Sit-on-top kayaks are the most user friendly paddlecraft. They are very easy to paddle, very easy to transport, and very safe.


Up Side

  • If you flip over in a sit-on-top, all you have to do it flip the boat back over, and then wiggle your way back on top.
  • Since you're sitting on top of the kayak, it never fills with water. This is the main advantage of a sit-on-top kayak.


Down Side

  • Your lower body is always going to be exposed to the elements, like the sun in the summer and splashes of water in the winter.
  • This is easily remedied by using sunscreen or wearing water proof paddling clothing.
