Inflatable kayak vs. inflatable canoe: What you need to know

  • Typically built to be sleeker than a canoe, an inflatable kayak paddles further and faster. High winds don't pose much of a problem.
  • Kayaks can handle more and different weather conditions and water types than canoes can. 
  • The closed cockpit on some kayaks keeps you warm and dry. 
  • The double-ended kayak paddle provides more control and speed, and offers more opportunity to develop your technique.
  • An inflatable kayak takes you from whitewater to recreational flatwater to the sea. You have many choices, and that's a good thing.
