PAKAYAK boats are totally leak-proof, and more than up to the task of an eskimo roll in Hoboken, NJ (Manhattan is in the background).

What They’re Saying

During my 6+ hour test on a river in Connecticut and on the choppy Long Island Sound, I kept experiencing two opposing disbeliefs: When I saw the kayak all packed up, I couldn’t believe the unit becomes an efficient, floating boat. Conversely, when I was on the water, I couldn’t believe I was paddling in a sectional kayak.


At exactly two feet wide, the Blue Fin is plenty stable through wind-blown chop and the occasional rogue wave. It does not feel tippy, and I felt confident just sitting idle in it. As the morning fog started to clear and the south end of Catalina Island was illuminated by the sun, I was momentarily tempted to see if I could reach it by Pakayak.

Just took this for a spin at Sand Key, Florida. A very well thought out design. A smooth kayak to paddle with great tracking!

I am 68 (gasp) and attended a demo yesterday. I am in love with this kayak! I had it assembled in less than 10 min.! Being on the short side there were a couple of minor issues but once I saw and felt where the latches were, no problem. I love that the cockpit front is raised and the carry bag fitting behind the seat is genius. Can't wait to get mine!

I will grant you that come Hell or High Water (and that is a good thing) that clasp is not going to pop open on its own. Make me feel safer knowing that the boat is together till I take it apart.
