Discover Yap by kayak and enjoy a half or better yet a full day, unique experience in the diverse mangrove systems of Yap. This is the perfect way to explore one of the few ecosystems on this planet that remains untouched by man.
Among the mangroves, you will go where none can go but by kayak. There are no roads, no way to bring a powered boat in, and no habitation, there is but you and nature.
See some of the wild birdlife endemic to Yap. See some of the wild birdlife endemic to Yap with our knowledgeable Concierge staff. The staff will not only share with you their wealth of knowledge about the Yapese people and their folklore but as well as the uniqueness of the Yapese culture. If you bring a snorkel, you might even get a chance to observe the archerfish as it spits jets of water several feet into the overhanging vegetation to know down insects.
Our Perception kayaks combine great performance with generous storage capacity. The upswept hull design provides for speed and gives smooth and predictable handling and directional stability in rough conditions. Perception kayaks are considered the best sea kayaks in the world.
Our current kayak fleet consists of 9 single and 4 double kayaks. They all have adjustable seats, thigh straps, and footpegs. The 4 double kayaks have rudders which make steering easier.
Our Werner paddles, composed of carbon fibers, weigh under 34 ounces (the lightest in the industry). They are ideal for use by novice as well as expert paddlers. The dihedral power face used with this blade is the key to delivering the flutter less balanced strokes that make these paddles so easy to handle. They are full-sized blades that provide a secure brace and a lot of power when needed.
