Fishing with a kayak enhances your ability to be more accessible as if you can easily move to the target points by pedaling. Furthermore, most of the professional level fishing kayaks have everything in the design as if you can become more connected with your fishing expedition and store the gears neatly in your very near. This Sit on Top Kayak is something like that as it is designed for both professional and amateur anglers. The newbies also can maintain this kayak easily and in truth I love this Sun Dolphin Bali 10 SS for the lightweightness, stiffness, stability, great capacity and storage compartments.

Honestly, it is an amazing feeling for every angler to get a kayak at an affordable cost with lots of specifications. And I think this kayak is something like that as it has affordability and some great specifications that meet almost all requirements of the anglers. Below I have highlighted some basic specifications of this kayak and if you want this kayak for other kayaking sports that is also great as it is a versatile kayak.


Specifications & Features That Make It Great

This kayak may have not been designed for fishing in offshore, but if you want to use it for fishing in inshore, lake or river, then obviously that would be great.

The Kayak Is Stable And Comfortable

The kayak is 10 feet in length and 34 inches in width and weighs 44 only lbs. On the other hand it has 250 lbs weight capacity that is great as a single person kayak. So you can even easily stand up on the kayak while the large cockpit is comfortable for stretching out the legs with adjustable foot braces. In the middle of the cockpit it has a hole that can grab the drinks while a bottle holder also can hold the water bottle securely. Additionally a mini compartment in the center also allows you to securely put the fishing gears.

The kayak also has a padded seat with adjustable straps for the back, but if you want to make this place more comfortable, then you can adjust a padded saddle to sit and pedal the kayak comfortably with avoiding the fatigueness.


The kayak is amazingly stiff

This Sun Dolphin Bali 10 SS is made of UV-stabilized Fortiflex High Density Polyethylene that is excellently stiff and won’t crack or break when you use it, carry it or lift up it into the car or down from the car.  The excellently stiff exterior helps to easily pass it into the stream and makes it speedy to simplify the pedaling attempt. On the other hand, because of the UV stabilized body the sunlight can’t affect the kayak’s body and its color. As the result, the stiffness and the color of it will be unchangeable for years after years.


It Has The Large Storage Option

If you go for a fishing expedition, you need to carry many things like fishing accessories, foods and water bottles. And that’s why it features a portable accessory carrier, rear deck storage compartment with bungee, and a mini storage compartment in the center. So you can safely store the things with keeping them 100% dried. If you use the portable accessory carrier separately, then you can set up a fishing cooler on the rear deck storage that is actually an extra advantage.


It has A Paddle Holder

The paddle holder mainly helps you to keep your hands free especially when you are not in pedaling. So you can keep the paddle in a safer place.

  • Very Stiff and composed with UV-stabilized materials.
  • Affordable Price.
  • Large Storage Option.
  • Additional Portable Accessory Carrier.
  • Adjustable Foot Braces.
  • Paddle Holder.
  • The Kayak is Speedy and easy to pedal.



  • The kayak doesn’t have a bottom seat. So you need to buy a saddle to increase the comfort.
  • The Kayak Doesn’t Have the Rod Holder. So you have to separately adjust the rod holders. But if you want to use it for other purposes, then no need to add any rod holder.


Final Verdict

Every angler wants stability, durability, affordability and the ability of storing the accessories into the kayak. The kayak has everything, but unfortunately the kayak does not include any rod holder and that’s why you would have to adjust the rod holders by DIY method. Many people also use this Sit on Top Kayak for other purposes, so if you have that kind of purpose, then you don’t need any rod holder.
