Canoe or Kayak?

Difference between an Inflatable Canoe and Inflatable Kayak

Inflatable Canoes or Inflatable Kayaks are often refereed to as one of the same, as are the terms "canoeing" or "kayaking" which are used as generic terms for paddlesport craft.

As a general rule of thumb, a "canoe" is paddled with a single blade paddle from a higher seating position or from a kneeling position. Whereas a "kayak" is paddled with a double blade paddle from a sitting position.

The difference is often blurred as there's nothing stopping either types of craft from being paddled with any paddle providing the paddle is of a suitable length.
