One of the more popular kayak designs is the sit in kayak (SIK). These kayaks offer several features that make them a good choice for fishing and exploring. Most sit in kayaks provide room for storage, a lower center of gravity, and a dryer, more sheltered cockpit.
The sea kayak or ocean kayak, is a type of sit in kayak that is designed for longer trips and ocean environments. Sea kayaks incorporate a skirt which shields the hull from water intrusion.
Sit in kayaks are available in single seat or 2 seat models. They are usually propelled by simple double-bladed paddles.
