Kayaking is moving across water in a canoe-like boat, which is low-to-the-water. You sit on a kayak facing forward and keeping your legs in front. You move forward by pulling front-to-back with the help of a double-bladed paddle.

With kayaks, there are multiple activities that you can enjoy – such as sea kayaking, wilderness exploration, diving, and fishing. All these activities are included in the kayaking packages offered by Hotel Metropole.

However, this is only meant for people who have prior experience in kayaking. First time kayakers are encouraged to take part in assisted kayaking activities where an experienced guide will instruct you on how to move ahead.
