Fun, friendly, and just for the kids.
Paddling a big boat might make your little rascals grow up big and strong, but it'll also make them grumpy, sad, and whiny. If you want to turn your days on the water from character-building, complain-fests to fun-filled splash-a-thons, the kid-specific Old Town Heron Jr Kayak is the boat you'll need. The lightweight, kid-sized design will have the munchkins racing circles around your big, ponderous container ship of a kayak.
The Heron Jr tracks well for easy paddling and maneuvers as quickly as a friendly mongoose to minimize the time they spend stuck in the reeds. The boat's fitted with an internal foam billet so they can't send it to the bottom of the lake when they tip it over. A comfy seat keeps backsides happy, and best of all (for them, anyway) is the Tag Along Tow System, which allows the Heron Jr. to easily hook up to another boat for a relaxing ride around the pond while you get in that extra workout.
