For some travelers the excitement of participating in an expedition to the polar regions is not enough. They need an extra boost of adrenaline. Those adventure seekers opt to add camping, mountaineering, cross-country skiing or sea-kayaking to their adventure vacation in the Arctic or Antarctica.
What is the difference between a Whitewater Kayak and Sea-kayak?
A kayak is a small boat originally designed by the Inuit of the Arctic. Paddlers propel the boat by a double-bladed paddle. The blades are offset slightly from each other. A sea-kayak, unlike a whitewater kayak, is designed for open water. Most Antarctic expedition operators that offer a sea-kayaking option provide single or tandem kayaks for their paddlers.
