Sit on Top Kayaks

All of our kayaks are made in the UK. Prices from only £445

We do not sell cheap Chinese kayaks (Galaxy, Go Sea, Blue Wave etc)

These sit on top kayaks are built to the highest quality, have the best hull shapes and consequently are very seaworthy and paddle extremely well.    We have been involved with waveskis and early sit on models for many years and as a kayak designer/manufacturer ourselves there was really no other choice when deciding which were the best brands to offer.  We have been stocking the Wilderness Systems Tarpons since 2004 and they can justifiably claim to be the ultimate sit on tops.  Islander are made in the UK as are the exciting new Tootega kayaks.
