As great as dedicated fishing kayaks are, they are not always the most practical solution if you want something that is also versatile enough to take your family out on the water with you for some recreational fun. If this is a dilemma that you find yourself facing, then the Ocean Kayak Malibu Pedal could be a good solution, provided that you are willing to put down the cash.


The Malibu Pedal is not cheap, but what you get for your money is a stable and durable kayak that comes with a PDL Drive System. With the pedal you are able to reach speeds of 5.5 miles per hour and it has a 10.3:1 gear ratio to ensure efficient pedaling. The PDL Drive system is very easy to mount and can also be quickly tipped up into its docking position if you reach shallow water. Since the pedals are padded they are comfortable to use even when you are barefoot and the console for the PDL Drive System pulls double duty as a splash resistant storage.


This kayak comes with an Element Beach Seat that has a mesh storage pocket underneath and it is fully equipped with a slide-lock seat adjustment system as well as backrest adjustment straps. The open-mesh textalene fabric of the seat also means it remains comfortable on hot days. While the kayak doesn't come with any rod holders, it does have an 8-inch accessory track, so you can equip it the way you like. It does have a spacious bow tankwell, that Ocean Kayak advertises as being very dog-friendly, should you want to take your pet along for the ride. Plus, the stern tankwell jump-seat means that the kayak is perfect for an outing with one of the younger members of your family. If you go out alone these tankwells are large enough to provide plenty of storage and have bungees to keep everything secured.


There isn't a lot of drawbacks to this kayak, apart from the fact that the click seal hatch below the seat isn't exactly accessible when you are sitting in the kayak. Other than that, this is a very comfortable kayak that is easy to maneuver and versatile enough for fishing as well as family outings.
