Tandem and Open Cockpit Touring Kayaks

Tandem and Open Cockpit Touring Kayaks are popular alternatives to Tandem Sit On Tops and Open Canoes. The advantages of an Open Cockpit Touring Kayak are that they offer comfortable padded seats with good back support. Paddlers stay drier than they would paddling a Sit On Top Kayak (when used in appropriate conditions) and most of our customers find them easier to paddle than an Open Canoe.
These can all be transported on a standard car roof rack.
