When you use ocean touring kayaks to go out on the open waters you will find that they are much easier to handle than some of the other styles, they are designed to be easier to paddle since you will be traveling in open waters. Since some of the adventures that you may take when using a touring kayak can last for days being easier to paddle is a big help. They are also designed more for comfort and with lots of storage space for the same reason. You will be able to carry all the necessary equipment needed to make your trip a safe and thrilling one.
Touring kayaks are designed to carry one or two people. Many people like to team up and go kayaking in groups. When kayaking on the open waters it may be easier for you to stay safe if you travel in numbers. This is especially true if you run into problems and the kayak flips over. Since the touring kayak is designed heavier and larger it could be very difficult to turn one back over if you are by yourself. However, many experienced adventurers do tackle the open waters alone. If you fall into this category then you want to make sure that you take precautions to stay safe.
Recreational and day-trippers are shorter and wider than expedition kayaks. They are designed for shorter trips. A single person kayak is (9- 14 feet) long and (23- 30 inches) wide. A tandem is usually (12- 15 feet) long and (30- 36 inches) wide. These kayaks are easy to get in and get out. There is an ease of storage and transport. They are highly maneuverable, stable and can track efficiently. Recreational kayaks are less expensive then rigid sea kayaks. They are perfect for outing, fishing and family trips since their wide shapes provide stable platforms.
Sit - on kayaks have many advantages. They are stable and can be used for swimming, fishing, and day trips, they are easy to drain and easy to right. The drawback to this type is that you are always going to be wet, so your activities are restricted to the warmer months.
Tandem boats are great if you want to carry an inexperienced kayaker or a child. They are heavier than other kayaks so are not fast and they handle more like a boat. Some models have additional seating for small children and extra cargo.
Now that you have some idea about the differences in kayaks you can decide which type you want to start with. You can find a number of models that will suit your needs and more research through a buyer's guide can help you settle on your ideal kayak.
