The quality of your on-water experience can often be directly linked with the quality of the equipment you use. That's why we have invested in your experience. Our sea-kayaks from Boreal Design set the bar for rotomolded kayaks in comfort and quality. The optional rudder system gives you an extra element of control over the kayak. Our Personal Flotation Devices (PFD's) from Stohlquist Waterware have high backs to take best advantage of our comfortable seatbacks. And of course since you wont get far without a good paddle, we have chosen adjustable 2 piece fiberglass shaft paddles from Werner for there light weight and customization.
The Acadia 2 tandem Kayak by perception is our standard 2 person kayak on the Ashley River at Middleton Place. It provides a comfortable and stable platform for paddlers to explore the waters of the upper Ashley.
The Wilderness Systems Tsunami 140 and 145 are stable light touring kayaks with comfortable high seatbacks. Whether you are new to paddling or a seasoned paddler, the Tsunami offers great performance on the water. All of our singles at Middleton Place are Wilderness Systems Tsunamis, with two different lengths to accommodate a wide range of paddlers.
The new Epsilon series of kayaks from Boreal Designs offers high performance, great stability, rudder controls, and a custom fit . With 3 sizes to choose from, P100, P200, and P300, your sure to find the right fit. Boreal Designs are among the top of the line in both rotomolded plastics and fiberglass boats. Two full hatches at the bow and stern and a convenient day hatch offer plenty of storage for gear for longer trips. The Epsilon has superior tracking, so leave the rudder up, but if you find yourself in strong winds or currents, just drop the rudder and keep paddling.
The Esperanto is our full sized tandem touring kayak from Boreal Designs. It has the same great features and bomb proof construction we have come to expect from Boreal, but room for the whole family. It has two full sized closed cockpits and an optional child seat for the large middle hatch. Stable but fast, and easy to maneuver with the rudder system despite its length. Sometimes two really is better than one.
