The kayak we chose for our kayak rental fleet

Updated: Apr 1

We chose the Wilderness System Aspire 105 kayak as our primary boat in our rental fleet. The decision was easy. We wanted the best and we didn't care what we had to do to get it. The Wilderness System Aspire 105 is a phenomenal boat for beginners. Its primary stability makes the boat feel unsinkable and is great for new paddlers. Intermediate and advance paddlers also love this kayak because of its exceptional maneuverability. This is a great boat for flat water paddling and rivers with moderate current and Class I and Class II rapids.

If you want a boat that is built for comfort and performance, this is your boat. The Wilderness System's Phase 3 AirPro seat has 3 easy adjustments you can make on the seat. You quickly can raise the back rest for upper back support, or drop it down for lower back support. You can recline your back rest or set the back rest for straight posture. The best adjustment is under the seat which allows you to raise the bottom of the chair under your hamstrings. All of these adjustments allow you to customize your ride for optimal comfort. The TruTrack adjustable skeg system will keep you going straight on open bodies of water.

This is not a cheap boat though. If you want the best, then you have to be willing to pay. This boat retails for $1,049. If you are interested in a used one at the end of the kayaking season, please give us call.
