Here we tried to find the 5 best beginners kayak in May 2019.

1. SUNDOLPHIN Sun Dolphin Aruba Sit-in Kayak (Blue, 10-Feet)

Sun Dolphin Aruba 10-Foot Sit-in Kayak is no#1 on our list. This kayak does a great job staying afloat with a large cockpit. Above all, This kayak is a good value for its price.

Pros: It is very lightweight. One can get inside and out of it easily and it quite stable in the water. There is Ample storage in this kayak. To clarify, on the front, there is a decent water bottle holder, paddle holder, and dry storage. The rear compartment is also useful if you want to take your valuables to kayak, it is hard to access though while you are kayaking. But it is alright if there are other people who can paddle up to you and access for you, otherwise, it is hard to turn around and access it.

The rear compartment has a rubber/foam seal around it and is secured by bungee cables arranged in a star pattern that hook onto the plastic hooks on each side. The shape of the plastic around the lid makes it really easy to just sit on top of the hole instead of sealing and covering it. Most importantly, It keeps the compartment very dry while just paddling, even if a light wave comes.

Cons: Access the back while kayaking.

2. Ocean Kayak Frenzy

Pros: Ocean Kayak Frenzy is well made and nice finishing. It comes with a moderate price. This kayak has metal fittings for the seats and handles. In addition, High-quality material used on the padded seat and topnotch stitching. A good kayak comes with good handling power. It is very stable on the water even when there is a big wave and also very steady to paddle. The seat on it is very supportive, but they could use a little more cushion on it to make it more comfortable.

Cons: Seat cushion is not comfortable.

3. Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 Angler Kayak

Pros: Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 Angler Kayak is easy to maneuver and easy to paddle on the water. Moreover, This kayak has sufficient storage in the front and access to more storage in the center and for the most part. The seat is adjustable and very comfortable. In addition, Paddle straps are convenient and easy to paddle.

Cons: A little heavier than other kayak.

4. Lifetime Tamarack Angler 100 Fishing Kayak

Lifetime Tamarack Angler 100 Fishing Kayak is a decent kayak for the money. This kayak is good for a beginner but suitable for advanced people also.

Pros: There is plenty of storage in the underside of the kayak, accessible just behind the seat, but it is difficult for me to access this while floating. Lifetime Tamarack Angler 100 Fishing Kayak is not a super fast kayak, but extremely sturdy and decent tracking. Overall it is great, versatile and fun. Tracks well and not bouncy.

Cons: The paddle ok, but you may want to upgrade to a better one.

5. Vibe Kayaks Sea Ghost 130 | 13 Foot | Angler

Pros: Vibe Kayaks Sea Ghost 130 | 13 Foot | Angler has a Sturdy construction, and very stable.  The seats are quite comfortable. Plenty of storage space too. Tracks amazingly straight for a large kayak. Moreover, It is also easy to paddle.

Cons: Too heavy. Rudder works but I find it a hassle. Storage compartment in the middle needs to be on a hinge, not snaps.
