On most ships, Paddling refers to a one-time kayaking outing. This is an excellent option for guests who would like to experience kayaking in the polar regions but do not want to paddle multiple times or every day. It is also a great option for guests that do not have previous kayaking experience as paddling on most ships (but not all ships) are done in sit ontop inflatable kayaks, which are more stable.

On the ships Greg Mortimer & Sylvia Earle, a full Paddling program is offered meaning you have the chance to paddle multiple times.
