Review The Lagoon 1 Kayak Before You Buy
Our first experience with this inflatable kayak came in late summer, docked at a rest area on Lake Vermilion, in northern Minnesota. This is a great lake to visit, scenic and great fishing.
Two young boys were paddling near the shore both were in this Lagoon 1 kayak model, we spoke for a bit and one of the boys even let us try his out for ourselves.
We would like to give you our thoughts and review this model from our perspective, to help you understand if this is the right one for you before you go and buy it.
What’s Important to Know
- Since so many customers consider price a very important aspect in their purchasing decisions then if you plan to purchase the Advanced Elements Lagoon 1 Kayak online you shouldn’t pay more than $330. See the best price we found.
While this model one of the better inflatable kayaks you can buy online for under $400 there are a few things you might want to consider besides the price before deciding this is the right one for you.
Have we heard any complaints
For the most part, the people who have bought this model have left positive reviews. But this is what we have heard on the slightly negative side.
We came across a couple complaints about troubles inflating the kayak. What we did find surprising is not only were the complaints wer responded to by the company and also by owners.
The first guy complaining was having troubles with completely inflating. His problem was answered quickly. It turns out this guy was using an electric pump which did not have enough power to completely inflate this model.
The guy was using an electric pump which didn’t possess the power to completely inflate this model. If you have an electrical pump with enough power great. If not, you will need a manual pump hand or foot pump to ensure full inflation.
Another guy complained the air tube inside broke as he was inflating. Well, common sense is cheap… The company responded and offered to replace his tube.
We like how the company Advance Elements responded to this compliant and was so willing to fix the problem. Seems like a very good company to buy from.

What We Noticed
If you have read our review from the beginning then you know we got to test this kayak. From our experience this is a very, very stable kayak, its fat or wide in the middle, it’s going to take a lot to make it flip over. But there is some trade off.
The Lagoon 1 Kayak has great acceleration, however, it’s definitely lacking in top speed capabilities. If you are looking for a very stable inflatable then this is a good choice. If you are looking for the fastest on the water you will want to look elsewhere.
Who Should Buy It
- This model is just over 8 foot long, carries up to 250 pounds.
If you are a taller person over 6 feet tall, the Lagoon there probably will not have enough leg space for you.
Also, if you are well over 200 pounds and plan to carry equipment, you need to consider it’s carrying capacity of 250 pounds before you go out and get this one.
Who Is It Best For
We label this as a beginners kayak, the Advanced Elements Lagoon 1 kayak has very good value priced at under $350. It’s a very comfortable model to tool around on the lake, bay or a tame river. But definitely not a professional racing kayak or one you would want take out on a raging river.
And don’t forget to consider size. This isn’t recommend if you are a taller person and considered the carrying capacity of 250 pounds.
