Old Town Canoe's Otter Kayak

If you’re new to kayaking and you want to get your feet wet with a simple boat that doesn’t cost a lot of money, but will give you a chance to explore a lot of what kayaking has to offer, you should take a look at Old Town Canoe’s Otter Kayak. The boat offers plenty of features in a small and easily manageable size that should give anyone a good first impression of kayaking.

Measuring in at 9 ½ feet long and about 28 ½ inches (a little over 2 feet) wide, the Otter is one of the smaller recreational kayaks out there. It’s about a foot thick and the cockpit opening is 19 inches by 38 inches. When all is said and done, this really means that the Otter, even though it is small, can easily accommodate most paddlers. The cockpit is slightly oversized when compared to other similar boats and the length and width of the boat is more than enough for all but the tallest of paddlers.
