Sea kayaking is often a natural progression from flatwater kayaking, once you’ve mastered your strokes and are confident on the water you may find that it’s time to explore that great ocean.
We carry a range of in-store sea kayaks including basic and affordable entry-level sea kayaks, expedition kayaks for the seasoned paddler and adventure kayaks for those that enjoy an agile boat with quick turinig ability. These are available in both plastic and composite.
Yes, there is a lot to choose from, however every kayak we stock has a specific purpose, that's why we recommend that you pop in to our kayak store where one of our experienced staff can help you find the perfect kayak for you, or alternatively try our How to choose your Kayak Guide.
The kayaks are listed below according to boat length.
NEW The Riot Evasion is an ideal choice for the larger paddler looking for something like the Riot Brittany but perhaps finding the Brittany a bit tight fitting.
The Evasion is slightly wider for added stability and has the characteristic Riot multi-chine hull offering excellent tracking coupled with extended hull shape durability.
With heaps of storage accessed through larger-than-usual hatches, the Evasion is a good choice for overnighters and other extended trips requiring a lot of gear.
As with all the Riot kayaks this unit offers exceptional value for money.
The Touryak is another Prijon Classic. If you're after a sea kayak that offers more stability rather than speed, but can handle a fair degree of chop and rough stuff, yet boasts all the comfort features of any Prijon kayak, then the Touryak might be ideal for you.
Plenty of storage options above and below the deck the Touryak is true to its namesake.
Made of thermoformed ABS plastic the Barracuda Beachcomber is lighter than polyethylene kayaks and lighter than most composites. At just 17kg the Beachcomber is a pleasure to handle in and out of the water
Just under 4.9m the Barracuda boasts a stable hull with plenty of rocker, resulting in a reasonably quick yet manoeuvrable kayak suitable for most conditions. Ideal for playing in the surf and short to medium day trips.
The Tracer 165 is a fast, lightweight thermoformed sea kayak offering one of the most seaworthy designs in the industry. It is sleek, agile and highly manoeuvrable. Ideally suited to paddlers under 90kg.
Manufactured Using latest thermoformed technology the Hurricane Kayaks are (along with the Barracuda Beachcomber above) a cut above the rest.
The immaculate exterior is a standard features of the Hurricane range.
Just as tough but lighter than Polyethylene and cheaper and tougher than Fibreglass, Kevlar or Carbon the Tracer is one of the lightest 5m sea kayaks available in the world today and addresses the strong need for a lightweight yet durable sea kayak.
The Tracer 165 is now available with a retractable skeg or rudder.
Cindy (our Canberra store manager) Kayak of choice.
Now available in three versions, the Seayak Classic, the 500 Low Volume and the 520 High Volume
Due to its attractive shape (clearly sea-worthy bow) and excellent manoeuvrability, together with all the quality Prijon features, the Seayak has always been one of the best selling sea kayaks around. The only problem is that people come in different shapes and sizes and so not everybody fitted into the Seayak perfectly. Generally it was only medium built people that connected perfectly with the Seayak Classic.
Now with three versions of the Seayak available, the Classic, the 500 Low Volume and the 520 High Volume, there is a Seayak size for practically everyone.
Already the new 500 LV and 520 HV are proving to be hugely popular. The Seayak 520 is Lance (our driver's) Kayak of choice.
Take the Prijon Millenium, stretch it, tweak it a bit, and you've got the Prijon Proteus, a leaner, faster, longer distance touring sea kayak of immaculate quality.
Boasting all the German quality features and extra comfort offered by any Prijon kayak the Proteus is ideal for the more competitive paddler, or paddlers looking for a craft to travel longer distances with less effort.
NEW Successor to the Prilite 470 and Prilite 505, the Prijon Prilite Marlin is a beautiful, high volume thermoformed sea kayak, which fits nicely between the Hurricane Tracer and the Whelo Bigfoot
The Hurricane Tracer, also made of lightweight thermoformed plastic, has always been one of our best selling sea kayaks, but does not suite larger paddlers. Up until now larger paddlers have had the option of going for the Whelo Bigfoot (below) but the Bigfoot is sometimes too big or too voluminous for some people, and so the Prilite Marlin fills this gap beautifully.
Originally the Marlin came out in HTP and Composite too but the huge success of the Prilite Marlin has rendered these other versions no longer applicable.
Eric (Gold Coast store manager) and Mell (Distribution) Kayak of choice.
