Great add-on for any kayaker!

I got the Adventure Canopy bimini for my WildernessSystems Tarpon 12. Shipping was quick, and the install was painless. I used the slide track nuts on the back and drilled the front following simple instructions. It comes with different poles for height adjustment, which I did use.

I live on a lake in Louisiana, and the summer sun is downright brutal. I did plenty of research on bimini tops and chose this one because the design looked so much more stable than others.

I was still a little worried about how the canopy would do in the wind out on open water. The first day I took it out was windy and choppy. The poles have just enough flex to let the canopy sway a little in the wind without moving the boat. I didn't feel like it affected my paddling at all. If it did, I was too busy enjoying the shade on my shoulders to notice. It really makes a huge difference and is noticeably cooler. Less sun equals more energy and more enjoyable longer paddles.

I really got a chance to test it on a 28 mi camping trip down the Sabine River between LA and TX. It breaks down and sets up easily for travel. At the end of the trip, I had 15 jealous, sunburned friends.

This is a must for anyone who spends lots of time in their yak. Well worth it. Go ahead and get one. You'll thank yourself later.

On top of the great product, Adventure Canopies has amazing customer service. The owner, Matt, has reached out personally to follow up and is clearly dedicated to his product and your satisfaction.

I'll be paddling happily in my own shade for years to come.

Great Product & Great Customer Service

I purchased the Barracuda for my fishing kayak and absolutely love the product. Matt was very helpful before the purchase answering all of my questions and he followed up after the purchase to make sure I was completely satisfied. The product is very high quality, fits perfectly and is a must for fishing in the summer in Florida. I researched many products before selecting Adventure Canopies and by far, Adventure Canopies has the best product. I would highly recommend .

Great product and Great service

I researched a number of canopies on the market and found that Adventure Canopies has the best product by far. Matt was very helpful answering my questions before I made the purchase and also followed up after the purchase to make sure that I was happy with my purchase. This canopy is a game changer for fishing in the summer in Florida. The product is very high quality and works great. I would definitely buy again.

I bought the guppy canopy...

I bought the guppy canopy for my Hobie Revolution 11 kayak, and this bimini rocks! It was easy to install, it doesn't interfere with paddling or the mirage drive operation. I had enough head room and it really kept me shaded. I had always wanted to use my kayak mid day in Alabama, but it was so hot and not shaded where I live, that I didn't use my kayak that often in the summer. Well, now I have my own shade, thanks to this bimini! I anticipate using my kayak a lot more. I bought the yellow shade and it does a good job of reflecting the sun's rays, and it's very stable underway, and I went out under breezy conditions.

So far so good. I just...

So far so good. I just received my canopy this weekend and I am very impressed. I own a tarpon 120 and it fits beautifully. I ended up buying a second set of track mounts because I didn't want to drill into the kayak. Fits perfectly, keeps the sun off and leaves plenty of room for fishing and paddling. I am about 6'2" and I have tons of head room. Customer service is excellent, talked with Matt a couple of times about installation and recommendations and he was very helpful. Will give an updated review once I have used it more but for now 10/10!

I love my new canopy. Easy to install. Easy to store once you figure out how to collapse it. Keeps both sun and rain off you while kayaking. Allowed enough room for my dog even. Got a yellow one so might be easier to spot if I loose it in the river. Excellent customer service.

During my 20 years as a kayaker, I've longed for a way to cope with the hot Southern sun. I considered the DIY route, but wasn't convinced the examples I saw online would be adequate. Commercially-available canopies didn't impress me, either - until I came across Adventure Canopies. The design simply makes sense. It was easy to install and works great!

I love this product! Keeps sun off effectively and allows room for fishing. Perfect custom fit for both sizes of kayaks we own.

I absolutely love my canopy we bought from Adventure Canopies. With the summer heat I would not be able to be outside enjoying my kayak this year. Easy to install, very attractive, and keeps me cool while enjoying the summer even on the hottest summer days.

I have been kayak fishing...

I have been kayak fishing for over 5 years. With temperatures reaching 100 plus, I wonder what I'm doing out there wishing I had a canopy. I have searched and seen a few and haven't really liked any until I saw this one by Adventure Canopies! The assembly is extremely simple especially when you just want to jump out into the water. Not only is it a great product, but the customer service is outstanding! All my questions answers in a timely professional manner. I highly recommend this product. It is a must!

What can I say .. the product is a game changer… I live in Florida, and spend a lot of time in the ocean bow fishing and there is no shade out there…. and July through September in the Keys is brutal ….. the canopy makes the difference between being out there for a few hours and staying all day…. the quality of the product speaks for itself .. top notch …. easy install too…. and another small Plus , I got the bright orange canopy .. helps to be seen by boaters… thanks Matt…. great customer service….
