Just when you think the slick, rich pirates with no backbone are on the verge of stealing the real natural places from us, you squeeze down into a kayak on a late Saturday afternoon and you paddle out onto a river... Then twilight settles in, and you turn your bow and head back into the sunset and remember, after all, why you care, and why - like so many good-hearted folks - you respect the true nobility of wild places.

Chalk-Sound kayaking >> If you go to Provo in Turks and Caicos, I highly recommend going to Chalk Sound and renting a kayak for a couple of hours!

Sea Kayaking (Tonga). 'The best way to see the aquamarine waterways and remote sandy islands of Tonga’s Vava’u and Ha’apai groups is to take to the water on a guided multiday kayak tour. There’s plenty on offer, from single-day trips to 13-day packages, giving you the opportunity to see paradise, get a bit of exercise, and meet smiling villagers on outer islands.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/tonga/vavau-group
