Hello everyone, today I’m going to go ahead and talk about something that I really enjoy and I want to share with everyone out there. That is kayaking on the Pacific. Now I understand that some get a little fearful of taking a kayak out on the Pacific Ocean because of all of the waves and the possibility of getting tipped over. Also, the very high seats when kayaking on the Pacific and especially in Maslin plays a role because people get a little fearful of getting dehydrated out there or getting burned. However kayaking can be one of the most rewarding experiences ever, especially to a photographer that wants to get into those nitty-gritty places that no one else can get to.
Now kayaking in general on an ocean can be a lot of fun but there’s a few safety considerations that you have to take into consideration especially when you’re on Pacific Coast. Firstly, you have to let some people know that you have gone out kayaking. This is essential since if you are missing and you do not report back or you get lost at sea, which is very unlikely by could happen. Someone knows that you haven’t checked in they know to sound the alarm. Another safety consideration of kayaking on the Pacific is the fact that the check the local Navy or meteorology weather forecast to make sure there aren’t any storms or huge wind change is coming soon. This is essential since the storm could cause a lot of problems for a kayak or an essentially could have you tip over. This could be a life or death situation. Also when you’re taking up kayaking on the Pacific. You have to know that the weather can get extremely hot up to 35 degrees Celsius and it could feel like 50 degrees with the humidity so it’s essential that you wear a very big hat to cover your face from the sun and lots of sunscreen. There is a lot of options of clothing that is UV resistant that can help you out. For some more tips on kayak fishing safety and finding the best fishing kayak you can take a look here.
Now that we’ve taken care of the safety considerations. Let’s get to the fun stuff and that’s kayak, photography now when I say kayaking photography on the Pacific. I don’t mean photographing pictures of different kayaks. What I mean is actually taking your kayak out there and going fishing and finding that huge fish finding that a great big marlin that dolphin that mahi-mahi or Dorado and then taking some great photos of. Now, there’s always the issue of how do you take a photo while you are in your kayak and while you’re grabbing that fish we again don’t recommend that you try in battle standing up and taking a picture while you’re fishing. We don’t want your kayak to tip over. Also, there’s the consideration that your camera can get soaked. There are a lot of options out there for waterproof cameras and we really recommend you get one because the splash back of the ocean can definitely ruin a good camera. There are a couple of attachments. For your kayak that you can put on the corner of the kayak and slowly convert into a cameraman’s this camera mounts could allow you to take great photos from within your kayak pilot sitting across from you. The camera mounts can be positioned on the tip of the kayak at the front and a 10 second or more timer can be sent while you pose with your fish and take a kayak photo.
Alternatively, if your goal is not to take the photo of the fish itself. You can definitely take the kayak out and taken to different islands or take it across the ocean to find your best fishing spot and start taking those photos. We know a couple of divers that can actually park their kayak and anchor it next to a co-while they go diving or scuba diving and take some great underwater fish photos while with their kayak. Now kayak fishing as a sport itself phenomenal. It’s something that you can do and remember the rest of your life. There are a lot of different areas here in Maslin that we have actually found to be great places to go kayak fishing. One of the best places that we found is next to the stone island or farther behind the island called this area is great because your Steer near the shore. However, you can still have access to great fishing. Also, the code is a popular tourist attraction and the island nearby like the stone island in the Bird Island allow you to take up park and relax for a bit with the cool refreshing coconut drink.
