When I saw this kayak online, I thought to myself, this is too cool! How come no one thought of this years ago? So, the first opportunity I got to check it out first hand was in Key West.
I signed up for what looked like a nice tour, called “Clearly Unique”. The Skipper (and Owner) Chance and his guide Terry were very informative, pleasant and accommodating. They took us to a mangrove lagoon where we had the chance to explore the area in the transparent kayaks and witness the wild life above and in the water. The view beneath us was exactly what I expected: it felt like I have put my snorkeling mask and set off to explore the marine life.
Later, the tour took us to a ship wreck site, where we had the chance to snorkel for real and I even managed to get on one of those paddle boards and enjoy the sun, while having a good work out rowing away. I later learned that this Kayak can easily be stored, when collapsed and it is also pretty light- something everyone should take into consideration when traveling. Unfortunately, when I checked on Amazon, this Kayak was not available yet, however you can get it directly from the Clear Blue website. Check it out in the Shop page of this site.
