Enter the total kayaking time (min) and the body weight (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Kayaking Calories burned. 

Kayaking Calorie Formula

KC = KT / 60 * 300 * BW/150


  • KC is the Kayaking Calorie (calories)
  • KT is the total kayaking time (min)
  • BW is the body weight (lbs)

To calculate Kayaking Calories burned, divide the kayaking time by 60, multiply by 300, then multiply by your body weight over 150.

How to Calculate Kayaking Calories?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Kayaking calories.

  1. First, determine the total kayaking time (min). 
  2. Next, determine the body weight (lbs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = KC = KT / 60 * 300 * BW/150.
  4. Finally, calculate the Kayaking calories.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

body weight (lbs) = 120

FAQs about Kayaking Calories Calculation

How accurate is the kayaking calorie calculator?
The kayaking calorie calculator provides an estimated number of calories burned based on average metabolic rates. Individual results may vary depending on factors such as water conditions and paddling intensity.

Can I use this calculator for other types of paddling activities?
While this calculator is designed specifically for kayaking, it may not provide accurate results for other paddling activities like canoeing or stand-up paddleboarding due to differences in movement and intensity.

Why do I need to input my body weight to calculate calories burned?
Body weight is a crucial factor in determining the number of calories burned during physical activities. Heavier individuals typically burn more calories than lighter individuals performing the same activity due to the increased energy required to move their body.

Is kayaking a good way to lose weight?
Kayaking can be an effective way to burn calories and contribute to a weight loss plan, especially when combined with a balanced diet and other forms of exercise. It is a low-impact activity that can improve cardiovascular health and build muscle strength.
