Is there a minimum age or maximum weight? Can my 8 year old participate?

Response from Kayakzita | Property representative |
Not really a minimum age. As long as you feel comfortable with them going on the water either by themselves or in a double with you. Weight is also not an issue. Totally depends on their comfort level.
