Where can I buy a Sit On Top kayak?

If you want a kayak for children or beginning paddlers, or if you want to jump off your kayak and swim in the lake, a Sit On Top Kayak is the perfect choice. A Sit On Top kayak has a sealed hull, with molded seats on top, instead of the typical kayak cockpit. This design makes a Sit On Top kayak easier to put in and take out of the water than a typical kayak. It is easier to climb in and out of, too.

Other Features of Sit On Top Kayaks

  • Water bailing: Sit on Top Kayaks are slower than traditional kayaks, and they contain self-bailing drain holes to keep water out and make righting them easier if they flip over.
  • Weather protection: Sit On Top kayaks are preferable for warm-weather fun. On a chilly fall day, you will be more susceptible to wind and cold because you aren’t protected by the cockpit.

Several kayak manufacturers, including Perception Kayaks, make Sit On Top models, and many of them have padded seat cushions for additional comfort and versatility. For example, the Perception Sport Pescador 10.0 Kayak features an adjustable backrest as part of its unique Comfort Seating System.
