Kayaking Travel & Safety Accessories


Every kayak should have some form of added flotation. Since people prefer to customize their boats in different manners, you can choose between our innovative bulkhead and hatch kit design or float bags (shown below). These limit the amount of water that can enter your boat when swamped. No matter which form of flotation or safety gear you find fits your needs, every kayaker should practice using their equipment.
