Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by love it! the only reason i didn't give this 5 starts is because there really isn't any where for me to tie my son's kayak to this so i can tow him. but it is very stable and my 8 year old and I can go for a quick kayak ride together on this, and he can stand up and jump off and climb back on without much difficulty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spectacular! The best way to have relaxing cruising with your dogs onboard. This is a compact and fun kayak. July 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy and fun I bought this a little over a year ago because I loved canoeing with my dad as a kid, but wanted an option for lake boating that I could do solo. I'm not strong enough to lift much over my head so I wanted something that didn't require getting it on top of the car (5'4" woman). This kayak is short enough that I can easily slide it into my Kia Sorento with the back seats folded down. I have used it only in flat lake conditions, I enjoy just paddling around and exploring different parts of the lake. My favorite part is that the boat is stable enough that I've been able to jump out in open water and swim around a little to cool off, and then climb back on it. I won't say I can climb back on it gracefully, but I can do it. I do wish there were handles, but going from the car to to boat slip where I usually put in is not bad. I hoist the thing up on my hip and hold on through the scupper hole. June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressive little kayak I purchased this kayak as practically an impulse buy to have something fun to do at the beach. I really didn't do any research and I had some tax return money burning a hole in my pocket so I picked this kayak up because it could fit inside my jeep with the front seats folded down. I really never imagined I would get as much use of it or have as much fun with it as I have had. I have taken in through fairly rough bays and strong currents and it has always felt completely stable. I was shocked the first time taking it out at how it almost felt impossible to tip. Steering it, I am guessing because it is so short, is a breeze. It probably isn't as fast or efficient as a longer/narrower kayak, but I have done things in this that more experienced kayakers told me you needed a longer kayak for. The size makes it incredibly maneuverable and that makes it a lot more fun. It just requires a bit stronger of a paddler to push through currents due to the width/short length. You can probably get a little higher quality plastic and superior design in a similar sized Ocean Kayak brand, but you'll pay for it as well. Now that I have more experience, I wish to move onto something like an OK Scrambler 11, but truth be told if it weren't for the price of this kayak, I probably never would have bought one and found how fun ocean kayaking can be. This was probably one of the most fu/most 'worth it' products I have purchased in years. May 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My First Kayak So far, me and my son have taken our Pelican Kayaks out in the water ways and the ocean in rough seas. These kayaks handle really well and are the perfect size for transporting by vehicle and carrying down the beach. Great product and the sales people at Dicks in Myrtle Beach are the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Kayak.... Light Kayack, wide and stable. Comfortable seat, easy to launch. Suggestion: the width of the kayak needs longer paddles. I am 5'2 and got the correct size for my stature but got soaked from the paddles, Get longer paddles with this kayak. April 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my kayak! I have had my kayak almost a year and used it on the lake throughout the winter. I love it and want to get another. April 4, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by No Handles. Why is there a place for handles but no handles. I need Handles. where can I get them? I have not used this product yet as it is raining and very windy. March 12, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very stable, sturdy, fun! But heavy My 8 year old son bought this kayak after saving a year for one. It is very stable in the water, but due to the short length and bathtub shape, it doesn't track very well, which can be fatiguing on long paddles. My only other complaint is that it is very heavy compared to our other kayaks...seems like it is thicker plastic which is good for durability but bad for loading and portage. Dry well is a great feature. All in all a stable boat that sits high in the water, and manageable for kids but plenty big for adults. Great for beginners and a good price. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING This is my first kayak and I love it. It is great for fishing, you can stand up on it, and it doesn't flip over. It is light so you can put it in the back of your truck and it is easy for one person to carry. I'm on only 16 years old but this is the best thing for fishing besides a Jon boat. You can mount a fishing rod holders and handles. It is awesome. December 1, 2013
