Best Inflatable Kayaks of 2021

Whether you paddle calm water or white water, an inflatable kayak offers a lightweight, accessible boat that is easy to transfer and ready for adventure. They range from 7' solo inflatables to 16'5" tandem inflatables, from $150-$4,899 USD, and from 12-80 pounds in weight.

So beyond them all being inflatable kayaks, how much do they have in common? And more importantly, how do you find the best option for your paddling needs? Fortunately, your fellow paddlers have been paddling inflatable kayaks and sharing their experiences through reviews. By leveraging the reviews and experience that's been shared by thousands of your fellow paddlers, they've helped narrow those dozens upon dozens of options down to the best of the best.

We will break it up into the Best Solo Inflatable Kayaks and the Best Tandem Inflatable Kayaks.

The most important piece of gear every time you go paddling is a life jacket! Don't become a statistic!

Tips for Buying an Inflatable Kayak

There are tons of things to consider when researching or buying your inflatable kayak. Before you start shopping solely based on price, you first need to consider:

  • How, Where and With Whom you plan to paddle with?
  • How do you plan to transport your inflatable kayak? Make sure that the packed dimensions and weight are suitable for your transportation method.
  • Number of Seats - solo, tandem, or 3+ paddlers? Some inflatables can be converted from solo to tandem and afford the optional flexibility.
  • Read these inflatable kayak reviews - especially with inflatables, you'll get a sense for the durability, ease of inflation/transport, and types of waters that each boat has been tested on.
  • Try it before you buy it. Research is key, but nothing beats getting on water with a boat. Talk to friends, borrow a boat, and contact your local retailer for a demo.

The best inflatable kayak for you is going to be different than the next paddler. And that's okay. You have to factor in everything from your experience, planned water types, durations, budget, and preferences. So use this list as a starting point. Get some ideas, read some reviews, look through the entire kayak gear guide, maybe browse the message boards, talk to your local paddlesports retailer or paddling groups, and get out and try it before you buy it! And, of course, when you're done, be sure to help the next paddler in their search by submitting a review!

Your Review Matters

This list was based primarily on reviews from paddlers just like you. If you have paddled an inflatable kayak, be sure to submit a review to inform others and have a voice in how this list is made.
