What Should You Do if You Fall Out of a Kayak?

From kayak rentals to guided tours, there are plenty of ways to explore the lake and its surrounding areas. But before you head out on the water, knowing what to do is essential if you fall out of your kayak.


The first thing you should do if you fall out of your kayak is to stay calm. It's easy to panic in this situation, but it's essential to remain calm and assess it. If you wear a life jacket, ensure it's properly secured and inflated.


If you're not wearing a life jacket, try to find something to hold onto, such as a paddle or debris. Once secure, you can assess the situation and determine the best action.


If you're in shallow water, you can try to stand up and walk back to shore. You can swim back to shore or the nearest boat if the water is too deep.


If you cannot swim, you can signal for help by waving your arms or shouting. It's also important to remember to stay with your kayak, as it can provide you with additional buoyancy and help you stay afloat.


Finally, if you're in a group, stay together and help each other. Kayaking is a team sport, and looking out for each other is essential. If someone falls out of their kayak, help them back in and provide any assistance.
