Kayaking in Manasquan

Growing up on the Jersey shore, one of our favorite water activities is kayaking. Waking up early, heading down to the reservoir, catching some sun all while getting a nice workout – the definition of summer in New Jersey. 

This past weekend we rented four kayaks from Paddle Out, a kayak and paddle board rental, in Manasquan. We love the atmosphere of this beach town this time of year. Jeeps with their tops off, beach cruisers strolling up and down, long boarders whizzing through, surfers carrying their surfboards – we never want summer to end. 

Paddle Out is located on Main St – prime location to the entrance of the water. We signed our waivers and headed out to our kayaks. It was the boys’ first time so we all very excited to see their little faces light up with excitement as soon as they sat down. Their expressions were priceless! 

We were given one hour to kayak – if you are not familiar with kayaking – one hour is plenty! Because it was the last official weekend, the water was pretty busy with boaters and other kayaks and paddle boarders – but we did not mind sharing the water! The more the merrier! The boys had a blast waving and saying hello to everyone who passed by.

We wish we could spend everyday out on the water but sadly, summer is coming to an end. We will be trading our paddles in for some pumpkins and tractor rides! 

Thank you so much to Paddle Out for hosting us. We had so much fun – the boys loved it! We cannot wait to come back next summer.  Make sure to check out Paddle Out for their opening weekend 2020! Summer, we are counting down the days!
