Recent Kayak Reviews

Perception Carolina 12

rated 4 of 5 stars I had only kayaked a few times, but was very interested in becoming a regular kayaker. However, I was on a budget. I did a fair amount of research when looking for a kayak, and a 12' kayak was suggested by a family member who teaches kayaking, because of ease in loading on and off of vehicle, and ease of navigating in creeks, marshes and smaller spaces. It was also recommended that I get a kayak with closed compartments so if I took in water it wouldn't sink. The Perception Caroline 12 has all this. Full review

Necky Eliza 15 with Rudder

rated 5 of 5 stars The Eliza is a sea kayak well-suited to women and men who are from small to moderate size. My Eliza fits me like a good shoe. Very responsive and stable! The Necky Eliza was designed to suit women paddlers, but it also suits men and teenagers. The people it doesn't suit are taller than 5'9" with big broad shoulders. The Eliza fits me perfectly at 5'1" — at 160 pounds, I'm at the top of the recommended weight for this model. Though I am stocky and plump, I can get into the cockpit easily onshore… Full review

Advanced Elements AdvancedFrame Expedition Kayak

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the gold standard for inflatable folding kayaks. The Expedition is so portable I have taken it on airplanes as an ordinary checked bag. On the water, this recreational kayak handles well and has way more glide per stroke than the smaller models from the same manufacturer. The materials are tough and well-made. I am delighted with my Expedition. I have used it for more than four years and it is still going strong. The boat is very well-constructed of tough materials. The outer hull shows… Full review

Jackson Kayaks Mini Tripper

rated 4 of 5 stars This is an excellent little recreational kayak for kids, teens, and small women. It's good for flat water and for fishing. Light enough for small people to carry to the water, it's still well-made of tough plastic. This handy little recreational kayak was the prize I won at a paddle festival. What a pleasure the Mini-Tripper was to paddle! I used it for a year, and it's now owned by the teenage children of a friend. I was not the person it was designed for, yet it still worked fine for me. At… Full review

Advanced Elements Lagoon1

rated 5 of 5 stars This inflatable folding kayak is portable on buses and inside SmartCars and by small people. A very dependable recreational kayak, well-made with a terrific warranty. Available from the manufacturer, some stores, and West Marine stores and website. The Lagoon is my favourite kayak of the several different boats I own. I've used an older version of the Lagoon for eight years without it failing. It's still a reliable, convenient recreational kayak. Here's a photo of me using it for the first time,… Full review

Perception Sound 10.5 Angler

rated 4 of 5 stars Very responsive, quick, stable, and a good workhorse for recreation, workouts, and fishing. In a 3.4-mile trek, average speed was 3.0 and a top speed of 8.5 during an anaerobic workout. Handles well in wind and waves. Good for large paddlers. The kayak's cockpit is roomy, even for a large person. A little more space than the Pungo 120 or 140. The seat and peddles need to be adjusted before you get in. I read reviews that complained about the 10.5 in wind and wave conditions. In 10-15 mph winds and… Full review

Ocean Kayak Malibu Two

rated 4 of 5 stars Great budget family kayak. Very stable, easily configured for two person with space for gear, or single person. Not the most comfortable kayak, but still good for an afternoon on a lake or river. I've bought two of these kayaks for my family of four. My two sons can hop on and take the kayak out on the lake with no issues, or the entire family can split between the two yaks and go for an afternoon paddle on the local river. These are big bulky kayaks that tend to not fit too great on those J hooks… Full review

Dagger Katana 10.4

rated 5 of 5 stars The plastic device on the front cockpit coaming is useful to bungie your paddle to the kayak for brief periods of time. Lay your paddle down 90 degrees to the longitudinal axis of the boat and then hook the bow bungie chord into the plastic device to lock in your paddle. The Katana is easy to outfit and the fitting can be dialed-in pretty tight because of all the pads and shims Dagger provides. I have a longer rec/touring 13 footer to use when I want to go fast in the lake or on swift moving water. Full review

Old Town Trip 10 Deluxe Angler

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent low-cost recreational kayak. This kayak is really nice for flat water and slow moving rivers. My wife and I are are new to kayaking and these were our first purchases. So far we have taken ours out on 16 trips in the past two months ranging from 90 min to our longest trip of 8 hours on the water, 2 miles to 14.88 miles. We have paddled in no wind to as high as about 15mph. It tracks reasonable straight and maneuvers pretty well. We kayak on flat water and slow moving rivers. The kayak… Full review
