Sun Dolphin Excursion 10 kayak 

If you are looking for something simple and inexpensive then the Sun Dolphin Excursion Sit-Inside could be a perfect option for you.

This kayak has a price tag of around $350 and has received very positive reviews from current users. What we like about the Excursion 10, it’s tough and durable and it’s lightweight, weighing 40 pounds.

Lifetime Sport Fisher Kayak

If you are searching for a great tandem kayak you and your buddy can use for fishing this model from Lifetime Sport will definitely provide you with a lot of value.

What we like is it provides plenty of leg space (three anglers can actually fit) and it can carry up to 500 pounds! A fairly big load!!! And priced just under $600 isn’t too shabby either.
