Summer Over? Absolutely not! Now is a great time to kick back and kayak around the Fingerlakes. Nothing relaxes a person more than gliding through our beautiful Finger Lakes. Each lake offers a different view. Why not take advantage of the Fall before it gets cold.
New to kayaking? Here are a few lakes you may not know about, but are smaller and perfect for the beginner . Lamoka and Waneta lakes are small which makes them perfect for the beginner. Both of these lakes are between Keuka and Seneca, and due to their size, the wind is not as bad but the scenery is still just as beautiful. A kayak you may want to consider is the Ascend FS10 Sit-In Angler Kayak-Titamium. A durable high quality kayak with a seat that is comfortable, and you can remove the seat for land use. The kayak has a hands free adjustable foot brace that moves to accommodate a person 5'2" to 6'6". Just check out our reviews on-line to see just how great this kayak is.
How about a Finger Lake that is close to home with a Lighthouse? Try Cayuga Lake, but don't forget a good paddle such as the Carlisle Magic Kayak Paddles. Reliable, tough and lightweight with a pushbutton take down you won't be disappointed. Don't forget to bring along a dry bag. The Ascend Round Bottom Lightweight Dry Bag is waterproof, lightweight, durable and best of all you can see what is inside it.
Want nature in its fullest? Take a look at Hemlock Lake which is south of Rochester. This lake will remind you of the Adirondacks. Don't forget your life jacket. The Ascend Deluxe Padding Life Jacket for Men or the Ascend Deluxe Paddling Life Jacket for Women is lightweight and comfortable. The jacket has mesh shoulders with open sides for ventilation. Very easy to get off and on.
I mentioned just a few lakes, but take the time to really explore what the Finger Lakes region is all about. We live in a picturesque area. Is'nt it worth looking into kayaking every single one of them? It brings us back to the basics which as you know is needed in this stressful world of ours, so stop on by and talk with one of our helpful associates in our Camping Department.
