Old Town® Heron 9 Kayak
Introductory-level one-person kayak with large cockpit for easier entry and exit.
The superior design of this Old Town kayak allows it to track better and paddle easier than other entry-level kayaks in its class. It helps build confidence and keeps interest piqued in students who are just learning the basics of kayak technique, but its versatility and responsiveness make it a great choice for advanced kayakers as well.
Intro Level Kayak
The Heron 9 is the result of many decades of building recreational kayaks. A compact, sporty design makes the Heron an easy-to-paddle kayak that tracks well and easily maneuvers. It is perfect for beginning paddlers who are seeking a stable, lightweight kayak designed for having fun on the water.
Comfort and Durability
A light, yet durable angle-layer polyethylene shell preserves this kayak throughout years of use. It features contoured carrying handles with a 300 lb capacity.
The Glide Track foot brace system is designed to fit any foot comfortably. With an intuitive, easy-to-reach adjustment system and position indicators, it is easy to get the foot braces set to the same comfortable length on each side. A larger cockpit enables users to get in and out easier, and an adjustable Comfort Flex seat with padding makes it more comfortable than comparable kayaks available on the market.
