Looking for a kayak that suits all levels of expertise? Look no further! The Manatee fishing kayak is perfect for beginners, intermediates, and advanced kayakers alike. Whether you’re out for a leisurely paddle or a fishing trip, this kayak is the way to go.

Our manatee designed for paddling in lakes and rivers, but this fishing or touring kayak is no stranger to the ocean and small surf either.

As a compact single sit-on-top kayak, we don’t think there is a cooler touring and fishing kayak than our 9-foot, single, sit-on-top Manatee. Like its namesake, our Manatee is also happy to cruise the waters alone or in pairs.

The 9-foot Vanhunks Manatee plays big brother to our 9-foot Whale Runner kayak and features a few extra comfort and convenience trimmings, such as the accessory tracks, and deluxe aluminum adjustable padded seat. And while Manatees themselves may seem large, heavy and slow, ours weighs in at a comfortable 23kgs and can undoubtedly make lakes, rivers, and oceans quick and agile work.

Rest assured, you’ll have 150kgs to carry before your Manatee fishing, and touring kayak starts to lag.

Our 5mm rotomolded Polyethylene Manatee fishing kayak is professionally designed and rigged to provide maximum stability, maneuverability, and performance on the water. The Vanhunks Manatee is known for its playfulness in small surf and gets you heading back out through the breakers quickly with its fast turns. And given its width of 32 inches, you’d feel steady as a rock while standing and fishing from our beloved Manatee.

Spending all day out on the water will not put a dampener on your comfort levels, either. Our raised deluxe aluminum seat ensures you’re not going to be getting soaked by water spray pooling beneath you. The Vanhunks Manatee fishing has a deluxe aluminum seat that has a breathable mesh fabric.

Ideal for beginner, intermediate, and advanced kayakers, your Manatee fishing kayak is the perfect choice for any leisure occasion, and the premium quality marine-grade stainless steel and captive brass inserts will ensure you have many days out on the water together.

The Vanhunks Manatee fishing kayak is UV resistant and proves impressively durable.

  • Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, the Manatee fishing kayak is an excellent pick for any fun water adventure. It’s made from top-notch marine-grade stainless steel and captive brass inserts, ensuring you’ll have countless enjoyable days paddling away.
