Some of you might like kayaking or canoeing. Braving the open seas hopefully not too far off the coast. Enjoying the freedom to travel over water just like roadies doing an epic drive. If only you can also see what’s under your canoe or kayak too as you paddle!
Well, that’s a wish coming true.
Introducing the Crystal kayak (read here for article). Made from polycarbonate material, the kayaks are transparent on all sides except for the frame. Now you don’t have to snorkel to see the fishes beneath the water. You can become an observer from a distance, and not intrude overtly into the lives of the denizens of the deep…heheh, we are simplifying it a little. But you know that.
The kayak will grant you the opportunity to look beneath you even as you paddle or thread water. How deep you can see will depend on where you are and how clear the waters are, obviously. So in our view this is best for crystal clear waters in places like the Maldives, parts of the Caribbean etc. You know, places where there are few/no pollutants and little churn that turns the water murky.
The article says the product is ‘flying’ off the shelves even though it is priced at £1,199 each (right at the time we read the post). We don’t know about you. But we sure weren’t thinking about buying one for ourselves. Rather, we were hoping the resorts we will reside in will have one (some we mean).
Here to another innovation in the world of leisure travel. Would you kayak in one if you had the opportunity?
