Amazing $300 Walmart Kayak

Sun Dolphin Journey 10 SS. 10 foot 44 lbs. I'm 6 foot 1 and it's pretty comfortable. Besides not having a seat cushion. The center holding area is NOT waterproof. Thanks Deb Brown for the heads up.

As the owner of one of these kayaks I can say that this kayak is not as good as people say they are. The kayak is light and is small , but be prepared to not be able to control this kayak at all. If you weigh anything over 150lbs be prepared to get wet (I would say to get supper plugs but, the scupper holes weren't drilled out all the way so when water does come through the holes it gets squirted onto your ass) also the "DRY STORAGE" isn't very dry when the paddle drippings fall into the kayak. I'd say don't waste your money and purchase an ASCEND 10T it will be worth the extra $249

Sundolphin, Potomac and Pelican brand kayaks are all inherently unsafe for use under any but the calmest conditions. It's exciting to get your first kayak, but be mindful of the significant safety limitations of these craft. They are not designed to handle stream current with any speed nor waves of any size. Always wear a life jacket while on the water.

Great first kayak. I have one. One thing I highly recommend is adding a fixed rudder. Bought one of these on eBay for $22.

Can be made retractable. Makes paddling this kayak 100 percent better.

I have one of these. I installed a fixed rudder on the back of it and now paddling it is so much better. It tracks really straight. Long journeys across the lake even in waves and wind are so much easier now. Don't have to spend half my time trying to steer, just need to make minor adjustments while paddling to stay on course.

My wife and I have these kayaks. My kids have the smaller kayaks also from Walmart. They are good beginner kayaks and a good way to get out on the water without a crazy initial investment. I am 6'1" about 240 lbs and the kayak is a little small and doesn't tack well, but again I'm able to get.on the water and have a lot of fun.

DO NOT put your phone in the center "sealed" compartment with screw on lid. I have this kayak and it leaks badly in that compartment. Other than that, this is a really nice kayak I have 2 of them. I would recommend it for sure. Screw paying 1000$ for a kayak, that's retarded.

Nothing wrong with that boat other than people need to pay attention to the weight capacity of 275lbs if you are at least 50lbs lighter than max you are good. As a big boy this boat would not ride me very well as I am at max capacity. I bought a 12ft Kayak that holds 350lbs and that is just a fact of life. If you are a fat ass stay away from 10 footers and look at 12 foot boats.

i have this kayak and love it to death other than the fact its so unstable i can hardly move in it. made quick outriggers for it and seemed to suffice but if your over 5'10" just forget it. im 6'0 183lbs and its a nightmare, my gf however does fine in hers so maybe my center of gravity is just too high. I would suggest to steer clear unless your on the smaller side

I bought this one and the SunDolphin Bali for my wife, since she's not as intent on fishing, and the one thing I want to do is either buy or build a skeg for each. They also feel a little tippy, so I might be thinking about some outriggers.

I want to like this so much for the price and is exactly what I want but just doesn't track well at all for me... spend more time adjusting direction than going forward. Very exhausting & frustrating! I've been in the 10ft Sit In version of this and is perfect, runs straight and true with no issues...just sits too low in the water for my weight and takes on water constantly. I might see if I can trade it in for a 12ft sit on and pay the difference. Hope the 12ft doesn't have the same tracking issues.

Jacob Maas

Anyone who buys this kayak in the video if you haven't already returned it please do so. Great idea with the designs but they need to rethink the stability portion and weight distribution. Back end sits too high in the water, tracking is terrible and is very unstable for anyone 190lbs or more. I don't mean to disrespect anyone who owns this especially the guy who posted this video. Just want to warn people before they decide.

I bought this Kayak recently and love it ! I got a steal... $278 from Walmart in Tax Free New Hampshire, but I also got a %10 discount from using a Walmart Associate's discount ! So it ended up being $250.20 out the door ! Quality and fun rig!

I had that boat. I'm 5' 6" and weigh 155lbs. It's rated for 250 lb capacity but the self-bilging stops after about 140 lbs of weight. I ended up splitting some pool noodles and using Shoe Goo to stick them in the seat area and cut grooves so the water would flow under. Water pools in the seat area and the bilge holes are high. It's fairly stable. It doesn't track well. I used it to pilot for a swimmer in a 10-mile swim. Every time I stopped paddling to give her food and water, the boat turned sideways instantly. I never fished out of it, but I think it would work well for that.

