Sit-on-Top Kayaks

Sit-on-top kayaks (SOT's) are often regarded as the most user-friendly kayaks. They are super easy to get in and out of, their wider structure makes them very stable, and there is no feeling of being confined on them. A sit on top kayak is self-bailing, which means that water drains through small holes called scupper holes that go right through the kayak! Since they don't get flooded, this makes them great kayaks for cautious paddlers and kids. 

Sit On Top Kayak Benefits

As mentioned, a sit on top kayak is perfect for beginner kayakers. Not only are they easy to get in and out of, but they are also easy to re-enter. First off, if you do flip your kayak, you will easily fall out of the kayak and won't be in it while capsized. Once flipped and you need to re-enter, you'll find that they are fairly light and easy to flip back over.

SOTs are very popular in warmer climates as they make for great platforms for swimming, diving, and of course, kayak fishing.
