Rated one of the fastest sit-on-top recreational tandems on the market, the Zest Two Expedition kayak is perfect for a day trek or a weekend adventure. The kayak is made of medium-density polyethylene, a virtually indestructible material that's somewhat flexible (so it doesn't crack), but also maintains its stiffness thanks to Ocean Kayak's compound curves.

The Zest Two Expedition kayak measures 16 feet 4.5 inches long, with 2 molded-in seat wells for adults.
The materials are complemented by a California-form tri-hull design, which includes a long center keel area that encourages boats to track straight when paddling and coasting. The result? A kayak that steers well and is easy to control on the waves regardless of whether you're just starting out or are an experienced paddler. The kayak's unique sit-on-top design, meanwhile, allows you to enter and exit the kayak easily from the shore, dock, or water. In a sit-on-top kayak, you can safely enjoy all the pleasures of kayaking without having to learn difficult self-rescue maneuvers.

The Zest Two is outfitted with two molded-in seat wells, helping it fit two adults plus a small child or pet. Other construction details include molded-in foot wells that provide a comfortable foot position for just about any size paddler; a tank well with bungee cords for easy gear storage; self-bailing drain holes in the cockpit that allows water that enters the kayak to immediately flow back out; and a molded-in cupholder. The Zest Two is also compatible with several Ocean Kayak accessory kits (all sold separately), including a rudder system ideal for high winds and currents, up to two oval Gaspachi hatches, or up to three 6-inch hatches.
