Great buy if you are searching for a 10 foot sit on top fishing kayak for under $400

The following review will point out the main features of the Sun Dolphin Journey SS Kayak and also provide past customer ratings and opinions on this model. Are they satisfied with their purchase? Anything bad you need to know?

We wanted to provide you with the best video review of this 10 foot Sun Dolphin Fishing Kayak but all we could find is a short video with bad music that we hated. So instead of subjecting you to that we are using a video that displays the 12 foot model which is identical in design just 2 feet longer.

As you watch the video realize the guy has made certain modifications such as installing a fish finder and compass. These items are not included with the purchase of the kayak. The video does an excellent job at showing how much value this model provides for under $400.

It’s always amazing to see human ingenuity. The guy in the video did a great job of modifying a fishing kayak that costs less than $400 and adding a lot of extra value to it.

Be Aware of What’s Missing

We will tell you what the customers say but first we want to make you aware of something. The Sun Dolphin Journey SS Kayak doesn’t have scupper holes!

You know the little holes that allow the water to drain out when you’re on the water fishing? Is this a problem?

Sun Dolphin Journey 10 SS Kayak scuppers

No Scupper Holes

If you look at this sit-on-top kayak and compare it to most other models, you should notice the hull has very high walls.

Fishing in calm or semi-rough waters while having no scupper holes shouldn’t be a problem since the wall height will prevent water from spilling in.

However, if you are looking for a good kayak to take out in the ocean or in other rough waters to fish then this model probably wouldn’t be the best choice for you.

Note: If you are worried about water getting in with no scupper holes to drain it,  you can always invest a few dollars and buy a sponge. They work great to get rid of excess water.
