Reviews & Questions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Pelican Argo 100 I started kayaking last year using rentals each time I'd go out. I decided to purchase my own but found the research to be overwhelming. I stopped by Academy one day and walked out with everything I needed to get on the water. This kayak is lightweight allowing me at age 65 to self load it on top of my SUV. It handles well in the water and I've had no problems in keeping up with my those in my group using more expensive kayaks. It's does great in class I and class II rapids, but I'd be nervous going beyond that. This is a great entry level kayak for beginners and those not looking to spend a lot of money on a kayak. I see using this kayak for many years before upgrading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend for beginners like me I bought this yesterday, and took it out this morning. I am a 56 year old woman, and this was my first time in a kayak ever. I watched a few videos about getting in and out, paddling etc. I was a little nervous about how the getting in would go, but it was incredibly easy with this kayak. It is very stable, and I had no issues with tilting. It moved through the water smoothly. There is plenty of room for me, a cooler and the fishing rod I plan to take next time. I truly cannot imagine a better beginner kayak for novices such as myself. The adjustable foot pegs were a cinch to adjust while sitting in the boat. The seat was comfortable for the two hours I was in it, and getting out proved to be much easier than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! My husband bought this kayak for me 2 days ago. I have been wanting one for a while. After trying out several in the store(seats/length/sit on vs sit in) I made my decision. Well this is my first kayak but my friends have had several or been on them anyway. Went to the lake today and had a blast!!!!! Fishing in it was great too. Rod, bait, life vest and plenty of room for more. Myself, 2 of my best friends, my teenage daughter and my teenage nephew all took turns. My family will be purchasing 2 more and my friends are getting ones like this one too. After 8 hours on the water it was still just as comfortable as when I first sat in it. My 13 yr old nephew who weighs 95 pounds toted it with ease down to the water(100 yards) and I toted it back without struggling. So whether you're a beginner or experienced this is just a great kayak which I named "Suzzie". Lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new toy While I have many years’ experience fishing from canoes, I have never tried a kayak. I bought a Pelican Argo 100 for fishing small creeks and rivers. I read about many styles of kayaks and studied long and hard before I made up my mind. This seemed to be a very good choice. It was just that. Very stable, tracked well and easy to fish out of. Being 68 years old, I didn’t want to spend a large amount of money. I have never felt like I had to have the most expensive model of anything. I took the kayak out today and had a ball fishing out of my new toy. Easy on the back and legs, no problem sitting and moving around casting. Can’t go wrong with this one. You will enjoy it as much as I did, I am sure of that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kayak at a great price! This I a great kayak! It is very stable. I wouldn't advise standing in it but it is imposible to tip it when sitting in it. It tracks very straight. I is very quiet for fishing boat docks for bass. There is no need to spend extra money for another sit in kayak. This is the exact same hull as the more expensive ones. The seat is very comfy. This kayak doesn't come with rod holders but you can buy them seperatly. The places are premolded all you havce to do is screw them in. This is a very couslimisasble kayak. with lots of molds for hole to install add ons!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Glad I Decided on This One My wife and I decided to try kayaking so I started shopping. I read tons of reviews and ads for so many different sizes, brands, and features. When I brought these Pelikan Argo 100's home, I immediately knew I had made a good choice. Once we got on the water, I knew I had made a great choice. I'm slowly equipping them with accessories to make them into "fishing" kayaks. Adding leash points, rod holders and also a GoPro camera mount. These kayaks are light weight, but very durable. They are very easy to get them to go where you want. We have spent several hours on the water and they are extremely comfortable throughout the entire day. I highly recommend the Pelikan Argo 100 to anyone looking to getting into kayaking. We absolutely love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stable and Lightweight! This is a great kayak for a beginner. It is very stable and lightweight. There is plenty of room inside for a 6' man. Lots of storage space. I added a couple of rod holders and now I have a fishing kayak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck!!!!! Bought this pelican argo 100 this weekend. First day out cruised around the lake for about 4 hours. Very comfortable, and stable! Very lightweight and easy to paddle. Flatter bottom helps glide across smooth water. No problem in heavy wake either. Very pleased with purchase and will highly recommend!!!

How about stability,etc for one person to use?

Asked by: yakster
We do not recommend to use a tandem for 1 person. It will not be as stable and the tracking will not be as expected. You would need to add a weight on the empty seat to even out the stability.

There is no shed/boathouse where I can the canoe in the winter, so I'm wondering if the kayak can be stored outside. My cottage is on Rice Lake, Ontario.

Asked by: ashir88
You can cover your kayak with a tarp if it is left outside, we do not recommend to leave it in the water in the summer as it can damage the product. People have left their kayak under their balcony covered with a tarp and have not seen damage to their kayak come Spring. It is also important not to mount anything over it or have it lean up against something else.

I weigh 310 pounds, assuming I'm not bringing any gear other than a life jacket, will I be able to operate this Kayak given that the capacity is only 375 pounds?

Asked by: Richard
You should be fine. The closer you come to the Maximum Capacity the lower the boat sits in the water which creates more drag and thus more effort to paddle. Nevertheless, at 82% of overall capacity, you should still get good & decent performance plus, you are well within the limits for safety and security. Have fun out there!
