What's a "sea kayak", you ask?
Sea kayaks (or Touring kayaks) are descendants of the original Greenland "qajaq", meaning "hunter's boat".
Over the last 4000 years the materials have evolved but the overall design has remained much the same. They are long, narrow, and less stable that their "recreational" and "day touring" cousins.
Sea Kayaks are designed for covering longer distances over open water, and so their priorities tend towards speed, efficiency, tracking, and load carrying capacity. Today, we tend to paddle sea kayaks for their performance characteristics, and more often than not they are paddled without load on shorter trips.
Better suited to intermediate to advanced paddlers, our sea kayaks are at home on the wide open stretches of the Lower Grand River, and for coastal paddling along the Lake Erie shoreline, as well as playboating in the surf.
Typical models in the category include the Point 65N Kayaks "Whisky 16", "SeaCruiser", "Jack", Boreal Design "Baffin" (or similar)
These kayaks are in the 15.5 to 18 foot length, and are around 21-24 inches wide. Smaller, fitted cockpits provide excellent control of the kayak using the thighs and legs, and are designed to keep the water out when the conditions get rough. All models are equipped with bulkheads and hatches for storage of personal items. Most are equipped with either a rudder or skeg.
Please note that unless otherwise specifically requested in advance, Grand River Kayak cannot guarantee a particular model with-in the category.
