We will be closed and transitioning into our new location, 3435 30th Ave N., St Petersburg 33713 from the 24th through the 31st.
The basic difference between kayaks is whether you sit inside a cockpit, with your legs and hips surrounded by the boat, or whether you simply sit on top of a hull.
Most river kayaks are sit-insides, but if recreational coastal boating is what you’re aiming for, sit-on-top kayaks are the ideal choice, especially in the warm Florida climate.
We specialize in sit-on-top because of our warm climate and also because sit-on-tops are easy to get on and off, even in deep water. Sit inside models should be boarded in shallow water or on land.
We are proud to introduce an ALL NEW series of kayaks from Old Town! This is the Topwater series which includes their pedal version. Watch the video on the left to learn more:
West Coast Kayaks is proud to feature another excellent line of kayaks in our store, The Enjoy Kayaks line provides a wide range of kayaking styles; from relaxing on 2 stadium seats in a tandem to playing in the surf on an 9 ft single!
There are 8 kayaks in this line, 3 tandems and 5 singles.
Starting from the smaller options, we have the Key West; at 8'10" very easily stored, while providing plenty of kayak for storage and capacity along with an incredibly defined eel for superior tracking in a shorter kayak!
Up to more of our fishing models, we have the Bonito and Bay 12.
The Bonito is in a league of its own! At 9'2" it has an aluminum-framed, stadium style seat, giving the paddler maximum comfort while out on the water!
The Bay 12 is just the right size to load and unload solo, giving you plenty of kayak both for capacity and storage but also a very wide body to allow the rider to stand up and do some sight casting. It accomplishes all this and still remains true to the simplistic kayak fishing
For our tandem models, we have the Key Largo 12'2", and the Cruiser 13'.
The Key Largo is packaged with 2 deluxe thermo-formed seats for a very comfortable ride, and comes with 2 10 in storage hatches, along with 4 flush mount rod holders.
The Cruiser 13, by far one of the most comfortable tandems on the market, coming with 2 stadium style seats, several rod holder mounting locations, 2 large rectangular storage hatches, and a flat and wide open deck to maximize open space and even to accomodate a dog.
The newest models to the Enjoy line up are the Convertible series; with a 10'3", a 12' and a 14' model to choose from these kayaks cover everything from paddling, to pedaling, to power!! All 3 models feature a modified catamaran hull design for superior stability and an interchangeable drive system; simply by pulling 3 pins, you can switch between paddling, adding in a prop driven pedal system or go all in with a 36 lb thrust saltwater trolling motor to give you extreme maneuverability. Come on by and check out the Bay 10 Convertible, the Bay 12 Convertible and the Pedal Cat Tandem!!
