Tips to Choosing the Right Kayak

When it comes to choosing a kayak, there are a ton of options out there. Even if you’ve decided on the type of kayak you want, there’s still a huge array of manufacturers, styles, and price ranges to choose from. The Pelican Apex 100 is one of the many high quality ones you can pick from. The Apex 100 is a very beginner-friendly kayak. It’s ultra-stable design makes it easy to maneuver, even for a first time paddler. But don’t get me wrong – it’s not a strictly “beginner” kayak – it will suit the needs of a variety of paddlers, both novice and experienced.

This kayak is perfect for exploring lakes and cruising down slow rivers. It’s definitely not a white water capable craft, but that should be obvious based on its design. We like that its lightweight design makes it easy to transport back and forth. This Pelican Apex weighs just 40 lbs., so it’s a breeze to carry with a friend, and can be carried by one person if need be, although it’s a bit awkward to carry because of its size.

The Apex 100 offers a surprising amount of storage space. It’s easy enough to load a good 20 pounds of camping gear onto this craft without much of an effect as far as performance goes. The storage capacity and ample space for add-on accessories make this craft a great choice for kayak fishing, as well!

Take a friend and go kayaking for the day with the Explorer K2. With an inflatable floor, seats, and adjustable backrests, you can ride in comfort. While this kayak is extremely comfortable, it’s also incredibly durable because it’s made up of 30-gauge vinyl. (Fix any small mishaps with the repair patch that comes included.) The two 84 inch oars are made of aluminum, and are built to last. While this kayak is sturdy, you can also inflate it quickly through both of the Boston valves that are attached to the main hull chamber.

Get your adventure going quickly and make it last all summer. This inflatable kayak features three separate air chambers; one in the floor and two in the main hull. This set includes: a hand pump for quick inflation, quick-fill/fast-deflate Boston valve, grab line on both ends, repair patch kit, and a storage duffle bag.

The Intex Explorer K2 Kayak is sporty and fun with a streamlined design for easy paddling. The bright yellow color and sporty graphics makes the kayak highly visible in the water. Great for experiencing lakes and mild rivers with a friend, this Sports Series kayak is perfect for two adults. Lightweight and compact, this kayak is a snap to assemble, and allows you to take the fun of kayaking wherever you go.
