Kayaking is an outdoor recreational activity that encourages physical fitness, nature exploration, and adventure. Kayaking provides opportunities for a wide range of personal interests that are great for a family fun as well. From the serenity of gliding across a smooth lake, or exploring a meandering stream, to the thrill of paddling a whitewater river.

Increasingly, people with disabilities are interested in kayaking as a recreational activity. Using standard and/or adapted equipment, it allows people with disabilities can kayak on a “level paddling field” with their non-disabled peers. For many participants minimal adaptations are necessary for them to enjoy kayaking. For others, the increasing varieties of adaptations that OKASA has available are making kayaking accessible for even more participants.

OKASA is proud to partner with the Chesapeake Boathouse to host several of our programs.
