This particular stretch of river was very cardio and worked my arms,too! I have only been on lakes,rivers and streams , not ocean... :-)

And without an ocean by me, I would never have guessed folks did it in the ocean! Not that I've done it...

Mel makes a good point. I was thinking more about ocean kayaking. My husband and I used to canoe on lakes and lazy rivers. It wasn't very cardio intensive (unless you were going really fast or had a lot of wind going against you).

Mel--Thanks for the tip about staying on the Coronado side!

I think it depends on the type of kayaking being done for which category to be considered. Lake or bay kayaking would be calisthenics. Ocean waves or white water kayaking would certainly be cardio. Unless there's racing or timed segments?

bottom line if you feel you worked your heart then I'd consider it cardio. =)

Jenny, you can kayak in the bay. Stay on the Coronado side and it's a lot of fun and great for beginners.

Thanks , Jenny!
I love kayaking!! We go with friends sometime and sometimes just the two of us.. Sometimes Mark will go with one of the kids! Yu really get to see the lakes,rivers and streams in a different light! Today the water was like a mirror.. we even hit some small (very small) rapids lololol
I love seeing the wildlife and different birds.. very relaxing.....

I think I would just enter it as cardio. Kayaking is in the SP fitness tracker. Of course, you are working your muscles too, but I think it would be difficult to separate that out for tracking purposes.

I would love to try kayaking sometime. Do you go often?
