Do you prefer to kayak, canoe, or paddle-boat?

the lake! - This is the lake in my area where we can rent paddle boats, kayaks, or canoes. I'm hoping that this will give you a good picture of what kind of lake is like and what would be most fun to do on it. Just for your information, the lake is also about 3 1/2 miles in perimeter. Any ideas & input would be appreciated.

Which do you think would be more fun for two people: renting a kayak, canoe, or paddle-boat for an hour? Me and a friend are planning a trip to this lake and I'm curious to know what people think about each of these. I'm wondering which of these three would be the most fun? And which would be the best work-out? Each is about equal in price to rent (about $15 an hour) - so price isn't an option here. The only issue that I have is that I'm kind of scared to canoe..Because I've heard stories of them tipping over. Can you share the pros & cons of each with me? Which do you think is the best option for me & a friend?

I would definately reccomend kayaking. I'm not very athletic, but I love kayaking. The vesels seem a lot more stable than anything else, and they're pretty easy to get a hang of. Kayaking against waves [in the ocean] is a great, and a little grueling workout.

Personally, I have never went kayaking. But I have gone both canoeing and paddle boating. From what I have heard kayaking would be the hardest work (and best work out), but when I am looking to enjoy myself I think I would most like to go paddleboating. I heard also, that canoes can tip, so beware of bringing your cellphone, and camera, and other things that could possibly be damaged due to water!

My favourite would be a canoe but I guess you have more fun with a paddle-Boat.
