BRAND NEW 2021 LIGHTWEIGHT TOURING MODEL! Discover a stable, lightweight kayak that is impressively fast.
Watch the high definition walkthrough video showing all the features and on water test of the Aquanauta kayak.
The Aquanauta is the shortest touringkayak of the Bay Sports family of Sit In kayaks. Customer feedback told us people wanted a speedy, flat water kayak that accelerated fast, easy to handle and was stable, but without being enormous and lengthy, typically associated with Sit In type kayaks.
Easily capable of 10km+ adventures, our 3.3m Aquanauta can reach speeds up to 12km/h and will be sure to impress you.
Extraordinary acceleration for such a compact, short natured kayak.
Light compact touring kayak for those who desire speed on the water, but prefer a compact, lighter weight kayak body.
Perfect for those with limited storage space at home / in the garage.
Design & Construction
It's lightweight and compact design makes it effortless for one person to lift up onto their car roof, easy to carry to and from the waters edge.
Foot-Controlled rudder system to assist with tracking in a straight line, with pull cord to pull up and let down the rudder in shallow waters.
Made from high-grade UV stabilised HDPE material for the Australian conditions.
A V-shaped hull with hard chine, and little rocker, easily cuts through water whilst paired with the rudder system provide for excellent tracking.
The build quality is the best in class, with no traces of air bubbles inside the UV stabilised plastic walls, meaning your kayak is superior in durability and won't crack like brittle plastic kayaks prone to air bubbles, due to poor quality control.
Tested to ensure 3.5mm thickness, drop tested to ensure perfect plastic bond, balance tested for optimal stability, and water tested to ensure perfect seals. So rest assured your kayak will last for years to come.
Bay Sports are a trusted kayak brand with years of research and development, so assurance of quality is of absolute importance. We are so confident in the build quality that all our kayaks come with a full 5 year warranty & 5 year UV resistance rating.

The service is second to none - top marks for Bay Sports on quick, personalised, responsive service. And patience with a couple of my followup questions. I haven't seen it if it exists but a user forum (perhaps using the facebook page?) for questions and experiences shared by us might help even more.
The Kayak - she is beautiful. Sleeker - and so faster - than most others around (slightly less stable is the tradeoff, but I haven't tipped her over yet as the keel is good). And just looks so awesome as she purrs through the water. I have now been on Lake, calm ocean and in creek.
A couple of tiny matters that could be looked at. The mini-trolley is 2-3cms too wide to fully fit into the rear compartment. That was a selling point, so a minor disappointment there. Also, the seating cockpit has no way of tipping out collected water. A small bunghole on the top side would resolve that, and make it easier to do a quick bale as waves (or rain) or just water sloshed in as I get in and out collects there.
I am still getting the rudder strings right for best effect there, but I am starting to see how that'll come together. Work in progress for me still.
And all up well under a grand - for all the above. That's astounding value, Australian made high quality. Cannot be sad about that at all.
This is a positive 4.5+ stars ... all but perfection. The SS. Kalianna Kayak is all but perfect.
Baysports were great to deal with and kept me updated on progress. The Aquanauta is great to paddle and so easy to cart around. Should have done this years ago. The rudder assembly is so easy to attach and makes such a difference - the video makes it foolproof. This will get a lot of use for quite some time.
Am extremely happy with the Aquanauta! I have very limited space at my house, so wanted a shorter sit-in kayak, without having to forego sea/touring ability and build quality. This kayak tracks very well out on open water, and is stable and maneuverable when needed. The service received from Bay Sports was excellent, and speed of delivery was almost unbelievable!!! Would definitely recommend this kayak and company to anyone interested.
My Aquanauta - 3.3m Single Sit In Kayak that I purchsed recently is a step up from my old wide sit on Kayak. I am very happy in every aspect ..purchase, transport, packaging and condition on arrival. The bay sports video assisted me in assembling the rudder. The kayak is light weight and easy to transort.I have been out on river, bay and dam this past week and can't wait to get baçk on the water.
