Kayak Make & Model

Sun Dolphin
Journey 10 SS
MSRP ($):
Length (ft):

In addition to their sit-in range of fishing kayaks, Sun Dolphin also has a few sit-on models, with the Journey 10 SS being the smallest. It is 10’ in length and measures in at 30” in width while weighing only 44 lbs. Despite being so compact, the Journey 10 SS still offers a decent enough capacity of 250 lbs. Of course, if you are taller than six feet this kayak is going to feel a little cramped, in which case the Sun Dolphin Journey 12 SS will be a better option.

The Journey 10 SS offers decent enough tracking for its size, but once again the Journey 12 SS might be a better option in terms of tracking. This kayak does have everything you need as a beginner, so you can expect two flush mount fishing rod holders behind the seat, as well as one swivel fishing rod holder at the front. The seating area is large and comfortable, while the protective thigh pads are a blessing for long trips. The Journey 10 SS also has adjustable foot braces to keep you comfortable and a paddle holder to ensure it doesn’t get in the way while you are fishing.

It’s a little tricky to access the rear storage while out on the water, but at least it is very secure. There has also been reports by some owners of the Journey 10 SS that the scupper holes let in too much water, which can be an issue. As with many of the budget range fishing kayaks, it might be a good idea to reseal all of the screws on this kayak and invest in some scupper plugs if you want to get the most out of the Journey 10 SS. The seat could also have been more comfortable, but this is another common issue amongst budget priced kayaks. Finally, while this kayak is stable enough to fish from, it is not stable enough to do so while standing.

The bottom line is that the Sun Dolphin Journey 10 SS is a nice entry level sit-inside fishing kayak for those on a tight budget. It’s not going to give you the same kind of performance and features as you would find on a serious fishing kayak, but neither is it going to set you back as much.
