The Kayak boat is a low base vessel that seems to be quite submerged in the water. On the other hand, the Canoeing boats have the paddler sitting forward-faced with their legs in front. The Canoes make use of a two-bladed paddle which is rotated periodically along with the front-to-back pulls on either side. The Kayaks mostly have their decks closed.
