Canoes/Kayaks for Children

Junior Kayaks specifically designed with Kids In Mind


Most kayaks, whether they are closed cockpit or sit-on-top models, are designed for adult paddlers with sufficient space and weight capacity. Children can "make do" with some adult kayaks but they are far from ideal.


Kayaks and canoes for children are smaller in size, volume and weight. Kids will have more fun, progress quicker and improve their paddling skills with a junior kayak.


The kayaks listed on this page are recommended for junior paddlers.
