    Sun Dolphin Aruba 8' Review

    I've had this Kayak for a few months now, and I have already taken it out around 6 or 7 times on various bodies of water. I'm 5'11" and around 180 lbs. It's the perfect budget Kayak! Get it while it's cheap! I have taken it out on small lakes, a big lake, a couple of smaller creeks and even the Ohio River. While I wouldn't recommend this for heavier rapids at all, it is a nice, easy to maneuver kayak. I'll list out the pros and cons, and then a bit more on my kayak specifically. Pros: - Easy maneuverability (it will turn on a dime!) - Very lightweight - Small enough to fit on top of a small car (I use ratchet straps, paracord tiedowns (for front and back) and pool noodles for it to rest on and it works like a charm with zero slipping, even at 80+ mph). - Perfect starter kayak - Cheap! Cons: - Being cheap, it doesn't come with a lot, so you will need to get creative if you want to add anything - It can be very wobbly at first. It does not come with foot pegs, so you may want to consider adding some. I can understand some of the complaints regarding instability. However, once you get used to placing your feet in the right place, you're just fine. - The default seating with hurt your butt in no time. If you're going to add anything first, add a seating pad! Otherwise, your rear end will start hurting pretty quickly! I have also made modifications to mine, instead of spending hundreds of dollars more on a kayak with such additions. I wanted an easy, affordable way to make an on-the-fly fishing kayak if I needed one. As you can see in the picture below, I added a seat cushion (a must!), cleats for a homemade anchor, paddle clips for the side (the paddle rest grooves that are already on the kayak aren't all that great. Easy to knock the paddle off.), storage compartment for the back, fishing pole holder and a raised solar garden spotlight mounted on top of a short pvc pipe for night time adventures.

    Bought little Aruba 8 in early May! Had a chance to use it on a big lake. It ran so straight and true. I never had a problem with purchase, and operation of this little cutie of a kayak. I went two miles for first try this spring. Plan on taking it out for longer trips. I love the paddle holders storage options and the light blue color. I never fussed about no footrests my feet keep dancing around anyway. I sold my 10 footer today and will keep the lighter sun dolphin. This Aruba also turns on a dime. Walmart has the nicest sales people. Please do not have it shipped! Go store shopping and get it off the rack. Check it out for your kids and older adults. Happy summer!

    A fun boat that is light enough to be easy to carry and fit inside my car! Added a rubber handle on one side to make carrying even easier. After three years of not being able to lift my larger boats to the top of my car, I can now stop at a put-in on my way home from work and snag a couple hours of quiet boating before the sun sets. WARNING: this boat is very tippy so you need to always wear a PFD and super-activate your "balance muscles"! Even gliding over a barely submerged tree trunk can cause the boat to tip alarmingly. That's not enough to keep me off the water, but I will avoid going out when windy and there are waves. For such a small boat, it tracks fairly well. All-in-all, a surprisingly good purchase that included a free, 2-piece paddle.

    I just bought this kayak to use on a private lake and so far it's perfect. The light weight is easy for me to carry on my own, and putting it on top of my car isn't a problem. I haven't kayaked in years, but this product made it easy to pick it back up. It's pretty stable, you'd have to lean pretty far to swamp it. The storage compartment is very small - I had trouble fitting my GalaxyS4 into it, so you might think about getting a dry box or something else for valuables, there is plenty of room in the nose for it.
