If you like to fish from your kayak, you have to consider the Excursion from Sun Dolphin. This lightweight yak is ideal for rivers and lakes. The Excursion is a great starter kayak for those unsure of whether they will really get into kayak fishing. As mentioned in my kayak buyers guide, there are a number of things you should consider before buying a kayak.

What I don’t like about the Sun Dolphin Excursion

With deep strokes the kayak tend to yaw just a little bit. To be honest, most kayaks will probably do the same with deep strokes anyway.

What I love about the Excursion

This kayak by Sun Dolphin is very stable, and with shorter, shallow strokes it tracks very easily. It provides an excellent fishing platform, and I am sure you will pull out a number of big ones from this kayak, if you decide to get it.

The boat is stable, and provides comfortable seating for long fishing spells out on the water. It doesn’t weigh a ton, which makes it easy to handle. The wider body makes it very stable, and very hard to top (although not impossible!).

The verdict

The Sun Dolphin Excursion is a great starter kayak for those who want try out kayak fishing. It might lack in one or two departments, but at this price you would be hard pressed to get a kayak as stable, durable, and lightweight.
