Walmart Kayak Sale
Jamie here! I recently bought a couple kayaks for fishing and paddling around the local lakes and it was almost IMPOSSIBLE to find one back in March. NOW? So much more difficult!! If you've been desperately searching for a kayak from Walmart or any other sporting good stores – you are aware that we're reaching toilet-paper level shortages….
With vacations being cancelled and pools being closed – folks are hitting the lakes and rivers for ways to have fun on the water closer to home.
Kayaks are selling out the moment they're moved onto the floor. Within minutes of getting an email that they're restocked online, they're back out of stock again. So that's why I was SO excited to finally find something (anything at this point!) that's available to order and doesn't cost a small fortune.
Here's the Walmart Kayak option we found in stock:
Lifetime Tahoma 10″ Sit-On-Top Kayak in Lime Green (Paddle Included) – $241.25 (Reg $300)
Add $69.99 Freight Delivery
Makes it $311.24 Shipped (+ tax)
This is a good basic kayak with a 275 lb capacity – and the fact that it comes WITH the paddle will save you $40 – $50 you would've spent buying your own. (Seems odd but some kayaks do NOT come with their own!) The only problem is it won't come until August 21 🙁
If you've ever wanted an inflatable kayak – they're super fun and a perfect way to “own a boat” that fits in your trunk! It's also an excellent option for those who can't haul a 50lb kayak around by themselves…
Intex Challenger K1 Inflatable Kayak – $179.95
+ FREE Shipping by July 7th
Makes it $179.95 Shipped!
Note: I got a little Intex inflatable kayak a couple summers ago with the kids and they had a blast in it! You'll want to snag this electric air pump with a car adaptor so you can inflate when you get where you're going. The hand pump it comes with is pretty slow and tedious…

Fishing Kayaks are generally a little easier to keep in a straight line and they stay more steady on the water. There's lots of places to stash your gear and rods. Weight capacity on this one is 300lbs.

Need a Youth or Kids Kayak?
Need a kayak for the kids? (or you!) Sometimes a youth kayak will fit a grown person just fine- provided they have a lower center of gravity (shorties!) and are around the right weight class. My friend Lindsay is 5'4″ and medium build – and uses a Lifetime Kid's Kayak exclusively because it's easier for her to lift on her own and tow around.
Amazon has a nice youth kayak that will ship fast with Prime right now:
