The Paluski Riptide Kayak is the best all around recreational kayak made in Canada, yes it is made right here.
When Pat and Graham told us they were redesigning a pure Greenland model kayak into a slightly shorter recreational model we had our doubts, but not anymore.
Andre was chomping at the bit to get his hands on one last spring as they were in high demand. When he test paddled it we could not get him out of it.
This kayak will replace all of our other models for a rental kayak, it is that good.

With a built in handle, really comfortable seat we could paddle for hours, and often do.
The rubber hatches are convenient and accessible making the perfect all around tripping kayak, and our rental customers who were lucky enough to get to test one out last summer agree.
But, what really sets it apart is the intangible and very substantial stability factor. I just felt really secure in this kayak, almost as though the guys at Paluski took 10 years to design and test it, which they did.
The perfect recreational and tripping kayak for the novice to intermediate paddler, even a great cottage kayak because of the built in handles for securing the kayak to a tree if need be, it just works great, give it a test paddle.
