Canoeing and kayaking are leisure or competitive water-based activities that are practised in single-seater boats or as a team (up to four seats).~
The two practices are different. Firstly, there is the canoe, of Native American origin, a boat that is propelled and steered by a single paddle with the paddler kneeling or sat on a raised seat. And on the other hand, the kayak, invented by Eskimos, which is propelled and steered by a double paddle, with the paddler sat inside the boat.
Canoeing and kayaking are practised in calm water (reservoir, lakes, canals, tributaries), in white water (rivers, rapids) and in marine environments (seas, estuaries, oceans, etc.).
There are many disciplines: gentle, touring, kayak polo (like basketball in a kayak), sprint (speed), river descent, slalom, marathon, kayak surfing, freestyle, extreme (Class V fast-flowing rapids and rivers).~
