Wider and more stable than Touring Kayaks. Ideal for beginner paddlers and those who prefer stability over speed. Intended quiet waters and slow to medium moving rivers. Typically 15 feet (4.57m) or less.
For longer trips across open waters and can carry a fair amount of gear. More efficient than Recreation kayaks but less manueverable and stable. Typically over 15 feet (4.57m) providing very good tracking.
