What to wear for kayaking in Singapore?

Can you wear slippers to kayak Singapore?

Slippers and sandals are fine. Wear comfortable sports attire when you are out kayaking. I highly recommend that you either wear long exercise pants or shorts to avoid getting those tanned lines at undesirable places.

Do you wear a bathing suit to kayak?

You can just wear a tank top, or bathing suit top under your life preserver, but a rash guard is a great item that you will be wanting after 10 minutes of paddling. It guards against rashes due to the rubbing of your arm against the preserver and a must on a long paddle trip.

Can I wear sneakers kayaking?

Most sports sneakers, even high-quality ones, aren’t designed to come into contact with water, and they don’t have the features that work well during kayaking. Sneakers don’t drain well, they don’t have sufficient grip, and they may have cotton laces that are difficult to tie and untie when wet.

Do I need covered shoes for kayaking?

Waterproof shoes are recommended if you will be kayaking in cold conditions since they are the best option to keep your feet warm. A pair of waterproof footwear might also be more desirable if you want to keep your feet as dry as possible.

Do I need a license to kayak in Singapore?

Presently, any individual or organisation in Singapore who wishes to own any canoes or kayaks are required to apply for a licence from the MPA. Canoes and kayaks managed and rented by commercial operators are licensed and inspected annually and this will be continued.

Can you wear sandals kayaking?

Sandals are as waterproof as they get! They won’t hold weight when wet and tend to dry quicker than most shoes. Sandals are a great option for a long day of recreational paddling as they’re easy to put on and take off while on the kayak, making it effortless on those hot days when you need to take a swim.

Can I wear jeans kayaking?

Instead of cotton, wear synthetic materials such as polyester, fleece or Gore-Tex. This means you shouldn’t show up for your kayak trip in jeans and a cotton T-shirt, unless you like being cold and wet.

What do you wear to a sit on top kayak?

Wetsuit pants are a brilliant idea in that they are super simple to get into but still provide warmth. Your lower half is much more likely to get wet due to paddle splash or sitting on a wet seat so it is definitely a good idea to wear water specific trousers even on warm days.
