The best places to sail a kayak (or one-man canoe) are bodies of water near land that won't wash you out to sea, but will still offer a little bit of motion to make the experience fun and exciting. The Shetland Islands off the coast of Great Britain aren't too choppy, and the water isn't as bitter cold as one would expect from its geography. It also offers a complex network of accessible sea caves. Coastal kayaking and canoeing in Scotland, meanwhile, offers sandy beaches. Affordable and knowledgeable tour guides and equipment are abundantly available for this particular adventure.
