Paddling Humor Old Man Winter is just upon us and maybe in your part of Florida (or in your state), it's too cold to go outside dip a paddle on your favorite river or coastal area. We know the feeling and want to help "warm you up" with some friendly kayak and canoe humor. Most of these jokes were scraped together from emails, websites and there are even a few originals in the mix. Enjoy!

Here we go:

Florida Kayaker: It was so hot today I saw a pelican picking fish out of the water with a pair of tongs.


While paddling off the Florida coast, a tourist capsized his kayak. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted,"Are there any gators around here?!" "Naw," the man hollered back, "they ain't been around for years!" Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore. About halfway there he asked the guy,"How'd you get rid of the gators?" "We didn't do nothin'," the beachcomber said. "The sharks got 'em."


Two Inuits sitting in a kayak were getting cold so they decided to light a fire in their boat. It promptly sank, proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it too.


Two canoeists were paddling down the river, when they hit a concrete wall. One looked at the other and said, dam!


The New Zealand kayaker wrote to a dating service explaining that he had specific criteria for a potential mate and would not accept anyone that doesn't meet his standards. He went on to explain the young lady must be cute, short, enjoys cold water and paddling.

He received a reply the following week. It contained a picture of a penguin.


Florida Canoeist: Did you have a nice summer?
Canadian Canoeist: Yes indeed, we had a great paddle that afternoon!


Why did the elephant rent a canoe? Frankly, I don't know, but I wish someone would find out--he's sunk five of our boats in the last week alone.


Knock, Knock

Canoe, who?
Canoe lend me some money?

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Kayak, who?

Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Genoa, who?
Genoa a good canoe builder?


An expedition kayaker gets lost in a chain of deserted islands. Paddling well after sunset he finally camps on a sandy beach. He wakes up and notices the sand is dark red. The sky is dark red. He walks around and sees that there is dark red grass, dark red birds and dark red fruit on the dark red trees. He's shocked when he finds that his skin is starting to turn dark red too.

"Oh no!" he says, "I've been marooned!"


A recreational kayaker, a canoeist, and an old salt sailor went into a bar and ordered a beer. Each found a fly in their beer.

The recreational kayaker looked in his beer and said, "hey bartender I have a fly in my beer. Give me another beer."

The canoeist looked in his beer, found the fly, reached in an picked it out and continued drinking.

The old salt sailor looked in his beer, saw the fly, grabbed it by the wings, shook it over the glass and yelled, "Spit it out, Spit it out!"

A blonde driving down some rural highway spots another blonde in a kayak, trying to paddle across a soybean field. She gets out of her car and calls out to the "kayak" blonde, "It's blondes like you, that give blondes like me a bad name! I'd go over there and kick your butt, if I could swim!"


Three old paddlers are drifting gently downriver on a quiet Sunday morning when a funeral procession drives by. One of the old men takes off his hat & puts it over his heart. The procession disappears into the distance; the old man puts his hat back on, picks up his paddle and continues on his way. One of the other old guys says, "Hey, Fred, that was thoughtful of you". Fred replies "Well, it was the least I could do after 40 years of marriage."


Two morons in a rented canoe go fishing. They catch a lot of fish and return to the dock.
1st moron: I hope you remember the spot where we caught all those fish.
2nd moron: Yes, I made an "X" on the side of the boat to mark the spot.
1st moron: You idiot! How do you know we'll get the same boat?


Overheard Florida Kayak Guide to tourist: See those alligators over there? We have trained them to stay perfectly still so you can take better pictures.


More Florida Kayak Guide: You know, the alligators are always looking for a hand out. Be careful, I once had an English teacher on a trip and she didn't listen to me and now she's teaching shorthand.

Happy Holidays,
