Intro to Kayaking

Which Kayaks are Best for Kids?

Kayaking kids should check out these Perception boats:

  • Hi Life - A sit-on-top that is part kayak, part SUP and fun all-around.
  • Prodigy XS - The ultimate sit-inside kayak for kids and petite paddlers.

Tandem Kayaks like the Rambler or Tribe are another great option for family fun.

Kids also need life jackets or personal flotation devices (PFDs) specifically sized for them, clothing that will protect them in the wet environment, and a paddle with a smaller diameter shaft and blades designed for smaller paddlers.

These accessories are generally available at your local Perception dealer, or at Harmony Gear.
