What is a Recreational Kayak?

If you’re new to the sport, you may be wondering what a recreational watercraft is. Aren’t all kayaks designed for one reason—to travel across the water? Yes and no.

A rec kayak is specifically designed for calm water. We mean little to no waves, currents, or strong winds. It’s generally shorter and wider than other boats, like touring kayaks. This shorter length means they’re slower, but the width makes them more stable.

If you’re looking for recreational kayaks for sale, make sure you have the appropriate body of water in mind. These boats are not for tackling rapids or long distances. The shorter length also reduces their ability to paddle a straight line. Combined with their heavier weight means these boats aren’t ideal for extended adventures.

However, these sleek kayaks are perfect for a relaxing day on a lake or slow-moving stream. The enhanced stability means if you want to take pictures or fish in these recreational watercrafts, you’re less likely to have to contend with rocking. They also typically come with a larger cabin for greater comfort.
