Yes, We Have Kayaking at Lake Chapala

November 5, 2011

    Sid, once again you hit on a topic that I have wondered about. I love Lake Chapala and I love water sports having grown up in Ohio on Lake Erie. I love to swim, kayak, water ski, and just cruise around and enjoy being on the water. Every picture I have of Lake Chapala has some fishing boats, but no sail boats or swimmers so I was concerned that the water was too polluted for water sports. Thanks once again for keeping this area in my top 5 places for relocation!

    Hi MAry Ann, Thanks for your nice words. The Lake looks dirty because it’s a natural lake and not very deep.

    Both the government and the environmentalists have pronounced the lake safe for swimming and fishing. They do say not to eat the bottom feeder fish or the organs of any of the fish.

    There’s a Sailing Club and I hope to interview one of the members and go out for a sale and record it on a video for everyone.

    The more younger retirees are getting into sailing and I expect we’ll see more and more sail boats on the lake.

    On occasion you will see a jet ski or even someone water skiing as well.

    On weekends the Tapatios (People from Guadalajara) come and enjoy a day away from the big city and then there are many more people enjoying the various water sports.

    Thanks again for your comments. Siempre tu amigo, Sid
