The earliest kayaks were created a few thousand years ago by Eskimos who sometimes used the skeleton of a whale to create the frame which they covered with animal skin and were used while hunting. Today, the textile of choice for kayaks can be metal, fiberglass, wood, plastic, and occasionally rubber, and kayaking is a sport with over 10 different events in the Olympics. St. Simons Island kayaking, however, is a special adventure and will hook you from the first moment your paddle hits the water. You can book a tour that lasts anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days or you can rent the equipment yourself and explore the waters around St. Simons Island on your own terms; whichever route you choose, you will be glad you chose St. Simons Island to be your launching pad.
