Looking for more excitement? These boats are easy to use, and behave much like whitewater kayaks without the hassle of learning wet-exits, eskimo rolls, and proper strokes. These kayaks are hard plastic and therefore they track and behave much better than the “duckies” that others rent. Plus, they provide comfortable seats for your trip. Reserve these in advance as we frequently rent all these out. They are our most popular boat.
