A durable, stable, yet responsive kayak, the Ocean Kayak Trident Ultra 4.7 is a fishing kayak like no other. The Trident Ultra 4.7 has more volume in the front of the boat for a drier ride, a moderate rocker to help performance in ocean swells, and a more pronounced tail fin to aid in tracking. It features Ocean Kayak's proprietary multi-functional reversible hatch cover that includes attachment points for fish finders and other accessories and has the unique ability to rotate 180 degrees along a pivot point to "flip" to shield and protect valuable electronics in rough surf conditions. The tail fin on the Trident Ultra 4.7 features a replaceable wear strip that will add years of life to the kayak as it weathers the inevitable bumps and bruises of rocky beach launches and landings. Rudder is standard equipment on the Trident Ultra 4.7.

In October I paddled my ultra over 330 miles from central Ga.to the coast taking thousands of wildlife photos along the way while averaging 30 miles per day without much effort.I decided it was the perfect boat for such a trip(I own 10 others).The bow is like a sports car,the cockpit is like a comfortable sedan and the stern is a pickup truck.Great boat, I might even take up fishing so I can use it for its intended purpose.
unwrap and check your kayak BEFORE signing off on it. wrapping wasnt damaged but kayak was ! 2 small chunks missing on left side near decal. long gouge at front left side. Again'packaging was great- boat was damaged before shipping obviously. be sure to order rubber clasps that hold ice pod in the boat. mine didnt come with these so how do i attatch? ridiculous that the rubber snaps to hold in ice pod are not included.
I have used one of these for several years. I take it a couple miles offshore into the Gulf from the Florida panhandle. You do catch nice fish out there - blackfins the last two times out. This kayak is great for that environment. It was obviously designed by someone who knew how to get the hull right. I see what looks like a medium large wave coming at me and it just seems to disappear under the kayak. Both stability and speed are great. I have had to paddle a couple of miles into a wind and medium waves to get home and I'm in my 70s. This kayak does the job. I have known people to go offshore 5 miles in one of these, but 3 miles is my limit on a good day. I have learned that the limiting factor on whether or not I can go fishing on any given day is the size of the waves at the beach that are trying to keep you from launching more often than other factors. Other things I really appreciate are the large hatch in front of the seat that is unique to this kayak; and the 4 molded in rod holders. Do make sure that when you go offshore by yourself - as I do - that, first, you are a good swimmer, that you carry a personal emergency beacon and an extra paddle, and that the tether you use for your paddle is not old and worn out. I.e., think about your safety before you leave the beach. I have learned that the hard way and was very lucky.
Whoever designed this kayak thought of everthing.I do not fish but do wildlife photography .and it fits my needs perfectly.I plan on using it on a 384 mile trip from The Ga.piedmont to the coast.
