Day Touring Kayaks 12’ – 14’

WHY 12’ – 14’ KAYAKS?

These kayaks are wonderful for paddlers who want big adventure with limited storage space. They are compact versions of a full length kayak, complete with sealed bulkheads, safety lines, fittings, and rudder or skeg. While not as fast, they are more maneuverable, extremely stable and often more playful. Great for day.

Day/Weekend Touring Kayaks 14.6’ – 16’

WHY 14.6’ – 16’ KAYAKS?

Walking the line between easy paddling 12’ – 14’ kayaks and the slick and quick 16’5” – 18’4” kayaks, this size range has improved “tracking” (straight-forward efficiency) while fitting comfortably, accommodating most skill levels, giving more room for gear, and providing more speed and performance than the 12’ – 14’ range. These are the “jack of all trades” kayaks that are great for day paddling and weekend getaways.

WHY 16’5” – 18’4” KAYAKS?

Boreal kayaks blend traditional aesthetics with modern performance and functionality to make you experience in the wilderness or even on a cottage lake, unforgettable. Longer kayaks with rudders are easily controlled in wind and wave conditions and provide beginners with an learning aid while honing their skills.
