Here's what other sites are saying:

Designed to be paddled solo, with a partner, or there's even a removable 3rd seat for a child; the Dirigo 155 tandem kayak has everything you need for family fun on the water.


Like a less-temperamental floating camel, the Old Town Dirigo 155 Tandem Kayak has room for two and carries plenty of gear across whatever body of flat water you toss it on. Durable rotomolded polyethylene plastic is sculpted into a stable, forgiving shape that is still surprisingly fast through the water, and cushioned, contoured seats make every outing a comfortable one. Even better, the Glide Track foot brace system and included thigh pads ensure a stable and responsive ride. The combination of a Click Seal hatch and glove box hatch provides plenty of dry storage space for delicate gear, while bungees at the bow and stern give you spots to stash whatever gear you have that can stand to get a little wet. Old Town designed the Dirigo 155 to be rudder ready, so attaching the Old Town rudder system (sold separately) is relatively painless, and even recommended if you're planning on doing a lot of paddling in high winds or strong currents. The Dirigo does come with a removable child's seat, though, so you can go ahead and bring junior along on those mellow and relaxing paddles.
