Watersports Sea-and-Touring Kayaks Sea Capella Venture
Capella

The Venture Capella has reasonable speed and good stability providing a good all round option. It will cope well with long distance touring, bay hopping and coastal exploration.

What makes a boat better for sea kayaking? They are longer than touring kayaks for greater speed, must deal effectively with wave action and wind, and often have a drop skeg for enhanced tracking.

We stock a range of one and two person sea kayaks ranging from basic and simple Valley Aquanaut Club which is housed on the Club, School and Group Kayak page, to the well featured personal use plastic boats like the Dagger Cortez, to the highly sophisticated and customisable P & H Capella.

Be sure to check out the sea-going options in our Touring and Recreational Kayak section as well.

The choices from Dagger and Necky will suit most users, but everyone should take the time to admire the premium ranges from P & H and Valley even if they aren' t planning serious ocean or expedition paddling.

For safety, we recommend all sea kayakers carry a bilge pump, and we carry a range of paddle floats in inflatable, solid foam, and self-inflating styles. Silva produce a range of compasses especially for sea navigation, and elsewhere in tha catalogue, we have a selection of Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

 

By touring we mean paddling trips on flat or calm water, from an easy hour to a full day or more. Our recrational boats include fun things for playing with the family, easy to paddle kayaks with generous allowances made for comfort and safety, dinghies, and canoes with foot pedals and small motors.

What makes a boat better for touring use? They are longer than many conventional river kayaks for greater forward efficiency, but are also wider and offer greater stability than higher specification sea kayaks. They will have offer fittings such as hatches and bulkheads for storage of your packed lunch, and may have a drop down skeg for improved tracking and large easy access cockpits.

For short coastal day trips, we recommend the Venture Kayaks Easky and Dagger Charleston series, which both tick all the boxes listed above and are equally popular with staff and with customers. You should also look at our range of dedicated Sea Kayaks.

The Tek Sport Rockhopper is designed for playing about close into the shore. It is tough and makes a great toy.

At the other end of the scale, the Valley Rapier series are sleekly designed for speed at sea, for racing, fitness, or just for the fun of it.

For safety, we recommend all sea kayakers carry a bilge pump, and we carry a range of paddle floats in inflatable, solid foam, and self-inflating styles.

What makes a boat better for recreational use? They should be open or have large easy access cockpits with a more relaxed fit with the emphasis being on comfort. There should be carrying capacity for your lunch and gear, and most of all, they should be aimed right at having fun.

If you will mostly be on rivers, see the range from Pyranha, Dagger, and Liquidlogic. It will also be worth looking in our River Running and River Play sections. We have pages for high quality inflatable kayaks and one for fishing kayaks and canoes too
