I've had my kayak for about a month now. I love it, it's pretty easy for me to move
around and at 130 pounds with scrawny arms i can pick it up to load it on the back
of my ford escape easy enough. Granted I cant just pick it up and hoist it over my
head, the center handle made picking up the front end and sitting it on the rear of
my car a breeze. Then I just pick up the back end and it slide up there a breeze.
The only thing this package is missing is a kayak cart, which for thirty bucks you can
build your own out of PVC pipe. Highly recommend that! I can park anywhere and
just pull my kayak anywhere :) the additional storage is awesome and there's plenty
of room on the back for my dry bag, cooler and whatever else I throw back there.
The seat so far has been good. It's durable and hasn't flown off going down the
road. The only negative I have at the moment is the nylon fabric that stretches over
the front storage hole. That is a TIGHT fit, once off I can't get it back on by myself.
I'm hoping after a little more use it will give a little. The delivery was on time as
scheduled, they even called before they shipped it out to see if there was anything
else I needed before they closed the box up. The life vest that comes with the
package is nice, though I ordered a womens specific life vest when I ordered my
kayak. That is the one I use and it's very paddle friendly. The paddle that comes
with the kayak is good, I may switch it out down the road for one that is a little
longer. (I have long arms). So it's more for my own personal preference. If your
thinking about investing in a kayak I would highly recommend getting a package like
I am pleased with my purchase
and all items in this package. It
was great to be able to order
everything together; definitely
saved time and money. I have
taken my kayak out and
absolutely LOVE it! Highly
I am thrilled with my Ocean
Kayak Venus 11 Kayak Package.
Nice to have everything I need
in one order. Very happy with
the quality of each item.
Weather has not allowed me to
use my Yak yet,I look forward
to great times next year!
Hi! I am very satisfied with the
Venus 11, the paddle, the leash, the
hatch cover and the PFD.
All excellent quality and I am truly
enjoying being out on the water. A
wonderful kayak and a great sport.
!! thank you
Great kayak with lots of
storage! Easily throw a cooler
back for a day on the water.
This kayak is awesome! The
only negative is that the
slants forward and tends to
hit my sonwho is taller in the
of his back and rubs
uncomfortably. WE have
cushion so he sits forward
more. HOpefully that wont be a
for bigger kayakers.

I'm 5'5" tall and this kayak
is perfect for me. It's easy
to handle, I
can get it in and out of the
water without help. I love
it. The seat is
comfortable. The paddle is
light and slightly oval where
fits. Highly recommend the

The Venus package that I
ordered and have been using
every chance I get is a great
package. The life vest,
paddle, paddle leach, hatch
and small 6 inch hatch for
personal items are all
fantastic assets to this kayak
. I have been ocean kayaking
several times and it handles
well, its lightweight yet
tracks nicely. I would
recommend this to women who
want an efficient lightweight
Love this kayak, lightweight,
easy to handle and very
comfortable. Has three
handles, makes it easy to
cartop it by myself. And it
paddles great, too.
Fantastic package deal! I researched many different sites and ACK by far exceeded my expectations! Love my kayak and its accessories. The life jacket fit perfectly; happy to have the hatch kit; kayak is a bit wide but cuts through the water beautifully and very easy and stable paddling. Thanks ACK!
I had gotten this package for my wife and we couldn't be happier. Locally they were
selling the Venus 11 for $600 with no seat, hatch cover nothing. Just the kayak itself
stripped with less color options. So the price here with all of this is to say at the
least 'a real bargain.' We looked into similar packages and none even came close to the
quality of accessories. The PFD is quality, comfortable, all around great! The paddle
leash is quality too. Very nice just in case. The seat is comfortable almost like it was
made specifically for the Venus 11. The hatch cover is a must no matter what so not much
to say other than that. The paddle worked great as well. great control, speed, everything
you could want or ask for. Very sturdy. This package is the real deal. Not like other
packages elsewhere marked at a good price throwing in a bunch of poop just to make it
look like a good deal. This is the best deal I seen anywhere. The kayak has great
stability even in wavy waters, entrance and exit, and speed. Great storage space, more
than all its competitors in its price range. It is light enough for my wife to carry even
through some harry spots. And after a long tiring day of kayaking getting it up on my
trucks ladder racks is a piece of cake. You can't go wrong with this package. I have and
would recommend it to all. There should be no second thoughts on this. Get it and you
will be happy.