Why in the hell is there no listing for the weight capacity of this kayak. Even the detailed ad listing specifications only lists it as a one person kayak. If a person weight 200+ gets in that little 10 kayak it is bound to be unstable do to overloading. it ought to be against the law to not list the Coast Guard approved capacity of any vessel.
spudrubble
spudrubble - 4 years ago
I'm a kayak newb but know boats pretty well. My question is why dont people fill the empty space between the two hulls with two part expansion foam like the do boats? At least on a boat it adds more ability to float and I would guess stop it from filling with water.
spudrubble
spudrubble - 4 years ago
Not sure on the floating level since again I am kayak dumb, weight should not be much since I dont think there is a huge gap between hulls, at best I'd guess under 10 pounds
Aaron Rankin
Aaron Rankin - 4 years ago
I like that idea a lot. My only concern would be would it float level afterwards? And how heavy would it make it?

MrJdiffend
MrJdiffend - 4 years ago
It looks like the same construction as my Pelecan but with cheaper hardware and without the comfortable seat.
The carrying capacity appears to be 250 lbs so heavier people might want to opt for an 11 or 12 foot model.
If you put too much weight in it you'll have water coming up through the scupper holes and keep things wet.
If your kayak has the proper carrying capacity you should see water part way up in the scupper holes but not staying in the passenger area. Scupper plugs will keep the water from coming up in the kayak due to waves or rough water.
There are some scupper plugs that let water drain out but block it from coming in, but they don't work on models like this.

Rodney Hamilton
Rodney Hamilton - 4 years ago
The problem with the scupper holes on the 10ss is that water comes up through them when you first get in it and move away from the shore. You can put plugs in them at first then remove them if you need to drain any water. Then put'em back in again. That works for me.
Thinking Impaired
Thinking Impaired - 4 years ago
Yes I did find that out. Because the journey 10ss is not recommended for open water I probably will plug the scupper holes. If I had a 12 foot that I could take out into open water I would then leave the holes open because of splashing.
MrJdiffend
MrJdiffend - 4 years ago
A lot of things you do will get water in a kayak, and you will want it to drain out.
For example, if you have a wave or boat wake break over your boat, or if you tip over.

Rodney Hamilton
Rodney Hamilton - 4 years ago
For enough money, you can get a fishing kayak with a standing platform. If you try to stand up on the 10ss, prepare to get wet. There is no way I could. Some people have built cheap outriggers for the 10ss to make them more stable.
Thinking Impaired
Thinking Impaired - 4 years ago
Thanks Rodney at the time I didn't realize that sit on kayaks were stable enough to stand in. Because I fish cold water I was thinking that a sit in would be more comfortable. As for journey 10ss sit on, I'm going to try standing on it at least once. I don't know how stable it is.
Rodney Hamilton

The sit on's seem to be more popular with fishermen, but the sit in's are more stable.

+Has Your Actually, I was breathing hard because I just took a dive into water that was about 35-40 degrees and then had to haul that boat up about a 4ft embankment while it had about 4 gallons weighing an extra 36 pounds in the hull. Its called doing work , young man. If you ever try it, you might get a little winded to. Just for the record, I run between 2-4 miles 4 times a week, making a mile about every 10 minutes. So definitely not an Olympic runner, but by no means a fat ass.

i've been kayaking for 20 years, kayak fishing for 12 years and i've bought many kayaks at this point. i started out borrowing one, then bought a cheap one and eventually ended up spending $2000 on one. don't let anyone mock you on an inexpensive kayak, most people start that way. if you like kayak fishing enough you will eventually upgrade. upgrades will improve tracking, storage, and seat comfort. those are great qualities but not necessary to go out and catch some fish. good luck to you and everyone starting this hobby, it's a great time every time.

Wow, there's a lot of haters.
Look here's the deal, are you tired of shore fishing? Watching all them fish jump just out of reach?
This is a great 'introductory' kayak.
It's 300-375$ you get everything you need to get out on the water. Once you get the hang of it, then yea, invest in something on the higher end side. But if it turns out a kayak is not your thing, well, you didn't waste 1,000$
300$ is a good price to tell you if kayak fishing is something you may be into.
I mean seriously, who started fishing with a 500$ rod and reel setup?
No, you start small then invest more as your passion grows.
Stop being ignorant.

I had the ss 12 Journey. I wanted something smaller for easier transport so I bought this version. It was smaller and a little light to tote around but.. it tracked awful. The slightest breeze spun me around.. I bought a SUP and sold this kayak. I am going to pick up another ss 12 Journey. This is just my 2 cents. Look at the bright side, it gets you from A to B. You can still fish from it.

To all the haters out there, I want to know what's wrong with this kayak? I read tons of comments on videos about this boat and people say it's a POS, but why? People who actually own the boat seem pleased with it. I'm highly interested in one to fish the variety of small lakes around here. For fishing locally in and around my home town the numerous small lakes seems like my best bet.

