Kayaking like all other water sports is safe, once all the necessary precautions are taken and a bit of 'common sense' is used, the lack of which may result in the kayak flipping over. However, even if it does, the kayak is built in such a way as to allow you to easily slip out and float up, as you are wearing a life jacket. The average person takes less than half an hour to 'get the hang' of maneuvering a kayak - how to maintain a good balance and movement. The first couple minutes at any rate are spent in shallow waters so that everyone can get comfortable with the kayaks.
Unfortunately no! Most kayaks are built small and streamlined. Someone weighing say over two hundred and fifty pounds may be a bit to heavy for the kayak. You also need to be reasonably fit. Two to three hours of kayaking is equivalent to a solid workout! However, You are provided with a life jacket, so you need not be a good swimmer. Young children, unless they are strong enough to paddle for themselves should not be included.
