Choosing the right kayak is vital to an enjoyable experience and it can be very confusing if you don’t know what you’re looking for. With so many brands and types to choose from, it really does come down to one question …
How do you want to use your kayak?

Do you want to do short day trips or escape for a few days at a time? Do you want calm and protected waters or rivers, lakes or calm coastal waters or do you prefer a faster pace and want to take your kayaks into the ocean and surf. Do you want short day trips or an extended touring experience?

Another important element to consider is how many passengers will be travelling in your boat. Are you a solo paddler or paddling with a partner? Will you have small children you want to take exploring?

These are critical questions to answer when making your decision. To help you decide, we have categorised our kayaks based upon your paddling preference.

Fishing Kayaks – Kayak fishing has gained immense popularity in recent times for both fresh and salt water. Understandably a stealthy approach to easily spooked fish is a distinct advantage for the keen angler. Not to mention how inexpensive kayaks are and the little maintenance needed, no towing required and kayaks are easily launched with the use of a trolley.

Fishing kayaks have the advantage of accessing areas where bigger boats can’t go; kelp beds, reefs, mangrove shallows; lakes and rivers and coastal cliff lines. Fishing kayaks are of similar design to sit in and sit on top (SOT) kayaks, but with the distinct difference of having a wider hull (up to 92cm) for greater lateral stability for safe and effective fishing in a variety of conditions.

Other features include: - Considerable storage space inside the hull for rods, fishing gear, batteries, extra paddles and anchors
- Cuts outs moulded into the hull are well suited to hold milk crates with additional supplies

These vessels can be customised to meet the anglers needs with integrated rod holders, GPS, electronic fish finders, trolling motors, fish tanks, electric bait bucks, solar panels.
