Sit on Top Kayaks

Sit on top kayaks are a great option for beginners, children, and those still finding their sea legs! As the name suggests, these vessels feature an open hull, allowing the inhabitant to sit on top without feeling closed in or restricted. This can be useful if you are still learning; in the event of capsizing, it is easy to flip the boat over and climb back in, without any concerns over becoming trapped or stuck. The open nature of the hull often means that sit on top kayaks benefit from reduced storage space, but many will offer bungee cords or covered areas to allow essentials to be brought on board without issue. You may also find yourself getting wet legs compared to a sit-in kayak - the whole top of the boat is open to the elements, so make sure you pack your waterproofs before setting off!
