State-of-the-art Kayaks and Gear!
We pride ourselves on the fact that we sell the majority of our used kayaks and equipment at the end of each season and in turn, reinvest in new, state-of-the-art kayaks and gear at the start of every year to ensure a high-quality experience for our customers! All our kayaks are made of polymer (molded plastic) and are equipped with two hatches with bulkheads and a rudder.
The big lake has many moods… take time to review Being Prepared – Lake Superior Kayaking!
