Sun Dolphin Kayaks

Kayaking is growing in popularity, and Sears has the gear to get you involved. Sun Dolphin® sit-on kayaks are ideal for recreation and offer you both fitness and fun on the water. All Sun Dolphin kayaks are made in the U.S. of rugged and dependable materials.

Ask An Expert

Why should I get a sit-on-top kayak?

Sit-on-top kayaks are the most user-friendly. You can easily hop in and off of them to take a swim. Plus, if you don’t like the feeling of confinement, they would be ideal for you. They're also great if you want to simply meander on a sleepy river. And if you want to do some fishing, item #41910 gives you a large, comfortable seat and adjustable foot braces to help reel in the big fish.

Check it Out

  • Kayak anglers need to travel light. If you are new to kayak fishing, you will need to streamline your load, including smaller tackle boxes and an appropriate anchor.
  • Always remember to put safety first by wearing a personal flotation device.

How About That!

When kayaking, you should keep your legs bent a bit to prevent back strain. Before you take off, extend your legs and bring them into the foot wells and make sure you are comfortable. All adjustments should be made from the shore.
