Kayaking as a whole has grown tremendously since we first opened our doors, and there are now more options than ever. We aim to stock some of the best brands on the market, covering a wide range of uses.
On one end, we have lightweight, nimble kayaks that are easy to transport and ideal for spending the day exploring Florida's springs and rivers. On the other we have fishing platforms especially made with versatility in mind, and the ability to be either paddled, pedaled, or motored.
Below is an overview of the brands we carry, each of which you can explore further the breadth of their selection.
Bonafide may be a newer kayak manufacturer, but they aren't new to the industry. This rock-solid fishing platform is brought to you from the founder of Yak Attack, meaning you get a kayak that is engineered to withstand anything the water may through at it, and offer anglers a tremendous feature set and breadth of versatility.
CURRENT DESIGNS KAYAKS

They're mainly known for their composite kayaks, producing lightweight fiberglass and Kevlar kayaks in styles ranging recreational, transitional, and touring. They also produce a moderate selection of rotomolded polyethylene kayaks for a range of fits.
Dagger primarily sells whitewater kayaks, something we don't have much use for here in Florida. But they also make some solid river/spring kayaks, and a great transitional, day-trip kayak.
Hurricane is a leader in thermal-molded kayaks. This innovative plastic offers all the durability paddlers have come to expect, but with a weight more in line with a fiberglass kayak. Hurricane offers a variety of kayaks, from the recreational minded Santee (sit-in) and Skimmer (sit-on), to the day-tripping inclined with the Sojourn family.
