If you and your fishing partner are ready to take the leap into the world of kayak fishing, then this Ocean Kayak Malibu 2XL Tandem Kayak Deluxe Fishing Package is a great place to get started. It includes all the basics for two and can even be easily converted into a solo paddling kayak by removing and re-positioning the seats. The Malibu 2XL kayak includes 4 rod holder mounts, 2 rod holders & 3 hatches professionally installed. It also includes two Bending Branches Slice Glass paddles which are great for both beginners and advanced paddlers, two high-back NRS Chinook PFDs that offer great gear storage & organization options and seats and paddle leashes for two.
We just received two Malibu Two XL kayaks from ACK, both were packages, one with installed hatches. We are very happy with our purchases from the kayaks, to the paddles to the life jackets. The kayaks track pretty well whether tandem or solo. Ordering was very easy and the representative was nice and helpful. Glad we got the packages as buying everything separately truly would have cost more. We also like the sunrise color scheme. ACK packing job was the best I've ever seen! Overall, a great purchase and would order from them again.
The company uses a photo of a lime green kayak which is a complete misrepresentation of the color scheme. The company representative noted lime/white is a 60/40 color mix. The color scheme is more like 90%white and hues of limes at the tips only. Other small issues are noted. Truly disappointed in this purchase and experience. When you call a company to confirm a color scheme it should know what it is selling.
Images have been updated. In blended colored kayaks the color blends will vary from kayak to kayak. We attempt to provide accurate representations. If there are any questions on color please call prior to ordering.
I received my kayak with no damage via Estes Freight on 8/6/14. I was not able to use it until 9/29/14. I had purchased based on many positive reviews, and I was not disappointed. The kayak fishing package was well put together and the boat paddled well. I have not fished from it yet, but I think this will go well. I am satisfied with my purchase from ACK.
Excellent fishing kayak and a great value.
