A while back we wrote a review recommending the Sun Dolphin Aruba 10 foot kayak to people wanted only a simple inexpensive recreational model for light paddling on calm lakes or slow moving rivers.
After writing this review we began to receive questions from customers asking for information which we had either not covered or only glossed over in our original report.
Note: A fair price for this model would be around $350. We would not recommend paying much over this price.

I was thinking about buying this model for my kids is it a good beginner’s kayak?

Is it recommended for river paddling?
Recommended for people 6 feet or taller? If not, could you recommended an inexpensive alternative for taller paddlers?
Can the Aruba 10 be taken in the ocean or rough bays? If not, could you recommend a low priced model that would be more suitable?
Does it come with a spray skirt or can it be fitted with one?
Does it come with a padded seat? To our knowledge the seat is comprised of only an adjustable backrest. Meaning yes, there’s a support or seat for your back but it does not come with a full seat, one that will cushion your rear-end. Good cheap full seats.
