What Is Kayak Touring?

What is kayak touring you ask?

Essentially it is taking your kayak out for a cruise, this can be for a couple of hours or for a multi day adventure either on your own or with friends. It really just about getting out on the water. 

What does kayak touring mean? In its simplest form kayak touring is simply taking your kayak out on the water. But the touring indicates that you prefer to travel or cover longer distances on your kayak. You might prefer to go out paddling for a few hours to get some of those nautical miles under your belt. 



It's no secret the materials used in inflatable products are perhaps not the most environmentally friendly, but used correctly, and built to last, there can be a sustainable solution.

We asked Aquaglide, one of the top brands globally to give us the run down on how they aim towards a more sustainable brand.


At Aquaglide, we build products that are designed to get folks outside in nature. To say outdoor spaces are at the core of everything we do is an understatement. Unfortunately, human-induced climate change threatens the places we love so dearly – and as a team of passionate paddlers and outdoorspeople, we could no longer wait to take action. So over the past year, we have rebuilt the mission of Aquaglide to focus not only on paddlers and people – but also, the planet. We are a small team, but aim to take every step we can to limit our negative impact and maximize our positive change. By doing so, we hope to inspire others within our community to become advocates for our natural spaces along the way.
