Health Tip: Kayak and Canoe Safety

(HealthDay News) -- Kayaking and canoeing are popular outdoor activities during summer.

But before you paddle, the American Canoe Academy recommends getting to know the rules of the water.

The ACA urges paddlers to:

  • Take an on-water course.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Wear a life jacket and bright clothing.
  • Designate someone who will notify others if you don't return on time.
  • Make sure you are a competent swimmer.
  • Know your limits.
