Historical Information

This small human-powered boat was used by the native of Ainu, Aleut and Eskimo hunters in sub-artic regions of northeastern Asia, North America, and Greenland. Kayaks were developed by these natives to hunt on inland lakes, rivers, and coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean, North Atlantic, Bering Sea and North Pacific Oceans. The first kayak ever known were created from stitched animal skins such as seal skin stretched over a wooden frame made from collected driftwood. The oldest kayaks ever found were at least 4,000 years old. Today, modern Kayaks come in a wide variety of designs and materials for specialized purposes.
