With a slight slant on kayak fishing, this website offers intensive paddling news, photos of the day, videos, destinations, and skills. In fact, Canoe & Kayak Magazine has been around since 1973. Their Facebook community has almost 130,000 fans and offers lots of incredible photos and articles.

We love this website because it has some terrific articles about all of the different styles of kayaking, kayak tips and guides, info on gear and accessories, and a very cool blog.
This website most definitely is the “grooviest” of them all. It offers a host of kayaking videos and articles, and a download for the 2018 All Paddlesport Buyer’s Guide.