+Charlie Wilson : If it floats, gets you where you need to go, doesn't leak and you are comfortable in it then its not a piece of crap. There are gear snobs everywhere and will rag on anyone who buys something less expensive from Walmart. Just like the guy selling you to throw away your $10 zebco rod reel combo. I grew up on these and fished them for decades. Yes they are cheap and don't last long but if you catch fish with it, then who cares. Thats what its all about right?

+Charlie Wilson nothing is wrong with it for a starter kayak. people with better kayaks feel the need to mock and tend to forget they started with stater kayaks. i borrowed my first one. my advice is to check craigs list, a lot of people buy expensive yaks and don't use them and ultimately sell them for cheap. i bought a $1300 tandem for $400 a few years ago.
trapangler
trapangler - 4 years ago
+Charlie Wilson I have no input on this boat, however I do have to say that any roto-molded kayak will be better. You can pick up a pelican boost angler at dicks for the same price and its all one piece, and thicker. Will stand up better to rocks and drain water much better.

people with their exaggerations I tell you..
I love my low end kayak, 10 feet long, can stick in back of MY CAR, light weight, easy to transport, easy to put in water after work on the way home.
yes I have an over $1000.00 dollar kayak too, your not going to take low end kayak to beach offshore to catch grouper, but this little kayak catches fish very practical.
guess what? side by side little kayak been out in the water more then big kayak.
guess what?
little kayak has caught MORE fish then big kayak..
guess what?
more fun because you can get out and fish more on little kayak then big kayak.
congrats!!!!

The downside to silicone is that when you want water to drain through those holes it won't. An example of this is when I am in the ocean breaking through the waves the yak fills up and will eventually drain out of the scupper holes. But it's a great idea if you need a permanent solution.

Hey Aaron never mind the punk asses out here with the negative attitude. If you like what you have and it gets ya to where your going thats all that matters!!!
I too started out with a cheap one at a grand after taxes,when I got into kayak fishing. Did a lot of research on a few and what would suit my needs. Since we had no demo's of anything that I could try, in my area. Besides I didn't want to blow big money on a yak if I didn't like it in general.Figuring I wouldn't lose too much on a return or if I decided to sell it.. I have to say I got lucky because it turned out to be a good yak for being mass produced.
I still have her to this day and still take it out. After two upgrades it still does fine!
If anything you can gradually work your way up to something better. So paddle on and enjoy! what you have. Be safe and tight lines.

Honestly, this kayak doesn't look bad at all for its feature hull design with a deep cargo back as well a deep seat for better control. By looking at the hull from below, I notice it's a twin-arched multi-chine hull, if I am not wrong, which has good stability and tracks decent, I bet. Speed probably isn't the best, along with decent maneuverability and I'm also worried about the material used to make this kayak.

In your opinion. I only go out once in awhile on my 10ss, and for the money, it serves its purpose well. I can fish my ass of in this thing. I fish on small to smallish reservoirs in calm water. Why dish out $1000 bucks (after sales tax and paddle) for that. It is not junk, it simply does not meet YOUR needs. Others needs are not the same. And that goes for your bicycle analogy as well. I bought my daughter a bicycle at Walmart way the hell back when, and it worked nicely for the, once in awhile, short distance riding she did, when she had time to ride at all". It is the same with cars as well. My POS edition Suzuki Aerio gets me where I want to go all the time, every time.

I use it mainly for spearfishing when I don't want to take the boat out and the transfer from getting in the water to on the kayak is pretty easy and the kayak will not flip. You can't stand on it, it's very difficult and unstable if you try and you will fall. It serves it's purpose and you get what you pay for. If you're planning on using it every weekend and go out with your friends that have higher end kayaks then no do not buy this... But if you want a decent all around kayak just to start off or see if you like it then this is it. The MAIN con I have about it is that it doesn't fit a milk crate on the back which I was highly disappointed but whatever I managed to install a small cooler in the back to throw in drinks, and whatever fish we catch.

+WisGuy4 I have used the the Sundolphin 10' sit-in for years and I love it.  Sure, I had to make some adjustments, but that was part of the fun.  Check my channel for proof, you can do what you want in this kayak if you're willing to learn.  I haven't tried the sit-on, but the sit-in is a great value.

