SIT INSIDE KAYAKS

Sit inside recreational kayaks are an alternative to sit-on-top kayaks.

Up Side

  • Since you sit inside the kayak, your lower body is protected from the elements, such as the sun in the summer and splashes of water in the winter.
  • This eliminates the need for sunscreen on your legs or waterproof paddling pants, making a sit-inside the ultimate 4-season kayak style. 
  • Sit-inside kayaks also tend to be lighter and therefore easier for a single person to carry or portage the kayak.

 

Down Side

  • If you flip over, the boat will fill with water, so you must either find a spot shallow enough to stand up and dump the water out or bail the water out while floating.
  • Getting back in the boat is also a little more difficult if you can't stand. However, some sit-insides have small cockpits that allow you to wear a skirt, which seals you in the boat.
  • With the proper skill and practice, those sit-insides can be rolled back up once flipped over, keeping the inside of your boat dry.
