The Aegean is an absolute blast. Its big, its roomy , its stable and its just tons of fun. Perfect for all conditions including lakes, rivers, bay and especially the ocean. Almost impossible to flip but if it does, just climb back on. If you have a large family or large dogs that you wanna take with you...load 'em all on and head out. This thing will hold your whole family. Ocean Kayak discontinued it but if you can find one on the used market, grab it.
