What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sevylor Tahiti Hunt and Fish Kayak
  • The product is fine but just FYI it is a 2 person Kayak not 3 and is only rated for 360 lbs
  • The product is fine but just FYI it is a 2 person Kayak not 3 and is only rated for 360 lbs
  • Better for 2 people than 1. I'm a big guy and sitting in this lifted the tips enough to make the skeg I bought useless. All of my weight made me the lowest point in the kayak of which all water tracked in became a neat puddle for me to sit in the whole time.
  • Bought this kayak for my husband. He wasn't thrilled with it. He said it felt like trying to get on to a pool toy. A little flimsy for his liking.
Sevylor Riviera Inflatable Two Person Kayak
  • Used our Riviera on Loch Lomond,had loads of fun with it, no problem guiding it at all, and carried 2 adults (not small) may I add perfectly.
  • Good for 2 adults or 1 adult with 2 children...The more weight inside the harder it is to control (obviously).
  • Great item easy to inflate plenty of room for 2 adults will use it on actual water at the weekend hopefully it does not deflate or have hole in it
  • The kayak itself inflated very nicely but could not take the weight of me and my daughter although between us we were below the reccommended weight.
  • Carries one large kid and one adult with ease on a long outing.. Two adults will fit, but not particularly comfortable.

What customers say about "Construction"
Sevylor Tahiti Hunt and Fish Kayak
  • It's easy to inflate, and is lightweight enough to toss on top of car for short trips to lake.
  • It's sturdy and works well. I would buy it again.
  • Great quality. Can tell this will last a long time. Very roomy.
  • Very sturdy and comfortable! You'd have to try to flip it. My boyfriend and I took it out a few days ago and had a blast.
  • Great little Kayak but needs a fin beneath for directional stability
Sevylor Riviera Inflatable Two Person Kayak
  • Excellent canoe, very durable and very well made.
  • Not yet tested other than inflation but material is robust and paddle is bigger than it looks in the picture. Seems to be worth price paid for a beginners inflatable kayak.
  • Made of good quality tough material, easy to inflate and deflate and light enough to carry.
  • The material is very strong - I have bumped and scraped it many times in shallow water or against jetties and it has not punctured.
  • What fun has been had already! Very portable, extremely durable and incredibly good fun for use on river or sea.

What customers say about "Features"
Sevylor Tahiti Hunt and Fish Kayak
  • This boat is very stable and two small kids bouncing around will not affect much.
  • We love this inflatable kayak, the kids have lots of fun. Easy to set up and deflate, very light to move. I recommend this to everyone.
  • Works perfect. Very lightweight and packs small. Best summer
  • As an engineer, I can imagine a better design, but I haven't found one like I would imagine at such a great price as this.
  • The seats don't let you sit upright to steer the canoe very well.
  • You need to order the skeg with it so you can go straight if there are waves or high winds.
Sevylor Riviera Inflatable Two Person Kayak
  • The backpack system is great, this inflates and deflates quickly and its easy to put it back into the backpack system for transporting it. When on your back the straps are not the most comfortable with the weight but bare-able.
  • The seats are not fixed, which is great because you can adjust leg room for each person.
  • The back pack function is brilliant and makes transporting to waters edge and back to car really easy. Would highly recommend!
  • The paddle supplied with it is complete crap and broke within ten minutes of using it and was thrown away. Buy a decent foldable paddle instead.
  • The oars could be better, it felt a lot of wasted energy, we will be buying separate. We have also bought the skeg to help with stability. Kayak also blows around a bit in heavy wind.