+Alex Vazquez   Alex, I have no idea whether or not your comments have any credibility because of several factors:1)   First, as someone else commented below, you use extremely juvenile language that suggests that you are not a knowledgeable person with valuable and insightful opinions, but an angry teenager.2) You fail to support your opinions in any way - just saying "it's decent" doesn't provide us with enough details.  Does it track well or are you always paddling and correcting to avoid going in circles?  Is the seat comfortable?  Is it stable enough to stand in to fish?  That sort of basic information is what someone looking for an entry-level kayak wants to know, not "Dewd, ur a &&&@! )(U*)# if you don't agree with me!!!"You may be entirely correct in saying that higher end kayaks are a really poor value for the extra amount they cost.  I went in to my local high-end kayak and canoe store and asked how their bottom-end kayak, at about $800, was worth more than two and a half times the cost of $300 discount or sporting good store kayak.  I got a dirty look, some hemming-and-hawing, and some vague comments about better ... stability and tracking, along with a comment about how "you would understand if you could try them out side-by-side."A $600 mountain bike (the price point used to be $350-$400 until about 4 years ago when the manufacturers tremendously cheapened up their entry level bikes) is a vastly better bike than a $200 discount store Huffy - it will weigh about 7-10 pounds less than the cheapo bike, have more gears, shift smoother, have a better seat, better tires, lighter wheels, be more rugged and reliable, etc.... it will just be all around better and the improvements one gets with the higher priced bike are very obvious.  That's not obviously the case with a $300 vs. $600 or $900 kayak.  Unlike with cheap vs. expensive canoes, more expensive kayaks aren't dozens of pounds lighter.  The more expensive kayak will have a bit better seats, a bit better storage compartments (probably about an extra $100 in cost at most), but that's really about it and it doesn't explain the extra $200 to $500 or more in additional cost.  I've thought about buying this kayak at my local Farm and Fleet store for $280, but the negative reviews really make me hesitate, with complaints about leg room, water leaking in, and bad tracking - see for yourself:http://www.farmandfleet.com/products/822998-sun-dolphin-journey-10-ss-sit-on-kayak.html

+Broke Yakin They dont require more "skill". They require more physical labor because they are poorly designed kayaks and they work against you. Tracking and stability is important.

+Alex Vazquez Thats the thing dude, its really just not even a decent Kayak. Lets take your bike analogy for example. . Would you EVER recommend anyone to go to a big box store and buy a wal-mart mountain bike? Even for a beginner bike, i doubt you can justify anything from wal-mart or k-mart etc. . Any reasonable person with knowledge would (or at least should) tell them to buy nothing less then an entry level Giant or something along those lines. . . .


Its true for kayaks too. . . 300.00 is not going to get you a new fishing kayak worth putting in the water. 5 - 700.00 for a Perception Pescador/Striker . . . Ascend D10/128t. . . Field and Stream 120 etc. . is where anyone in the market should start if they are not buying used.


There really is nothing good about this walmart kayak. its complete junk

golfclub nut - 5 years ago
So my first kayak was a cheaper $300 yak from Dick's Sporting Goods. I thought it was a good kayak b/c I didn't know any better and hadn't paddle any kayaks at all. I mean how much different can a $300 plastic boat be from a $900 plastic boat? Well,  a couple years later, I bought a WS tarpon 120. The difference is like night and day as far as comfort and tracking etc. So in hindsight, I feel that I 100% wasted my money on the cheap kayak. I would suggest for anyone buying a kayak demo different kayaks of different price ranges and you will find a big difference. I don't mean paddle them for 10 minutes either to see the difference. I mean paddle for the whole day etc.

You're welcome.  The 3 oz tube was more than enough sealant. I used maybe a quarter of it.  Try and find the black sealant.  The white doesn't look so good against the olive color.  But it is sealed well and that stuff sets up really well and is very durable.

The kayak is only made to be placed on calm waters. It is a decent kayak for that need as well as catching fish out of it. 

The scuppers do suck on the kayak but at least you have some. The dry storage can be used with a water proof casing. Tank well (back of kayak) will hold a grocery "personal" shopping basket.

Luck to all.

(apologies if any of this came up elsewhere) Another resource to look at is West Marine.

It's actually my first kayak so i don't know.  I've had it out three times so far.  It works fine on the inter-coastal waterway but when i took it into the Atlantic Ocean the hull filled with water to a point that it was hard to control and even a bit dangerous.  When i returned to the beach i tipped it on it's nose and almost 2 gallons of water came out of the hull.

+Prince Gerald Standing in a kayak, like any boat is desirable when sight fishing. A couple of examples which come to mind are Bass fishing when they're chasing schools of bait fish, and Western Style Fly fishing when there is a tendency to have a long back cast, as well as forward cast. While being seated is probably more comfortable for most anglers, casting a fly rod is more efficient when standing. As for you not stating "it's impossible to stand in a kayak", you did say, "I don't think standing is an option in any kayak" which rather implies a lack of possibility. Perhaps you meant for yourself, rather than the collective kayaking community.
