For the less-serious paddlers who just want to relax and have fun
Safe - Stable - Relaxing - Fun
Recreational kayaks are designed for the casual paddler interested in fishing, photography, or a peaceful paddle on a lake, flatwater stream or protected salt water away from strong ocean waves and currents. These boats presently make up the largest segment of kayak sales.
Compared to other kayaks, recreational kayaks have a larger cockpit (in the case of sit-in) for easier entry and exit and a wider beam (69–91 cm) for more stability. They are generally less than 3.7 m in length and have limited storage capacity. They do not perform as well in the sea as their touring counterparts.
Recreational kayaks are available as sit-in or sit-on-top and and are available as doubles or singles.
