Shopping for a Trip on the Water

Shopping for a Trip on the Water

Anywhere there is a beautiful body of water, there are those of us who can’t just sit on the sidelines. Not everyone is as hardcore about kayaking as the team at SeaKayakerMag.com. A lot of people just enjoy kayaking as a way to soak in a little sun, enjoy the water, and keep themselves fit. Of course, if having a little fun on the water is your goal, then what better way to enjoy this activity than with a friend (or a loved one)? While I love doing solo trips, I also love cruising in a tandem kayak over a beautiful body of water.

Ocean Kayak 12 Feet Malibu

The Ocean Kayak Malibu is a tandem, sit-on-top recreational kayak that can work very well for one person, two people and can even support two adults and a small child along for the ride. Maximum weight capacity is 425 lbs.

The Ocean Kayak Malibu has three seating positions on top of the hull. They are located at the bow, stern and middle for paddling solo. It includes two comfort seats, one extra molded in well seat for child, carved out wells for the feet, safety straps and skid plate. Made from durable plastic and easy to store.
