KL Industries Sun Dolphin Journey SS Kayak Review
If you want a good hard-shell fishing kayak that is already rigged and outfitted for anglers like you – and you want it at an affordable price – then the KL Industries Sun Dolphin Journey SS Kayak is definitely one for you to consider.
What you get here is a high quality kayak with a nice open cockpit that is easy to get in and out of. And the adjustable foot braces make this the perfect fishing kayak for tall people since you can tweak it to meet your height for a comfortable day of fishing.
I also think that this one is a really good price since for most anglers out there. Depending on which color you order it in, you can definitely buy this one a good price by shopping around and comparing prices, which makes it a good, cheap buy for a rigid fishing kayak that is already rigged.
You can also order it in either a 10-foot or 12-foot length, which also changes the price that you pay. Either way you cut it, this is still one heck of a deal right here.

To answer some questions that shoppers have had, let me offer the following…
Can you use this kayak in the ocean?
Yes, but in the waves you will definitely get wet.
What is the difference between the 10-ft and the 12-ft options other than size?
Biggest difference is the tracking. The 12 foot is only slightly heavier but tracks so much better especially in the wind. The extra 2 feet helps keep the bow straight with very little correction needed when paddling plus it’s more stable.
Is the fishing pole holder removable?
Yes and no. The two that are flush mount are not removable, while the swivel one is removable.
