My daughter has been taking out a kayak since she was 10. I don't let her go alone though, maybe in another year or 2, she's 12 now.

My boy age 10 can handle a prowler 13 just fine. We have paddled together for miles, the only thing, he seems to be an alligator magnet. Seems every time we go he attracts gators.

I think 10 is a good age for them to start paddling on their own. Much younger than that and if a problem does arise I'm not real sure they could stay calm enough to correct the issue even if there was someone nearby guiding them.

thanks. My son is young (7) and has started asking about it. He's big and meets some of hte wieght ranges for hte kayaks, but he is young. I was just wondering when people start them out.

My wife and I kayak years ago. Kindof miss it.
