We build boats that you will want to paddle frequently. You wont need your paddling partners help when you load your boat after work. With a Blue Otter Kayak its easy to make that escape. Our distinctive boats are made from high performance designs to match your needs, whether exploring anchorages or estuaries, day touring, or surfing waves.
Our kayaks are designed by Nick Schade of Guillemot Kayaks. Nicks Greenland influenced designs have been proven by paddlers around the world for more than 20 years. We have selected designs that suit intermediate and advanced paddlers and shorter novice friendly designs that may be accommodated aboard yachts.
worked in the kayak industry year round and demoed hundreds of different
boats. The Blue Otter Kayaks built Night Heron is one of the nicest boats I have paddled. The design is
superb for everyday paddling and craftsmanship is excellent. Even though
it is only 20 inches wide it has better stability than many 23 inch boats. It
takes very little effort to paddle, and is easy to turn." Rowan - Deep Cove.
