Kayak Rentals - Lake Norman NC
Posted by: old_user on Jul-26-09 7:57 PM (EST) Category: Kayaks
My wife and I are interested in trying out kayaking. We are in the Charlotte area and will actually be around Lake Norman for a couple of weeks with the inlaws this August. Thought that might be a good time to try to find a place to rent a kayak for a short while to see if we like it. I did see a post for Latta Plantation which looks interesting and we've been to the US White Water Center and rafted (ran out of time before we could kayak, darn it!). I've been seeing some great opportunities on the various rivers around but was just curious about Norman since we'll be there. If we like it, I'm sure I'll be checking this site for ideas on kayaks to buy -- or at least avoid. Thanks in advance.

I suggest going to a kayak guide and instructional place and putting yourself in their hands for a day. You are much more likely to get properly set up in boats, to get important tips, and to be shown some nice river or estuarine scenery. They may be able to help you get clear on whether you want to try rec kayaks or touring/sea kayaks.

Appreciate your advice. Makes sense, especially if we want to be sure not to get turned off.
