As you travel on the water, you’re going to have different experiences. You’re really going to appreciate the lessons you were given now. You’re going to have to keep safe, and with the lessons, remain safe on the water.
  • Wine tasting. Once you’ve reached the place, wine tasting is one thing you can look forward to. You can also look forward to choosing wines which you can bring on the trip back. Wine orchards always have some for sale.
  • Food and wine. There is also the issue of where you’re going to eat on the trip back. Fortunately, the kayaking trip provides. Wine orchards also have food choices to pair with the wine they’re selling.
  • New friends. If you’re joining the boat group on the fly, expect some new friends after you’ve gone from the wine orchard. You can also expect a much-later return trip if you’ve gone to the orchard earlier.

A Seasonal venture

Wine tasting often happens during the period of February to November. Be prepared to bring fees and the usual dry bag for your gadgets and clothes. Always remember to bring something to keep the sun away from your skin. Just remember your lessons, and you’re going to come away with just a light buzz from the wine tasting.

Kayaking is a lot of fun on its own. The time you spend on water can be used for a lot of things like meditating and relaxing. Did you know, though, that there are a lot of things that use kayaking as only part of a trip?

Here’s a good idea of a few things to be done while kayaking:

  • Walking. Hiking can be done as the reward to a kayaking trip. There’s also the issue of walking to your boat through hiking. In some places, walkways or pathways lead up to the water’s edge. It’s a good way of getting your water legs ready for the trip ahead.
  • Ending up on another trip. There are other things you can do like go sight-seeing different spectacles during or at the end of the trip. Sea animals and scenic routes can be seen at the end of the kayak during these trips.
  • Activities. While walking to your boat can be part of a kayak trip, the walk can be done during the trip, where you kayak to the route first before you proceed to hiking or walking. You could also count other activities like wine-tasting or food and sightseeing on this trip.
  • Tracking. Tracking a coastline on a kayak is another fruitful event to look forward to. There’s also the matter of tracking a river to your destination.
  • Whitewater. Whitewater is only recommended for those who’ve done all they can as a beginner. Once you find yourself more experienced and, therefore, in search of a challenge, this is one of the activities you can do.

There are a lot of other activities you can do once you’re more experienced. You could do a return trip and do all of these things—alone. You can also look forward to discovering more things as you develop more and more into an experienced kayaker.

Tours Done Right: Things you can see Kayaking


Kayaking is a great hobby to undertake. It’s not just because of the exercise or the time spent on the water. Aside from kayaking, you can use the boat to reach places you may have only heard of during talks while you paddle.

The following are some places you can visit while on a kayak:

Bio-luminescence, a surreal experience.

Have you ever experienced creatures that light up the night through natural processes? In some kayaking tours, you’re going to go into the water well through the night. Bio-luminescent creatures take care of the light you’re going to need, and it’s a magical experience.

Cave kayaking

Some places have natural rock formations that put caves on the path of rivers. You can safely kayak through these places only as part of a tour. Only boat through these places if you’re confident of your chances as a kayaker.

Kayaking with Marine creatures

This means you’re going to go either into the sea or into the river. Either way, you’re going to have to look out for the creatures as well. Just stay safe, remember to respect their boundaries, and enjoy the bond you’re going to form with these lovely water creatures.

Quick tours

Kayaking doesn’t have to be an all-day affair. There are places that allow for quick kayaking—usually a three hour experience on the water. This is usually peppered with experiences seeing great scenes, animals, and sea animals.

Two-way tours

There are tours that offer other activities aside from kayaking. Some have events like mountain biking and kayaking, while others use kayaking to reach a place—certain wine orchards, perhaps, or places you can hike to.
