Question for experts, is this a good deal? Also, is this good enough for light kayaking, or I should get something better?

Nothing like white water kayaking down some serious rapids with your $80 inflatable kayak from Walmart

But what if I’m not thinking about rapids. What if I’m only going to put this on lake and North Saskatchewan River on a calm day?

I personally wouldn't take one of these out on the open water.

for sure. I don't even know how to swim properly, so for me it's absolutely mandatory.

You are totally fine on calm water. I had a couple of intex inflatable kayaks and I had so much fun with em. Those naysayers remind me of folks who claim v6 engines are needed on highways in order to pass cars.

Or a $700 bicycle for your once a month around the block ride!!

I bought the last 2 in Georgetown but will be returning one, my sister did not want it.
should be back in stock by tomorrow!!

**i have a Pelican sit on top kayak, an intex K1 Kayak and now this one.... no idea yet how it will be but, might as well give it a shot. I only go out on lakes and we only do so 4-5 times in the summer... if it holds its shape, it should be good enough for my needs

I've seen decent reviews on the intex ones and I dont think they were overly expensive (120-200?) They seem to go on sale often as well.

We had an intex mariner inflatable bloat, and the material on that was super heavy duty compared to their regular series stuff, but no experience with these hydro force.

And dont underestimate the north sask river - we had a coworker get their boat tossed on a fairly calm looking spot and left them stranded in the middle of know where.

I just tried this kayak in a nearby lake for the first time on the weekend. It's quite slow and hard to control with two people in the boat, but that could also be a skill issue. I was not concerned with safety at all. The thing feels very durable.

Just don't use the hand inflator that comes with the boat. Do yourself a favor and use an electric pump if you're going to get any inflatable boat.

we have (had) this one and loved it until we got a slow leak. Also, I agree with you on the skill issue, a single one is easier to manage if you are both into it

+1 on the inflator comment... save yourself the heartache!!

There were several rescues locally over the long weekend, where people took inflatables like these out on to Georgian Bay and nearly drowned. That is enough experience for me, and I know better than to buy one.

These inflatables are good on very small and calm lakes. Don't ever take them in windy conditions. You won't get back to shore.
