How to Find the Best Kayak Flights for Your Next Vacation

Kayak flights are becoming increasingly popular in the adventure travel industry, allowing travelers to see the ocean and coastlines in an entirely new way. But with so many different companies offering kayak flights, it can be hard to decide which one to go with, especially if you don’t know what you’re looking for. The following guide will help you identify the best kayak flight provider based on your preferences and budget, so you can start planning the perfect vacation today!

What are kayak flights?

Kayak flights are what travel agents call direct flights that include an additional leg of a trip (usually a small segment) that’s booked through another company, usually, so you can get extra perks. For example, let’s say you fly from New York to Los Angeles with Delta but want your flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu on American Airlines.

 American and Delta don’t have any partnership in place, so instead of booking your entire trip with Delta, your travel agent books it using two different companies. The benefit? You might score extra perks like free checked bags or access to quicker security lines because you’re traveling within a certain time frame.

 It’s worth noting that kayak flights aren’t exclusive to international travel; some domestic airlines offer them as well. When should you book a kayak flight?: If there is no fare difference between booking directly with one airline versus another, consider whether there are any other benefits to flying via a third party. If not, then stick with booking directly with an airline—it will save you money!

Understanding insurance


Anyone can make a reservation online, but not every travel site includes insurance in its prices. Before purchasing your ticket, be sure you know whether it’s covered by insurance or if you have to pay extra. Even if your flights are insured through your credit card, you may need additional travel insurance depending on where you’re going and what you plan on doing.

 Most health insurance plans offer travel coverage but ask about restrictions and exceptions (for example some carriers don’t provide coverage outside of North America). You may also want to purchase supplemental trip insurance through a third party like Allianz Global Assistance.

Choosing your destination

Where you want to go depends on your travel plans, but there are a few criteria that you should consider when choosing a destination. For example, if it’s your first time in South America or Europe, it may be best to choose a city-based experience—Paris or Sydney, for example.

 This will allow you more time and energy to explore and less trying to do everything in one day. On the other hand, if you are traveling with an adventurous partner who loves hiking and exploring new destinations, then North America is ideal because of its natural beauty (i.e., Grand Canyon). No matter where you go remember that kayaking is fun no matter where you go!

Choosing a kayak tour company

When planning a vacation, it’s easy to get excited about taking an active part in your adventure. But if you’re not careful, you could find yourself throwing a ton of money away on things that aren’t really all that enjoyable. One way to make sure you don’t do just that is by choosing a kayak tour company wisely and with full knowledge of what’s out there. Here are some tips on how to choose an outfit that will allow you to enjoy all aspects of your trip.

Planning ahead

Planning Ahead

There are two key factors in booking a successful flight on a kayak. Choosing a kayak that’s right for you, and choosing an outfitter with highly experienced guides. You should base your choice of kayaks on where you plan to travel and what type of experience you want.

If it’s your first time traveling by kayak, choose an outfitter with friendly guides who will take good care of you as they show off their local waters. This also gives you time to get comfortable using and maneuvering your vessel before heading off on longer excursions.

Flying with your equipment

If you travel with your kayaking equipment, be sure you know how much it will weigh in advance. Most airlines will charge you based on that weight, so it’s important to plan ahead. You’ll want to book directly with an airline (or travel agent) rather than through a third party such as Expedia or Orbitz; they may not take your equipment into account when calculating flight costs.

If you’re flying long distances and need help making arrangements, contact your country’s national sports federation and ask them who to call—you may have a sponsor who can help pay for part of or all of your trip!


Choosing where you want to go on vacation can be as easy as picking a state on a map. But deciding how you’ll get there—can sometimes take a bit more research. If you’re planning an adventure out of town, it’s best to choose your departure and arrival methods based on ease and cost. Unless, of course, you’re really into kayaking.
