No more need to road trip—you just found a better way to journey.

You used to road trip to the mountains when you wanted to go camping, but now that you have the Jackson Kayak Journey 14 Kayak with Rudder, you just paddle to secluded coastal inlets when you need a few days of relaxation in a wild place. Designed by world champion paddlers, the stable and easy-gliding hull is certain to please whether you're brand new to paddling or have a decade of experience under your belt. The Smart Track Rudder is easily controlled via adjustable foot pedals, and the seating provides serious all-day comfort.

  • 14-foot length and 24.5-inch wide hull is designed to be exceptionally stable and easy to control
  • Hull uses the same high-quality resin as the leading whitewater kayaks for unrivaled durability
  • Edge and hull are specially shaped to give beginners the stability and control they need while still providing the performance expert paddlers demand
  • Generous cockpit dimensions make the boat easy to enter and exit
  • Sweet cheeks seat has a bean bag interior that can be vacuum-formed to your body for a custom fit and next-level comfort on the water
  • Sure-Lock Backband provides cushion and support and is fully adjustable for custom comfort (just lean forward and pull each rope until the backband makes contact with your back)
  • Thigh and hip pads can be made looser or tighter by adding or removing foam at the back slots for even greater comfort
  • Smart Track Rudder system allows you to easily control the rudder via the gas-pedal style adjustable foot braces
  • Included Smart Track Rudder improves tracking and control in rough coastal waters and can be pulled up when you come in close to shore
  • Large bow and stern hatches provide enough storage space for multi-day paddling trips and feature injection-molded rims and covers for a watertight seal
  • Small day hatch directly behind the cockpit safely stows your camera, phone, and daily essentials
  • Bow and stern deck rigging provides versatile external storage options
  • T-Grip retractable handles at the bow and stern make the 57-pound boat easy to transport and load

So much control and comfort!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I found the Journey to be as easy to use as any of the competitive 14' roto touring boats, but two things really set it apart for me. One is the outfitting. Its just like what Jackson uses in its whitewater boats, and not only has all-day comfort, but I can adjust it easily to fit me, so I can brace in waves and not come out, and makes learning to roll much easier than with boats with rec style outfitting. Secondly, the hull of the Journey just seems to get more and more responsive as I spend more time in it. Playing in the surf, its very confidence inspiring. Same on fast rivers, or when the tide is at full speed, just a joy to paddle. Hardly use my much more expensive 16 ft composite boat since the Journey!

Fun boat!

Big fan of the Journey 14. This boat is extremely comfortable, easy to paddle, and stable. It's great for beginners but I enjoy pushing it's limits on long river trips. Its the perfect boat for a day paddle or a few nights when you want to cover some miles. Load it down, take it to the river, cover some miles.
