Explore nature and enjoy new adventures with a kayak from Omni Outdoor Living. A kayak boat offers you the opportunity to go further into nature, beyond a beachside campsite. Because a kayak is propelled by you with a paddle, it's a great option to quietly explore a slough or estuary on an early morning. There are a variety of kayak types, and knowing where you plan to go will help you determine the best style for you. Do you want a good workout, an individual boat to catch lunch when you're camping, or a smooth ride for some beautiful nature photography? Fishing kayaks, inflatable kayaks, and river kayaks are all options, as are sit-in or sit-on-top kayaks. Kayak weight varies depending on material, but our kayaks are built for durability and fun on the water.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are a couple factors to consider when buying the best kayak for you. The first is that kayaks fall into two categories: sit-on-top or sit-in. Sit-on-top kayaks are a great option for beginners because they are designed for use in calmer waters, warmer weather and are easier to get on and get off of. Sit-in kayaks are versatile, all-season and can be used in calm waters but are generally used for rougher waters and longer trips because they have more stability. They move faster and have a cockpit with more dry storage space. Wilderness Systems has a popular variety of sit-in or sit-on-top kayaks. Another factor to consider is what type of propulsion you would like to use: a paddle, pedal or motor. Any kayak can be propelled with a paddle. You will want to take the paddle and kayak width into consideration when choosing the right paddle for you. Pedal-drive systems will generally have to be installed but are a great option for those who want to be able to move their kayak hands-free. For those that want to move even faster, an electric motor might be more your speed. The Oldtown kayaks are worth checking out.

A recreational kayak would be the best because of their stability, easy maneuverability and wider cockpit so they’re easier to enter and exit. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what type of kayak meets your individual needs but knowing what features you’re looking for will make it easier to narrow down.

Kayak types depend on what type of activity you would like to do with a kayak. Please keep in mind that not all kayak manufacturers use the same terms, but these are the general kayak types. There are recreational, touring, whitewater and specialty kayaks. Recreational kayaks are intended for meandering rivers or flatwater with sit-ins and sit-on-top options and little storage. Perception kayaks have a great selection on Omni Outdoor Living. Touring kayaks are crossovers, designed to handle all types of water and give you more control in rougher waters long distance. Whitewater kayaks are seaworthy boats with ample storage space and a rudder to navigate through wind and rapids. Dagger kayaks have the best-selling whitewater kayaks. Specialty kayaks are intended for specific water activities such as fishing. Fishing kayaks have features and customizable options to catch fish in areas not as easily accessed by motored or larger boats.
