  • Jackson Rivera Kayak

    Posted by Robin Richards on Apr 19th 2023

    I wear an AFO brace on my leg and no longer does my husband have to physically pick me up and set me in my kayak like before! As far as comfort goes, this boat is the best of any kayak that I have paddled. My arthritic hands even had an easier time maneuvering it down the river. I highly recommend this boat for seniors!!

    It took one time sitting in the Riviera for me and my friends to fall in love. We are all different shapes and heights and it is by far the most comfortable kayak I’ve ever had the pleasure to use. 5 minutes sitting in one and we bought a single and a tandem. We paddle for hours and never get back pain or numb butt. They are simply the best!

  • Rivera

    I’ve kayaked many times but this past year tried the Rivera for the first time as a rental. Now I’m buying one! Easiest kayak I’ve ever used. Well balanced, smooth in the water. Excellent. No shoulder pain after hours on the water.

  • Convenient and comfortable

    We love these! Simple, stable in the water, easy to clean, easy to load and haul, very sturdy, comfortable even for the nearly 300# person. We have a single and a double seater!

  • Great day tripper

    I talked a fellow out of his Rivera while on a float down Current river.
    They were everywhere and a staple for outfitter rentals. (Means they are tough)
    I was impressed with how nimble and easy to move the Riviiera is.
    It wouldn't be much on a week out or overnight trip, maybe overnight with a minimum of gear, but a superb, fast, fun, easy to get in and out of and maneuverable kayak.
    I borrowed it from a rather small fellow who said he found it comfortable as did I at 6'3" and 230 lbs.
    I seldom day trip but as I get older I may. When I do I will certainly find one of these if they are to be had.
