Technically, you could in sports that you will be wearing a flotation vest, but I would not recommend it. I would not want to go kayaking or any other water sport with someone who can't swim. In doing, a non-swimmer is risking their own life as well as the life (and even just the convenience) of others who are out on the water with them who may have to rescue the non-swimmer.

Also, people who can't swim tend to be afraid of the water which makes them difficult students to teach water sports to. They tend to be tense and awkward in doing the sports due to fear. And when they do fall in the water they react with panic and thrashing, which increases the danger to themselves and to people trying to help them.

Why not learn to swim? It really is not difficult and is something ALL people, kids and adults, should know how to do. Your local YMCA agrees and that is why they offer inexpensive and convenient swimming classes in just about every city.
