This Kayak is an excellent value and a really good Yak for Beginners. Very Stable Light enough for my kids to carry together Very Maneuverable and easy to handle, my 9 and 12 year olds were paddling around the lake in little time. Have made some trips with my 9 year old up a river (no whitewater) and it handled perfectly for him. I would recommend this to anybody looking for an affordable entry into the world of Kayaking and for any Recreational Kayak enthusiast. Easy to control and tracks nice. There is a drain plug in the back that is hard to get back in, use a blunt tip object like an allen wrench to make that easier to seat.

Excellent kayak for rivers, streams or lakes. I'm new to kayaking but after shopping around at a lot of stores and websites I couldn't pass this kayak up. $249.00 vs $499.00 at other stores. It's very stable, nice dry compartment, plenty of front storage for a weekend outing but do pick up a seat floatation device for extra comfort. I would recommend this product to anyone, it's that nice! See ya on the water.

So I was looking at starting a new hobby and kayaking really appealed to me. Shopped around and found this 10ft Aruba on sale for $249. Read the reviews and saw that the only common complaint was on shipping. Unfortunately, no Walmarts in my area had the green colored one in stock. So I ordered. Shipped on time, but loosely wrapped in slightly shredded plastic covering. Exterior of plastic was covered in soot or some kind of black dust, but once removed, the Kayak was sound. I figured luck played a part in that. Took the Kayak out on the water and was very pleased overall. Im 5'10", 215 pds and was initially worried about the buoyancy. Was not an issue and turned out to bear my weight easily. However, I found that the included paddle was not the proper length for me. During my paddling, I kept scraping both sides of the kayak. I attempted to alter my technique, but that only ended up in creating additional water spill onto my lap. Bought a longer paddle from Cabelas and problem was solved. Besides, grips and drip guards are a must. The included paddle will make an excellent backup to stow onboard during longer trips. Still attempting to find a proper fitting Sprayskirt for the Aruba. This is one minor complaint on this kayak. The lip of the cockpit is prominent in both the front and back. But the lip of the kayak cockpit is nearly non existent along the sides. I found a Seals Splash Deck Spray Skirt 2012 Large/Black on ebay for $39 (new) and ordered it. It is only a half skirt, but the bungy tie line should secure it soundly regardless of the sides. For those of you that need a full skirt, I can't help you. The lack of a bottom seat is noticeable after being out paddling for an hour or more. I purchased a fold out Skwoosh Paddling Cushion for $12.00 and it works perfectly. It is easily storable onboard the kayak when not in use as well. I also purchased a Bilge Buddy ($11.00) for soaking up any water spilled into the cockpit. It works wonderfully and is also easily storable onboard the kayak in the rear compartment with the cushion. So all in all, I am very happy with this kayak. Quality structure. Light and fairly easy to one man carry and load. Tracks nicely. The few flaws that I mentioned are minor and correctable for little pain on the wallet. For the cost, you get quite a great kayak!

So just to clarify a few things different from the picture: This will be the new model, which has two black rubber thigh pads on the lip of the kayak to protect your legs. It also says "Sun Dolphin" on the side, not waterquest. But they are both identical and both made by KL industries. Which brings me to my next point. The KL Industries "Deluxe" kayak is $100 more, and is THE EXACT SAME KAYAK, besides being blue and not green. So grab this one and save some dough if you don't mind the color. Also, the paddle pictured with this kayak is not the one you get. You get the one that is pictured with the Deluxe blue kayak, which is actually a terrible paddle. I was a bit disappointed it didn't come with the pictured one, because this one is a bit awkward. But hey, it's a free paddle, can't complain! Characteristics: Very stable without being slow. It tracks very well given its size, and is quite comfortable and maneuverable. Very easy to paddle and maintain momentum. People with short arms or short height will need a longer paddle, or you'll be hitting your hands on the lip of the cockpit. It's not the fastest, but it will do a decent clip. You'll get tired trying to keep it up for too long though, but it's a very nice cruising yak. Sits relatively high above the water, but I'm a relatively light frame. Very light kayak; able to be carried by one person to the shore and back over the shoulder. Features: Gee I wish it had a padded seat! But again, for the price, you can't complain. Buy a $10 stadium seat cushion and you'll be golden. Rear back rest is adjustable to nearly any comfortable position. Foot pedals can adjust to anyone's height and are comfortable. They feel a tad flimsy, but if you're not abusing them, I wouldn't imagine there would be any problem. Rear hatch is relatively watertight and decently deep, there's about enough room for a six pack of cokes in there. If you want more storage, it is very easy to cut the bottom out of the compartment to open up the entire rear for storage. The rear does not have a sealed bulkhead, so you will lose the isolation from the inside of the boat in case you get any water inside the kayak. Again not a big deal, put the stuff in a $10 watertight totebag and you're golden. Would be nice to have front storage, but the water bottle holder is fine by me. Plenty of room inside the kayak cabin and for storage near the front. The side paddle holder is handy and relatively tight, although I would not trust it to hold a spare paddle if paddling the kayak around. The carry handles are a bit cheap as they are just cording with a plastic grip. Tighten the knots or they may come undone. There is a drain plug in the back as well which is a very tight fit to get in and out, but I suppose that is a good and bad thing. Free paddle is awful, but will get you by until you can find one you like. At least they give you a paddle! Overall: I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because if bought at full price (~$290) I would be a bit upset about the paddle being so terrible, and not being the one pictured. Also, the lack of a seat pad is a little cheap, but again for the price it's still the best buy out there. Got on sale for $200 and worth every penny! Can't think of a better kayak for the price, and I did a lot of research before purchasing. Hope this helps someone who pays attention to all the details like me! :)
