I am concerned about tipping over. Does this happen often? 

Actually it is quite rare for someone to tip over on our kayaking tours. We will go over procedures during our dry land training in the event that someone does get wet. Our guides are well trained in rescues in all kinds of conditions. We carry extra clothes to keep warm, an extensive first aid kit, cell phone and other safety related equipment.

For Surfski and Wave-riding tours, “tipping over” is a required part of the tour (so that guests are familiar with how to get back into the boats). By their very nature, surfskis tend to give paddlers a good soaking – in this they differ greatly from our regular kayaks.
