Sea Touring Kayak or Kayak for Touring

The Venture Kayaks Islay is a 14 foot touring kayak that is available in two size options. This is perfect for coastal kayaking tours and also fast kayaking trips down your local river.

Venture has designed the Islay in two different sizes, the standard size suits paddlers in the 55-130 kg weight range while the Low volume suits paddlers in the 45-100kg weight range. The shell of the kayak is made from a single layer high density polyethylene, it then features a 24cm front storage hatch and a 42 x 30 rear storage hatch.

The deck design of the Islay features a full array of kayak deck rigging that also incorporates a paddle park. In front of the cockpit there is then a moulded in section that is designed to take a Venture Storage pod which offers an extra 3 litres of carrying capacity for smaller items which you want close to hand. The cockpit system on the Islay touring kayak is all about comfort and performance. The thigh braces are well defined so they offer good control, while the seat features a supportive backrest and comfortable bum pad.

The Islay features a drop skeg, this is easily deployed and retracted by a control which is located at the side of the cockpit. The addition of the retractable skeg will really enhance the tracking when paddling on a windy day.
